thanks for the tips buddy ! I got 2 Blues, they work great so far!
I will try and upload some test results next weekend ( I am away this one).
The one thing that was funny, I couldnt connect them both to SATA Port 2 and Port 3, which are on top of each other. I had to connect one of the hard drives to Port 5 for both of them to be recognised. I asked about it in this thread, would really appreciate if you could have a quick look if you have experienced something similar !
