Question  sata cable by bones

hi does this come with a sata cable or do you have to buy one for it

Answer by andrewn on Tuesday, February 7, 2012
Usually SATA cables are not included with HDDs, so you will probably need to get one seperately. Typically spares are provided with the motherboard, though if you have a pre-built 'OEM' system such as a dell they may not have been provided.

Question  Question by Flynn

Is 6GB/s the transfer rate?

Answer by daniele on Thursday, November 10, 2011
On computers with SATA III interfaces, 6Gb/s is the maximum bandwidth

Question  SATA to IDE MB by Joolz

Would this HDD work on an Asus P4P800-MX mobo using a SATA to IDE Bi-directional converter (Quick code 36067)? Would I ned any additional leads?

Answer by daniele on Saturday, September 17, 2011
Yes. You would need a SATA data cable (like 41415) and a SATA power cable which would usually be on your PSU. If you do not have SATA power on your PSU, you can use a 4-pin Molex to SATA adapter (7683)
