That takes 4 drives minimum...

Well if he has an SSD on the way, it will be plenty fast, no need for a RAID 0 config for the HDDs really...just use it as storage drives which is what Im guessing u were gonna do. I wouldn't bother RAIDing it.

not going to run raid... not yet anyways.... i don't want to reformat! ( man my ssd got sent back to Newegg ) USPS sucks..... Newegg well over night it UPS when they get it back! what a joke and a pain in the butt......
ok look at it like this if you can. in boxing we have to take a hit to give one, and 75% of the punch comes from our footing. if our footing is off and if hit we can get knocked down ( looks like a good hit ( right ), but it really was the footing ) my point is always stand strong and learn to move, and see the sings! life can hit us with weak PUNCHES and if our footing is good no weak butt punches can hurt...

Don't bother with RAID 0. If anything, do RAID 1 since you don't want to lose your data. Just use the software RAID 1 built into Windows...just make sure you don't mirror the wrong drive. :lol:




copy that bro thanks

You can go with a RAID 0 setup... as long as you have some sort of backup to another drive.

RAID 0 is awesome if you looking to get a speedier mechanical setup going dude. Posted Image

if you have an SSD as your OS drive, raid is a waste of time, just use them for storage

one for games, one for videos and downloads

if you like to download lots of crap, set it ti download on the drive you use the least so you can run your computer with out any hickups while it just downloads in it's own little world

Hello Lab Rat 2 and all,

  I want to make the move to Raid and gathering info from my manual and posts I'm learning towards RAID 0 for the performance. One post stated RAID 0 with 2 HDD's would be the fastest and 3 HDD's would be very fast. What I'm thinking is 3 1T drives and 2T or 3T external HDD backed up often. I could start a new thread but thinking along the same lines as towhog66.

  Would 3 HDD's be that favorable or or just use 2 and the 3rd 1T HDD for the backup?

 

  If anyone remembers my FX9590 looks to have a pin missing. So I'm still up in the air with that.

What are your goals, and what HDDs do you have available?

Tolerance is a sign of weakness.

Hey, at least it appears that Skoville used the "search" function  :)

 

That's more than we get out of a lot of folks  :)
