If you have manually set your drives as master and slave, then it does not matter where you have it connected. Anybody who thinks otherwise is falling victim to the placebo effect.
No, I set them to master and slave. I'd love to see this documented somewhere reliable. Googling found nothing that I would consider reliable. Dotan Cohen http://technology-sleuth.com
