3.5 inch vs 2.5 inch HDD power requirments
I have two RGH'd Xbox 360s (this probably isn't relevant). On one, I installed a 500gb 2.5 inch SATA HDD and it just worked the same way you'd expect it to work on a normal pc. I simply took the old one out, put the new one in and formatted. I didn't even have to solder anything.
Now I need to put a new hard drive in my other RGH'd Xbox. I don't have any more 2.5 inch SATA hard drives but I have a few 3.5 inch ones. The connectors are the same so it should work but I'm asking on here just to make sure.
Are there any special power requirements that are different between 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch drives? Is it the same voltage?
my pc specs:
Asus P9X79 Socket 2011
Intel Core i7-3930k @ 4.5GHz OC
Cooler Master 212 Evo
EVGA GeForce GTX 680 4GB
240GB Corsair Force GT SSD
1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm
Cooler Master Silent ProM 850W
