Won't matter, as the 500GB WD Black's (the ones Yoko bought) are slower. The 1TB drives are almost as fast as the F3's, and beat them significantly with access times. So your results really won't matter in this thread.
It certainly wouldn't hurt to bench them though

If you're going for an OS drive, the WD Black 1TB and bigger drives in RAID0 are the fastest for OS / Games use. The F3's are ALMOST as fast for that purpose, but rape with storage use because of their higher read / write speeds.
The F3 1TB's are the best bang per buck. But if you want the best RAID0 you can get for OS / Games use, get the WD Black 1TB or bigger drives.
