Do I need to buy a specific SATA cable to support 6.0GB/s, or does the hard drive come with one?

More about : 0gb sata cable

You are aware that the SATA 6.0 feature is just a marketing gimmick. Most magnetic drives barely saturate the original 1.5gbps sata, and don't even approach SATA 3.0 limits. Need a SSD to reach that.



You did tell me something I didn’t know so thanks for that; but you didn’t answer the question. I do have a SSD drive and my mother board came with 4 SATA cables, 2 3.0 and 2 more 6.0. Their color coded but nowhere can I find any reference to which is which. Does it matter?

Thanks in advance.

No it doesent matter. As twobit said, it barely can do 1.5 GB speeds so either cable works.
