  • Help With Raid...

    Well since i asked a question in one thread and it was broken into a different one, i thought this would be okay...

    This weekend im going to be reformatting my hardrives... Ive got my reasons, and well i was going to try to get my hdds in raid config...


    What do i need, what versions should i get, and how would i read up on it before i do something stupid...


    2 40gig maxtor 7200 rpm hdds...
    (My third is going into a external case -Tnx ImaWuss-)

    And A fresh install/reinstall of Microcrap...

    Well, to begin with, if you're going to create a RAID array, then you're going to need a RAID controler card....

    Do you have one?

        koutech silicon image and a promise

        the promise is a little more stable, the koutech is the fastest card I have ever seen.... when I first benched it with 2 120 wd se's, it beat out a 2x 10000 scsi 160 raid 0 by almost double in sandra 2003..... I ran it 4 times and the results never got within fighting distance...... it does tend to by a hair flaky though... I never lost data, but I crashed..........come to think of it... I bet that was the start of my radeon 9700pro dying.......so, I think the flakyness might not be an issue.......
