IDE Channels on Cube :::

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Does anyone know how many ide channels the cube has? Are the optical & the hard disk on the same channel? or separated?


how long is the ide cables?

curious because........

i'm upgrading the HD and was going to get a round cable to improve airflow [since i'll also be upgrading the processor & vid card too ;-)]

    The cube has a single bus. The hard disk is the master, and the CD drive the slave. I don't knwo how long the ATA cable is, but I think it is a custom length that exactly fits the enclosure. The ribbon is on the periphery of the interior and shouldn't impede airflow in any case.

    thanks fluffy!

    one ide channel? ....!!!! :_(

    maybe I'll just keep with the ribbon cable then........

    if the ribbon was restricting any type of airflow, then i was going to opt for the rounded cables......
