While you're right about the above poster, the V1 model of my sig rig mobo has a SAS controller.

The hype is that no mechanical drive can simultaneously access 3k different files.

Mechanical HD's have seek time.... SSDs do not. Their access is nearly instant. So while a hd is still using precious ms trying to FIND data, the SSD not only found & read it, already.. it's probably done that to 50 more files.... all the while the hd is still trying to access info.

Of coarse.. this is all basic stuff & you would know & understand if u read anything about ssd's...!

Hey, I love my vraptors. But they're showing their age. No real reason to upgrade though (as of yet).

Last time I checked 4 HDD in RAID was PDQ! (Pretty darn quick!)

Even 2 X 1 TB in RAID is only $120, so why go SSD at all?

I don't see all the hype over SSD, I have one and it's not all that, really it's not...
Failure rate is also much higher on 4 raid0 drives plus power and heat of 4 drives vs 1 ssd.

Actually Highpont rocketraid adapter 1220 does this. It allow you to put a SSD and a Mechanical hdd together and cache to the SSD. There are 2 modes safe and fast. The fast feature keeps certain programs on the ssd to speed thing up it kind of Raid0. If the SSD or the Mechanical drive fails all data is loss. The safe mode copys certain programs to the SSD but maintains them on the Mechanical. The safe modes allows you to swap out the SSD without having to restore any files. Now as SSDs improve you can just replace the ssd with a faster one.

If they went to 15K drives i'd be interested in trying one out or if they became insanely cheap.

Foxconn Bloodrage has SAS controller
That was one helluva board.
