    If you want to build a computer with the newer Serial Drives do they require
    a new type of power supply and case? Or can the normal ATX case and power
    supply plug into these new serial hard drives?

    Some of the drives use the older standard hard drive connectors. Other
    drives and some motherboards ship with adapters. Some newer power supplies
    have SATA power connectors as well. No changes to the case needed as they
    are the same size and use the same mounting holes/screws as other 3.5"
    drives.

    Is there an adapter you can get to use the old power supplies?
