Can you RAID different SSDs? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
hello Stildawn or anybody else that has this kind of question,please you need to try RAID.We are here to help you do that,we don't have right to stop you.
Its like that story ,with girl from your neighborhood,I was with here and I didn't like here.Now I am telling you that you cant love here,I don't have that right ,maybe you are meant for each other.
People that tried RAID ,now saying to you that you don't need it.Let them alone,life is short and we need to try everything we have possibility to try because we will regret if we don't.Maybe you will use RAID only short period of time ,MAYBE you will love it and then run to buy two new same SSD.
Watercooling is completely useless ,you cant see benefit without benchmark(just like with RAID)but I would always try it(if I had extra money) ,its one hell of a journey ,I believe.
Modding ,whats the point,crossfire ,SLI, full of bugs and stuttering ,but isn't that the point of everything ,TO PLAY WITH OUR TOYS.
Some people have that ugly line to stop people to be different,to try something new , if we listen to them ,then we would never have that beautiful thing called PC.

P.S.If you use your pc for work then don't play with it.But if you use it for work then you probably already hate it..

Thanks for all the responses guys.

I haven't decided if I will pick the drive up yet, its just super cheap at the moment and seems to have good reviews despite being a random brand.

I think I'll try it, but yeah my further research leads me to similar conclusions as you guys, would probably be better to use my F120 as OS and the new one as a games drive.

@nleksan

You sound like you know your stuff. I might be hitting you up in the future if I could still track you down, as I plan a massive server/computer related endeavour in our new house we hope to start building in 2 years time, and I could use expert advice haha.

See under my name where is says "Posts"?

That is a pretty good indication that you won't have trouble finding me wink.gif

And I like to think that I know a fair bit, but I also realize that I actually know very little. Always continue learning, and always be receptive to new information or opinions, even if the opinion is baseless it is still valuable (by investigation of what's presented in an opinion, one is more often than notlead to the discovery of actual fact).


Now, no one is saying "argh never RAID or you will become a corporeal vessel for the avenging soul of the dark Lord Cthulu". The people who have ACTUAL experience with REAL life use of RAID in multiple scenarios, know that RAID (0 in particular) is a very high risk thing, and one that has its benefits, but they areCCOMPLETELY DEPENDENT UPON the usage scenario. General home computer use, which is a single person using the PC, has an EXTREMELY SMALL number ofsuch scena rios in which the benefits outweigh the risks. Audio, video, and photography work at a high level qualifies. Gaming, office work, and Internet use absolutely do not.

Presenting the laissez-faire attitude of que sera sera in regards to this is not a noble thing, and it doesn't help anyone in fact it very well couldl ead to significant fallout when someone who doesn't have experience with the subject is not informed of the SIGNIFICANT risk involved, but hey its not your fault right? What happens when someone follows your advice and loses their family photos, or a doctoral dissertation, or whatever? Are you going tohelp them, or are yyou going to sit back and say "it's not my fault the hard drive failed, you should have known the risks", after clearly insinuating that information of those risks is an affront to free will?

I am here because I learn new things constantly, and at the same time I believe that my knowledge or experience has little value unless it is used to help others. This is the same attitude of a lot of well respected members, and consequently the reason OCN is the extremely highly regarded place it is. Telling people that they should just learn for themselves, and offering nothing but criticism of other, highly informed posters, while dismissing the idea that sometimes, you are not right and could learn fromothers, is eexactly the opposite of the right attitude to have. It is akin to nothing more than telling someone who disagrees with you that they need to keep an open mind, all the while arguing with nothing but flawed opinion. It benefits no one, and shows ignorance of the fact that hundreds ofppeople with no way to know otherwise may well likely read such posts with disastrous results.
