STAT power cable

    This might be a stupid question, but does it make any difference at
    all which power cable I use for a SATA drive? The drive came with a
    SATA power cable, but the drive also has a conventional four pin
    socket for a regular power cable. I've plugged it into the four pin
    and it works fine. Is it just an extra option or is there a benefit to
    using the SATA power cable? Thanks.

    Re: SATA power cable

    Okay, I just noticed I mispelled SATA in the subject line of my
    original post.

    Not.

    Of course, it's a different connector with more pins.
