    OCZ set to launch blazing-fast 64GB SSD drive and new watercooled DDR3

    120MB/s read speed and 100MB/s write speed in a sexy enclosure. It's whetting my appetite already.

    Not much point going to 3.5" if the drive physically doesn't need the space. The MTRON drives have 3.5" versions.

    But you can always get an adapter if you want to mount it in a 3.5" drive bay. Or alternatively get eight 2.5" drives and mount them sideways in a hotswap rack across two 5.25" drive bays

    Good to see SSD speeds going up, as well as capacities!

    I was thinking adapter for the 2.5" connectors not the drive itself, that bits easily solved as you said, thing is normal case power and SATA cables wont fit :/

    Disagree, look at this 2.5"


    compaired to



    The 2.5" is closer together so standard ones wont fit IME...

    They are exactly the same. I do it all the time, sticking 2.5" SATA laptop drives in my 3.5" enclosure for quicker backups than over the network.

    SATA is the standard of connection so they can't just change connection type and call it SATA, even when you've got differen USB there's additional note is it A, B or mini USB, same with Firewire.
    So this HDD you can connect via SATA :-D and I'm just waiting for some cheap SSD to put OS on one and most used software on another so I can use my mechanical HDD as data bank and enjoy fast loading OS & soft :-D

    I didnt say the connectors were different I just said that they seemed IMHO to be closer together on 2.5" drives compaired to 3.5" drives which removed the possibility of installing a 2.5" SSD into a desktop machine without use of a knife or some sort of convertor.

    I can't believe how fast these things are getting.

    In all seriousness, I appreciate that more laptops are sold than desktops, now, but why are there NO 3.5in SSD drives?

    Size doesnt matter does it, connectors are the same, the smaller it is the less material is used so less cost, no?

    Re: OCZ set to launch blazing-fast 64GB SSD drive and new watercooled DDR3

    wouldn't making it 3.5" in the first place be better anyway? more space for cooling and more chips on-board for extra space?
    you could make it 3.5" and ultra-thin..
    just an idea.
