Any jumpers for WD HD's?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I know that on some Seagate HD's you have to remove the jumper to get the full 3.0GB/s speed. Is there any such mechanism with the WD drives? I have 4 of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136073 and wanted to know before I put them in a RAID0+1 array.

No, they don't have a jumper (I have the same drives). Yes, some Barracudas 7200.10 have the jumper in so its limited to SATA 150 (happened to me)...
