    Intel X25-M

    Don't remember where I read this but in one test the ICHR10 controller is a bottleneck for this drive as compared to a true raid card. Might be in this thread: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=202849
  2. I'm looking to add another fast HD to my gaming rig and I was wondering if there was another HD out that loads games faster than my 74GB raptor? Thanx
  3. Other than solid state drives, which I have no idea why they don't market these to the pc enthusiast, is there anything rumored to come after the western digital raptor in terms of speed? This is a really fast HD but the pc will always be bottlenecked unless someone comes out with something faster.

    Western Digital Raptor Wd740gd

    This Raptor is insane fast! Loads Doom3 levels ~30sec! Can't tell how noisy it is though over the 92mm Tornado cooling off the OC'd FX-53 but it is cool to touch.
  5. No. You would think it would considering it has 4 SATA connectors and a crap load of RAID functions.
  6. I have 2 hard drive activity lights on the front of my case and I have 2 SATA hard drives (74GB Raptor/250GB WD Caviar). Can you hook up the LED light to a jumper on the back of the hard drive? On my mobo I only have 1 IEDE hd activity jumper. Will it work with SATA drives? Thanx
  7. Who sells Silicon Image cards? Didn't see any on newegg or hypermicro. Thanx
  8. I need a PCI card for a 36GB Raptor for my Intel BX mobo. Any recommendations? Thanx, Rob
  9. I'll be looking forward to SR's review of 74GB Raptors in RAID 0 then. Thanx.
  10. http://www.gamepc.com/labs/view_content.as...lcompare&page=7 It would seem that the Intel ICH5R chipset put up really good numbers!
  11. Thanx! http://www.gamepc.com/labs/view_content.as...lcompare&page=6
  12. Well? Anyone know of any benchmarks using 2 new Raptors in RAID 0 with the intel chipset? Thanx, Rob
  13. So what year does the retail version come out so we can see what it can do in the real world?
  14. It's the newest and fastest 10K rpm SATA HD So why isn't it in the leader board yet? They are being sold so whats the story?
  15. I was looking at some listed prices for the Hitachi HD and some were listed as OEM. What's the difference? I also noticed that when I was looking at an Intel mobo the OEM was cheaper than the retail but the stats were the same. What's the story? Thanx
