SATA2 is faster than SATA.

However both those drives are actually SATA2 drives. NCQ dosn't exist on regular SATA drives as far as I know. That's just another title error by NCIX lol

It fits perfectly; really nice PSU. Although in the Antec 900 it will be upside down; with the fan blowing into the case and all the lettering and nice decals being upside down haha. I modded the case so it could sit right. But as far as dimensions and so on go it works fit just fine under the mobo edge and i didn't have too much of an issue hiding the extra cables with it.
