What's the problem with hitachi? I have them in RAID 0, fast, and my intake fan blows right over them so they stay cool.

Opened it up today, early X-mas present. My dad broke down and bought me another, so I'll be having 240 GB of RAID0 sweetness! Some pictures, notice how this hard drive does NOT use the standard Molex connection.

Yeah, seeing as how this is my first foray into RAID, does anyone have any guides/pointers to setting up raid?

Careful, NCQ and 3.0 gb/s are not part of the Sata2 standard. Yes, most may have 3.0 gb/s or NCQ,but it is NOT a Sata2 designation. I read a heated clarification of this
Edit: grr, not sure what happened,but read the below post for the link.

Let me look for it and I'll edit this post with a link.

Edit: This isn't the article I read, but this also states that NCQ and 3.0 gb/s are not part of the Sata2 standard. Btw, it also is a nice review of Sata2 hard drives.

Thanks Ste, I think he did that on an Nforce4, which is what I'll be doing it on. That probably is going to prove very useful. Thanks
