Hi. Just wanna ask, does sata cables quality and age, can affect performance? When I built a pc, I use old sata cables, from my old pc parts, from long time ago, when hdd comes from ide to sata connection times. It's safe?

Yes.
If your sata cable is certified for 1.5gbps operation, it may produce data errors in 6gbps operation mode. As the result, data transfer rate will be shifted to lower bandwidth operation mode.

For reference:
SATA1 - 1.5gbps,​
SATA2 - 3gbps,​
SATA3 - 6gbps.​
Thanks. There is any good brand of sata cables? I somewhere read there is gold coated or something...
