The truly interesting thing is why does the SATA power connector have a 3.3v line on it too (orange wire) while the standard molex is just 5v and 12v?

I'm not 100% positive but I think its being standardized now in order to support larger cache sizes in future drives (sata 6.0gbs)

Some people think that the X2 is a little expensive for its performance...kookoo.gif
