RE: PLEASE HELP!! raptor hard drive raid 8mb cache and 16mb cache
Hi daniel and tasha,
Any RAID array will always work better when it is equipped with identical
drives. It is possible that an array with matching drives of a slower speed
will out-perform an array built of faster drives if those drives are not
matching. You can try, but for best results I would buy 2 identical drives
and use those. By identical, I mean the same manufacturer, size, speed (RPM),
cache and interface (SATA/PATA).
