Ok my friends, I've decided not to give up on my RAID 0 config. I love my WD 1T Blacks but they just arent meant for RAID 0.

My Crosshair III Formula supports up to 2T in RAID 0. The plan is to start with 2 HD's and then when I can afford it I will add up to 3 additional HD's (5 HD's beeing the max on this board) which means that the max capacity of the HD's should not exceed 400GB per HD (400GB X 5 HD's = 2T).

I have see and heard a lot of good things about the Velociraptor 300 GB and know that a lot of my buddies out here run and love them. I know that I will be happy with this HD but I am not really willing to spend $199.99 each on HD's. I am thinking that the Velociraptor 150 GB is closer to my budget right now.

Any input on this will be greatly appreciated.. I am also wondering if anyone has any other sugestions on HD's that will run well in RAID 0.

Thanks guys


Anyone looking for a good deal on 1 or 2 WD 1T HD's PM me and I will make you a good deal.. I purchased them on the 8th of Oct 2009 so they are brand freaking new..

Also, if anyone knows of a good deal on some rapters please post here.

I just do not understand how Samsung F3's can beat a 10,000rpm drive. I do wish it were some other brand....but that's honestly really cool.

Platter density.



also, I don't think any drive is ever "meant" for RAID, but I don't forsee any problems.

Plenty of people running htem in RAID0 without issue it seems: http://www.bing.com/search?q=S...-SearchBox&FORM=IE8SRC

Mmm thing is he's looking for 400GB or lower...looks like the smallest F3 is 500GB?

Does this hold true for any big drive? It looks like the plain-jane 2TB Western Digital also beats the Velociraptor in that test. And for Samsung..is it only the F3 series? There are large capacity Samsung F1s and F2s also. Hmm.

I was going to say a drive that size is out of my price range but $55 bucks for a 500 isn't really going to break the bank. Hmm...

EDIT: Oh, woops. Looks like the F1s are the same capacity aren't as fast. Cool.

Ya. trying to keep it at or below the 400GB per HD. That way I can hit this MB's full potential in RAID.

You can resize them to 400GB, still come out way cheaper per GB than you would with say, a velociraptor

Looks like a good HD. I'm glad they are working out for you!!! But I would have to deactivate 600GB per HD though for my RAID wants..

the cache is relative to disk size, a 1TB drive typically gets 32MB, 2TB drives get 64MB, and 500GB drives get the lowly 16MB, but the 500GB reviews out there are equally impressive, so no worrys

So does that mean the a 1T 32M HD is going to be faster than a 500GB 16M HD
