  1. I have 2 hds right now 2 satas hard drive 230 gig and a 300 both maxtor..if i buy a raptor and use it as my main drive would the speed of the other 2 effect the raptors 10k rpm at all?cause i want to keep the others as slaves

    Btw guys do raptor drivers use the standard sata connections?

    SATA drive speeds are independant of other sata drives. They all run on their own channels.

    A fast drive will run fast, a slow drive slow.

    Yes, Raptors use a standard SATA connector.

    Master/slave is meaningless in the SATA world.

    If you have a PCI system, then three fast drives can saturate the PCI bus, but in normal use that would be a really rare occasion.
