I'd be curious to see you swap cables back to the old one and retest to see if the numbers go back down.

lol, that wont happen for a while...I have the drive mounted in a weird way in my case that took a few minutes to do properly and don't feel like redoing it. lol

Though....I may change my mine when I get the new power adapters in the mail...I'll update you if I do.

are these write speeds fast enough, or should I have ordered a hyper x?

Nice job. Now after I get a new monitor and keyboard, I might consider getting one!
post #20 of 24
If I go for the Plextor M3, even though it's SATA III while my mobo is SATA II 3 GB/s max, it will still work but won't exceed the limitation of SATA II, right? I'd rather but something I can use later when I upgrade my system.
