View Full Version : Sata Ii

I am keeping my SATA drivers that are in my sig when I rebuild my rig in the future. They are the WD 74gb raptors. My question is would getting a SATA II capable motherboard have any meaningful impact on their performance?

I really doubt it. The bottleneck with drives is usually the drive itself, not the speed of the interface. As speedy as those Raptors are... I doubt they could sustain even a 150MB transfer rate. ;)

Thanks, basically what I expected and still wanted feedback.

And no raptors are not close to 150 sustained, that is more like burst :p

Still I love 'em they do very well compared to what I was used to.
