  1. I had 4x Seagate 7200.8 SATA 150 8mb but 1 was defective and was exhanged. I asked for a drive exactly the same but they sendt med a 7200.9 ATA 300 16mb. How will it effect my RAID 5 ? Its running on a LSI MegaRAID SATA-300-x8 128mb PCI-X

    Difrent drives in raid?

    Is that a typo? Did you get an ATA or a SATA? If ATA, you won't be able to plug it in. Yeah its a SATA 300. Mad hatter Ill try and see how it goes.

    Allright thanks ill plug it right in then
  4. Yes here in denmark the new version of the 74gb with 16mb has allready come but is also sold out allready so proberly not in very big numbers. Does any1 know how it preforms? it looks really nice on the paper.
  5. I have been running a RAID 5 setup on my mainboard Abit AL8, But it was really slow so i was wondering if i should buy a raid controller and then its all good? The drives are 4x Seagate Barracuda 7200.8 (ST3400832AS) 400 GB Hard Drive SATA. I used a 80gb 7200 for system drive. Ill also like to add 2 more drives for heavy load stuff (2x200) in a RAID 0 i thought it might asswell be SATA II with NCQ The mainboard only have PCI-E 1x and PCI. What will be the best setup? the 2 raids on a new raid controller and the system disc on the main board? The main board has SATA II controller. And i need help finding a good controller for all this. I what to be able to add drives the an array without deleting the whole array first. not sure how much if any memory is needed on the controller. And what about the 2x200gb drives, any thoughts?
  6. I dont know. I run my discs in single mode atm but i have not testet the speeds. There is also a pci-e 4x version of that card HighPoint RocketRAID 2320 I could maby change my mobo with 1 with a PCI-E 4x or a PCI-X port.
  7. i only have PCI and PCI-E 1x on my MB I can offcourse buy a new mainboard but does it really make that big of a difrence?
  8. I looked around after a raid controller and so far i found this: What do you guys think?
  9. Any reason not to take the cheaper Western Digital Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250 GB / 7200 rpm / 16 MB / Serial ATA II / 8.9 ms
  10. 2x250 will be fine too np about that. But what about the setup and a raid controller?
