a friend of mine bought yesterday two of these hard disks. We wanted to make a stripped array of 2TB.
The system is based on an Asus MB for Intel Core i7 (X58/ICH10R) and the operating system is WinXP 32bit.
It will be used for video editing.
The first thing to do, was to set a jumper at pins 7-8 as instructed at the label.
The drives were detected instantly with no problems and then an array was created within the “Intel Rapid Strorage Technology” console.
While copying video content, about 10GB, the array failed…
Innumerous try outs of copying, editing, playing, streaming video content from this array,
indicates that it is not capable of constant output rate.
The actual speed has no difference neither if the HDDs are stripped or “stand alone”.
Has anyone of you used these drives in a stripped array?
