WD3200AAKS vs WD3200AAJS

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I have two WD Blue 320GB Drives:

WD3200AAKS (April 2010)
WD3200AAJS (May 2009)

The difference between the two is that the KS has 16MB of cache and the JS has 8MB. I ran HD Tune on both to see which one is faster.




Which one would be the better hard drive to have Win 7 Pro 64? I currently have it in the JS hard drive, but I can use the WD Imaging software to clone it to the KS.

I would keep the JS drive in your system.

Have you thought about RAID0'ing both drives?

It puts no extra strain on the PSU, all it basically does is increase the speed by spanning both drives across one volume.

For instance, 2 500GB's in RAID0 would be seen as a single 1000GB (1TB) Volume from within Windows, and increase the access speed.

So larger cache indeed does help access times?

i wouldn't look at it as a reliable array so if you won't mind reinstalling if something goes wrong go ahead and do it because the speed increase is actually noticeable but locked to a slowest drive.......kind of like if you would SLI a 192SP GTX260 and a 216SP......the overall performance will be higher......but DO NOT put anything important that you couldn't lose on it
