Greens are greet for storage, and not too slow either (~80MB/s) but the black / F3 drives do have a lot better small read / write speeds and seek times, although no where as fast compared to SSDs.

Thanks for the info! I have 20 ap-15s to keep everything cool, and for the drives, I got this to keep them cool.

Since its going to be mounted internally (where there will be a fair amount of airflow anyways), I took off the front cover and also replaced the fan with an ap-15.

Probably the only thing that will be going on the hhd will be videos and music so I am sure a green would do just fine. But I have a tendancy to overkill things by a little bit. For example, the desk I am building for the computer (which will be cooled by 4x RX480s) to go in will be strong enough to support the weight of at least 4 people dancing/jumping on the top. Overkilled by just a little bit...

The revodrive 3 x2 max iops (4 sandforce controlers), is really good. They annouce 240kiops, I got 200k with 4k 64thd. I also got 1500MB/s read speed, but who need this ?
Anyway I see 2 problems with this drive :
-1 pcie slot used
- the price
