    Default Do sata 3 drives require sata 3 cables?

    Hi guys, I've had some issues in the past trying to get my sata3 h/d working properly in win 7 64bit, and not been too successful - it just disappears, or won't format properly, as others here are reporting.

    I'm now seeing places advertising sata3 cables - gimmick, or do you actually need sata3 cables to get the most out of your sata3 port and h/d?

    +1 ^^

    SATA 3Gb/s and SATA 6Gb/s use the same cable standard, both will work fine either way.
