Default WD Raptor HDD 74GB

I Have a WD Raptor HDD, it has both a SATA Power slot and the traditional Molex power slot, which one is better to use, the SATA or Molex slot?

Is there any difference in performance between these two power sources?

nah i dont think there is any difference personally i dont see why they are changing the molex power connectors to SATA ?

i mean why change it ..... unless its something to do with the hot swappable capabilities of the SATA drives ?

You might as well use the sata once.. since nothing else does.
