2nd Raid0 on an Ultra D, Yellow and Black---thanks Happy!!

Recommended Posts

Thanks Happy Games for the hard to find yellow Sata cables----I finally got around to adding a 2nd RAID0 to my Yellow and Black themed DFI rig.

 

Turned out pretty good and so easy to set up once I got everything installed...Just went into the Raid Bios and added and additional RAID0 array with the two new drives.

 

Booted up-----use Computer Management under Administrative Tools to initialize then format the new array----easy sneezy.....

 

Got the two drives together for less than $100 so it added an additional 320 gigs of storage to this machine----in a fast RAID0 array.

 

Yellow cover was made from cut glued, bondoed, sanded and painted plexi---cover is held on by industrial grade velcro. Drive cage was an abandoned Lian Li aluminum drive cage that I cut and modded.

 

Again----thanks Happy Games!!!---Here's some pics:

38 to 40C Idle

44-48 Load

 

On a fair overclock of a 4800 X2

 

If I adjust the fan speeds higher via the fan controller on the front I can go a shade cooler but I have to live with added noise.....

 

If you are going to use air (and I stick with air because I just don't want to fuss with the more efficient water cooling).....

 

I am convinced that side flow air is the way to go in a heavily used system using lots of juice and generating a lot of heat.

 

And I've experimented with all kinds of different air flow paths-----through the front at the the 5 1/4 drive bays, through the front low (traditional) with heavy duty 120 fans, coming from the rear low----then up....

 

You name it, I've tried it-----my best results have been shortest path to the hot spots with direct air from outside the case (side flow)....

 

Anyway----your results may vary----but that's what works best for me....good luck!

He sent you those quite some time ago. :)

 

Nice work.

 

Yes-----I have been horribly busy lately----got involved with coaching high school baseball and it has eaten up most of my experimental/modding time.

 

Thanks for looking.

 

Merry Christmas!
