Default Re: How many uf do i need to cope with the HDD inrush current

I remade my cable using better quality wire (without adding caps to the wire)
this alone did not fix the issue
added a drive during a benchmark:

After adding 470uf caps on +5 and +12 (Low ESR Panasonic, rated at 25v)

it did not help,
When i connected the caps it caused my main HDDs to spin down

* The large drop in the read speed is when i connect a second HDD in my second bay
