Potential Raid 0 Setup. *Need Advice*

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello people!

The drives I currently have in my system are acting a bit weird, and instead of having 5 drives that equal 1.4TB I thought I would consolidate some of the drives, and just run two 1TB drives in Raid 0.

These are the drives...

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F1 HD103UJ 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive - OEM (Times Two)


What stripe size? I couldn't find a definite answer anywhere considering it depends on what I do.

What I would be doing - Primarily gaming, some transferring of files over a LAN, some torrenting.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

Yeah I saw a few different stripe sizes, some being 64K on up to around 2MB.

Not sure which one to use

Should add that I'll be playing a lot of music as well
