[qanda]This thread is about the Western Digital VelociRaptor 74GB. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]The VelociRaptor is an SATA 1 HD ... will it operate on an SATA 2 MOB??
Most boards should use it fine, some like early VIA chipset boards can have issues.
Look up a forum for the board you have and see if anyone lists any issues using that drive with it just to be safe I’d think.
Every ODD is SATA1500 and works perfectly with intel SATA3000 ICH motherboards.
Thanks for the help Dartman & anikk … I am building a pc using the new Core I7 format … I appreciate any advice you can come up with at anytime.
Being a Intel based system my bet is 99% it will work fine with that drive so build away.
