Just a curiosity at this point…
I have plans to put 1 or 2 SSD HDDs in my MacPro 5,1 via PCIe card hopefully before the year is out.
But what about the 4 SATA II bays? At the minute I just have whatever drives were laying around when I bought the machine (1TB - 4TB, all 5400rpm), but I rather like the idea of finding some 7200’s to pop in instead.
Then I was reading about the limitations of SATA II… and got terribly confused as to what actually is the “best” option, without going for something that sounds better but wont actually perform as expected due to the hardware’s limitations…???
Anyone have some pointers on this?
