24X7 Usage Hard drive (High Write workLoad)
Posted 19 March 2013 - 04:42 AM
I want to add another Internal Hard drive which Should run 24X7 as I am a Heavy Torrent downloader...So my PC is ON Like forever , Downloading Various stuffs at high speed.
So I am Looking For Hard drive Which Can easily run 24X7 ( without noise)...bearing 24X7 write Load.
Please Specify the Product name with their official link page.
Adding to this, I have found Some hard drive based on 24X7 Usage.those are :-;
1)Seagate SV35 Series Hard Drive
3)Seagate Enterprise Value HDD / Seagate Constellation® CS
4)Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD / Seagate Constellation® ES.3
Of the above 6, I found (1)Seagate Sv35 best one followed by (2)WD RE4
Please help me know that which one is the best according to my needs..ie high workload, 24X7 read & write Hard drive
If there is another hard disk, you think is best for torrents 24X7 usage.Please specify...
I think SSD are not made for high write loads...they can read faster...but their life is dependent on Write workloads...higher the write workload..lower will be their lifetime...Hence SSD are out of question
But what about SSHD(Solid state Hybrid drives)...are they good, abviously they boot faster than above mentioned six 7200rpm drives but i am looking for 24X7 high write & read work loads...are they capable enough to bear high write workloads unlike SSD
Thanks in advance
Also Can Sata 3Gbps motherboard Supports Sata 6Gbps Hard drive ....??

And no need to disable power saving: if you're download the HDD won't get a rest for several minutes, so it will stay up. If you're not downloading.. well, no need to keep it spinning.

Personally I use Samsung F2 EcoGreen drives, because they're low power and quiet. However what you choose partly depends on whether you want to use one single drive for both booting your system and torrenting, or two separate drives, which I would highly recommend.

And he said "I want to add another drive", so I think it's safe to assume it will be a dedicated torrent drive.

Buy whatever's cheapest. Unless you're pulling down better than a 100mbit link continuously, you're not going to tax any modern harddisk, and even 100mbit is slow enough that fragmentation is not going to significantly affect performance.
Now if you're on a gigabit link I stand corrected, but on a gigE link you're probably going to need at least a two-disk RAID0 to keep up comfortably as you'd be rather close to saturating a single disk.

Your BT client will manage how and when the data is written to disk. Unless you have gigabit internet, the drive won't be constantly writing as you might think.
Any drive rated for enterprise/NAS will do.
I would never put data that I don't want to lose on a single drive [without backups].
