    According to Silentpcreview, the WD Caviar GP is the best choice for you: http://www.silentpcreview.com/article804-page1.html The terabyte Green Power will find a permanent home in SPCR's home theater test system. They are mad for silence, so if it is good for SPCR, it is good for everyone

  7. Hi all! I have two Caviar RE2 in mirroring, but now i want to change my backup strategy: one drive in my rig, another one in an enclosure (maybe this one: Stardom iTank i302 ) Is it dangerous to mount a Caviar RE2 as a single drive? I ask this because the TLER feature, and i don't want to buy another desktop drive... for now
  8. Good idea. It will be interesting to see if performances are nice with NCQ disabled, please czr

    Best Raid0 Setup For Gaming?

    I agree with Loomy. A Raptor for you, not raid0. Period
  10. Try to use port 3-5, see here for more infos: http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/imsm/sb/cs-025783.htm I had similar issues in the past (in mirroring), it seems this controller is a pain in the ass
  11. Wich version of Intel raid drivers do you have? Latest is 7.6, this one solves most problem similar to yours.
  12. Hi all, i have 2 x WD Caviar RE2, i want to boot from only one of these HD and duplicate the entire system disk (windows, data, boot, EVERYTHING) to another and create a perfect clone of the first, for backup purpose. It is safe to use RE2 in single configuration? I think yes, despite the TLER feature, but i need your opinions my friends Are there any utilities to do this operations under Vista/XP? Any suggestions?
  13. Hi all! I wanna buy this motherboard: http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?l1=3&l2...198&modelmenu=1 Asus had implemented a feature called EZ Backup, a real hardware controller based on Silicon Image 4723 Hardware RAID controller: http://www.siliconimage.com/docs/SiI%20472...Brief_FINAL.pdf http://www.siliconimage.com/news/press/det...ase.aspx?id=320 If i buy this motherboard, i will use the integrated hardware raid controller (in mirroring mode) with two WD Caviar RE2 400GB. Is it a decent controller for a machine up 24h/24 with mid/low duty? I will use it with filesharing and gaming, DVD/dvix rebuilding, so i don't need great performance, but i prefer great stability. And, most important, someone know if is it bootable on the Asus board? The manual isn't clear at this point, at least for me and my bad english
  14. Good, i'll ignore this unallocated partition Thank for the help boys
  15. I had discovered an interesting thing: Acronis report 7844MB unallocated, PQMagic report 7.85MB. I supose Acronis was wrong, so is it a normal space allocated by WinXP?
