Ok ok, its gonna be:
4 Velociraptors in RAID0 for windows/linux/games
3 RE2 500GB in RAID5 for storage
1 old Caviar for my Hackintosh OS
I know the scorpio seems out of place.... Its actually going to be used for a mini itx system that I'm going to mount inside the same case for when I just want to surf the web or something so I don't have to hear a single fan. And believe me when I say I'm gonna need about 900GB for the system volume and about 650GB for storage. Plus of course the extra space to actually use.
Now, about the PSU....like I said earlier the load is going to be pretty small, probably going to be 5v heavy, AND its going to run 24/7. All I want is peace of mind that its not going to burn down my house in my sleep after 3 months. Know what I mean? lol. That earthwatts one has been bugging me all this time too.
What sucks (well, maybe not so much) is that I just got the chance to get one of two PSUs for free. A used Antec Truepower 2
or a new Enermax SFX
. Would either one of these be reliable enough to stick in my closet for at least 3 years or is it worth buying a different PSU?
