    Hey guys, a quick 2 questions please.

    1) Is the Western Digital 1TB RE3 3.5 HD reccommended for the 8 Core MP? Or am I better of sticking to the WD 1TB Black Caviar?

    2) When ordering my HDD do I also need the cables? Or do I just need to order the drive as it is?

    Hey guy, 2 quick answers:

    1) both are possible and often discussed here, RE3 might be more recommended for building a RAID or 24/7
    2) bay 1-4 needs no further cables at all, as 2nd optical drive bay in MP 09 doesn´t neither

    And 1 suggestion:

    RE4 is on it´s way even for higher capacity

    Unless you want to use your MacPro as a Server, don't buy the Raid Edition drives.
    They are supposed for 24/7 applications.
