scsi cable length vs speed

our 5304/128 controller is talking to storage works 4354r cabinets with 36gb ultra3 15k drives......the scsi cables that we received are 12footers...
will we get any performance improvements with shorter cables???

no ! lvd scsi (ultra2, ultra3) will run at full speed even across 12 meter (40 feet) cales !!

if you heve performance problems you probably have not the required high number of disk drives (very important for random i/o as in data bases) or a raid configuration that does not reflect your expectations (e.g. raid5 write performance is quite mediocre - which is a problem of raid 5 and not ogf the hw you use)
