What does the SATA power cable connect to?
In a PC setup, SATA cables can be used to connect the hard disk to the motherboard. Hard disks typically feature multiple inlet ports, at least one of which will be SATA compatible. The SATA cable is also responsible for supplying power to the hard disk so additional hard drive power cables may not be required.
Is it safe to use SATA to 8 pin?
Its generally not a safe way to get the amperage to the unit. Adapters are typically never a good choice, SATA and Molex are the two worst to use.
Does power go through SATA?
Yes. Sata drives generally need power though a power port beside sata data cable port. You may esaily find in the hdd port area and see two ports the small one is for sata data cable and big one for sata hdd power port.
What is SuperDOM port?
Supermicro SATA DOM (SuperDOM) Solutions The Supermicro SATA DOM (Disk on Module), the SuperDOM, is a small SATA3 (6Gb/s) flash memory module designed to be conveniently inserted into a serverboard SATA connector to provide high performance solid state storage capacity that simulates a hard disk drive (HDD).
Where do I plug in my SATA power cable?
SATA uses simple cables that are keyed to fit on the drive and motherboard connector one way. Connect one end of the SATA cable to the drive, and the other end to an available SATA port on your motherboard, and you’re halfway there.
Is 6pin to SATA safe?
If you are trying to use a SATA power to 6-pin PCI-e adapter to power a GPU, is not a good idea. Your PSU does not have 6-pin PCI-e because is not able to deliver the power (AMPs or voltage or both) a GPU needs. You could cause damage the PSU or the GPU or both.
Can I use SATA to 6pin?
Short answer: yes, it will work. Longer answer: while it’s possible, you really shouldn’t do it. The 6pin pci-e connector is supposed to transfer up to 75w to the video card, so if you use a simple adapter that has a single SATA connector at one end, it’s not going to end well.
Does SATA cable include power?
SATA power comes with the PSU. A couple of SATA data cables come with the motherboard.
Does SATA DOM need power?
and write 116MB/s (max.). Moreover, InnoDisk SATADOM is designed with enhanced functionalities and various small form-factors for 1U applications. SATADOM has built-in power at pin 7th SATA connector, thus can be connected to the SATA port without additional power cable.
What does a SATA DOM do?
The SATA DOM (Disk on Module) is a small flash memory module designed to be conveniently inserted into a server board SATA connector to provide high-performance solid-state storage capacity that simulates a hard disk drive (HDD).
What is the Supermicro SATA DOM?
The Supermicro SATA DOM (Disk on Module), the SuperDOM, is a small SATA3 (6Gb/s) flash memory module designed to be conveniently inserted into a serverboard SATA connector to provide high performance solid state storage capacity that simulates a hard disk drive (HDD).
What is the difference between a SATA DOM and a HDD?
Supermicro SATA DOMs are extremely reliable without any moving parts like standard HDDs and are smaller in size and lighter in weight with greatly improved performance, latency and power consumption (~ 1W-2W per SATA DOM vs. 6W-7W for an HDD). The Supermicro SuperDOM operates up to 2x faster than other SATA DOM products in the industry.
Does the Supermicro superdom require a 5V power cable?
Due to its optimized design the Supermicro SuperDOM does not require a 5V power cable as do other SATA DOM products on the market, thus improving performance and reliability. However, it is still backward compatible with server boards requiring this 5V power cable.
