I currently have three 7K1000.Cs in RAID 0 (128k stripe and cluster size, using a 2TB exFAT partition aligned/offset 384k) serving as my video recording array. Sequential write speeds are about 400MB/s, which is way more than FRAPS needs, but if I record completely uncompressed video with PlayClaw, the speed becomes necessary.

The most important thing is to make sure that nothing is using the FRAPS drive, or array, at the same time you are recording.
Thanks for the info where do you install fraps to your recording drive or windows?
