Different VelociRaptor versions in RAID0


#1

I had two VelociRaptors in RAID0 and one of them failed.  I RMA’d it and got a replacement from WD.  The replacement was a different version/firmware than the other drive.  Will this cause an issue in RAID0?

New Drive:

WD3000HLFS-01G6U1

Other Drive in RAID:

WD3000GLFS-01F8U0

Probably not, I’ve used drives from different manufactures and it’s been working alright. As long as the drives got the same specs it shouldn’t cause any problems.

Thanks for the reply.  I received the replacement drive and setup my RAID and it is working great, no issues at all.  Performance is excellent.  I’ve attached an ATTO benchmark for reference.  This is for two 300gb VelociRaptors in RAID0 on an intel ICH10R controller.
