Anyone else try this recently?
Thinking of giving it a shot on my late 2009 2.53.
Cool - thanks.
SSD is a great idea!
At first the directions looked pretty hairy, but now it is just too tempting not too. Surprised that newegg didn't have the slim power sata cable in stock, so Amazon it is.
Has anyone else used RAID 0 here? Is there a noticeable performance difference with the RAID 0 setup as opposed to a just a single 7200rpm drive?
For the 6 to 4 connector, I ordered this from newegg:
Now I've noticed that it doesn't have the four wires shown - red, yellow, and two black - but just one red and one black.
Can I still use this somehow?
Nevermind! Read above! :0
Ugh. Just soldered it together, only to realize my cable has a slimline SATA *female* instead of male.
Quote from Andy Denis:
Any chance you guys can post a link to the slim line version please? Thanks
Yikes! Can't seem to find it all! The key is that you need molex / slim sata MALE. Newegg and amazon have the female version, which will not work, but the male version seems to have vanished! Especially off of newegg - i can swear it was there two weeks ago but now it's not even listed.
