Advice on 1500rpm SCSI harddrives

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
EDIT: title is meant to say 15000rpm

hi all

i need some advice on some HP 36.4GB 15000rpm SCSI hard drives that i have just acquired for free from my buddies company as he is merging with a another company and they were chucking out all there stuff (FTW)

anyway i would like to set up 2 or maybe 4 of these in RAID 0 on my sig rig just for poops and giggles to see what the speed is like and i was wondering are they going to work on a SCSI to sata adaptor cable with an on board raid controller?

Also i have never used a 15000rpm hard drive before so i was wondering are the drives really noisy?

Do they need heat sinking or any other type of additional cooling? they will be sitting in a cm storm scout case with a 120mm fan mere mm's away from the drivesr

thanks in advance

What's the model number? 10 year old drives will be slow, new ones just manufactured 6 months ago will be fast.

As for the scsi to sata cable, can you link it? There are parallel scsi to sata adapters, but what you really want is a scsi card. They are cheap. Make sure you pick up the right cable since there are 100000000 different ones.
