Ultra SCSI Hard Drive question?


Recommended Posts

I found a 74 gB HDD (10k rpm), Seagate Cheetah for like only 40 bucks

will these types of drives work with the mobo in my sig (or any nf4 mobo)

 

if it will it should have some pretty good performance for the price, dont ya think?

 

thanks all,

SkY

To run a scsi drive like that it would require that you add a scsi controller. I run several servers and do a lot of playing with scsi and tried some in desktop setups but unless your ready to run four or five drives and ready to spend 500 - 600 for a good scsi controller you won't see much improvement if any over a raid 0 setup using SATA. Also to run scsi on my servers and get any speed I had to go with 64 bit controllers and they require 64 bit pci slots which this board does not have.
