Sata jumper settings in RAID & w/out

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay, I've got two WD740 (Raptor 74gb 10k rpms). Its my first time messing with SATA, RAID, and jumper settings on SATA HDs.

First off, I know how to setup RAID, cause I researched the hell out of it. But the jumper setting descriptions are really vague at alot of websites, or aren't clear enough.

If I setup my SATA with RAID (doesn't matter, 0 for example I guess), where should I have my jumper set at. I don't even know what they mean by Speed Spectrum Clocking. They explain everything else alright. Like the Opt 1 jumper( for second gen SATA HDs), they never really explain the Opt 2 jumper setting. Power up in Standby jumper is sorta useless sounding to me, I'd still like to know what it is in details. Could someone explain this to me?

second to last the RAID and without RAID. How should I have the jumper set?

Lastly, are my HDs SATA - II or SATA - I. I assumed SATA - I. I jus don't remember it listed as SATA II.

Thank for the help everybody

Welcome to the Forum...

You need to post your system specs so we can see what else you are running.
Your drives are SATA I so there SPread Spectrum will not help these drives here.

There should be no jumpers on a SATA HDD as each HDD has a dedictaed channel, only the controller knows of master and secondary but that is not a settable item.

proc:AMD Athlon XP 2700+ (Thoroughbred) = running at 2.17Ghz
mobo:MSI KT400 (model-7021)
ram:2x512MB=1gb 333MHz
G-card: GeForce FX 5500
S-card:Creative SB LIVE! Value
D-drive:Sony DVD RW DW-D26A (I made a mistake, I should've went NEC!!)
HDs: 1)300gb 7200rpm 16MB cache
2)60gb 5400rpm ??
3)40gb 5400rpm ??
4)20gb 7200rpm ??
5)8gb 7200rpm ??
6)8gb 5400rpm ?? (note all these are connected!)

I'm about to add those two 74 gb of course. Once I do, I will back up everything unto my 300 gb, I haven't formated that one yet. then I will remove all my drives and give them to good friends of mine or sell them on ebay more than likely. Too many HDs generate heat, and noticing SATA generates plenty of that, so I'm having a friend who is very inventive build me custom made fans for my 60gb. He needs massive storage space badly, eh hehehe. I hope nobody really cares about network cards ;p
as a matter of fact my stuff is not even low end material, it's pretty out dated from what my nerd buddies tell me. LOL! But whatever, it works and I'm slowly making it powerful. I also need to learn my tech stuff, so I decided to join a forum that seems active, and I could find this one. It's a pretty nice forum, got cool peoplez. I hope I can get help and I also hope I can help back later on. Thanks. As for my SATA deal, can someone help me with jumper details now?
