what would you do with x79 asrock extreme11...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Alright so im trying to figure out how I would like to configure my storage on my epic desk build that is in the works. This is what I have to work with in terms of ports on my motherboard.

2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by Intel X79, support RAID (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 10 and Intel Rapid Storage 3.0)
8 x SAS2/SATA3 6.0 Gb/s connectors by LSI SAS2308 PCIe 3.0 controller, support RAID (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1E and RAID 10)
4 x SATA2 3.0 Gb/s connectors, support RAID (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 10 and Intel Rapid Storage 3.0)

I currently have a 128GB intel 520 drive and 4xseagate 7200rpm 64mb cache 3TB drives. I was thinking about doing 8x3TB drives in the lsi ports and doing raid for redundancy and 12TB partition (seeing as I dont trust seagate after having 5 drives DOA in two shipments) along with a dual ssd raid with my intel ports. However, after some thought now kind if want to do raid0 with more than 2 ssds for pure speed advantages. Lets say hypothetically I have 8 128gb ssds in raid0, is there any way to restore the the data with a drive failure with a hdd for backup purposes? I realize it couldnt update real time as it would horribly affect the sp3ed, but is there any method with manual backups or would I just need to reinstall from the backup with a failure?

If I were to di raid0 for speed what drives would you guys recommend? Ill be honest I have researched drives but there are so many that it is a little hard to keep track of price, performance, and reliability of all the different drives. I want awesome performance as well as large storage (1TB or more). I just saw a deal of 295 dollars for samsung 840 500GB. 2000GB in raid0 would probably be amazing although I saw that their speed is a bit disappointing. Do you guys think that raid0 would make the speed still blazing fast or do you think I would be disappointed in the speed?

I just realized that gigabyte is now in the ssd game!!! Gigabyte research begin. I have always loved gigabyte for their awesome ram as well as their customer service. I have never seen a negative commrnt on newegg go unanswered and most of the negatives are stupid people trying to mix and match ram and such.

Edit: I cant find anything about these gigabyte drives anywhere... anybody know of any reviews as google cant even find the newegg listings...

Im dumb... I dont know why I kept typing gigabyte instead of g.skill...

hey man, i think you should RAID0 840 pro 256GB and a raid 10 of 4 mechanical drives. raid 0 provides the bandwidth of 2 ssd's combined (more like 90-95% of the combined theoretical speed) but its kinda unreliable; one drive fails you try to commit suicide to rescue your old stuff. but with raid 10, you combine 2 out of the 4 for speed and the other 2 for mirrored writing, so you have the combined speed of 2 and also a reliable backup of whatever you do. basically, RAID0 for boot drives and 4x1/2TB Caviar Red/Black for RAID10 for storage.
