Interesting you chose a review done in 2007, based off of year 2000 architecture. Not saying it wrong.. just that their are arch changes between them
Also does not deal with high IOPS perf drives like the vraps.
We also made a nice discovery with regard to drive power supply: we first attached multiple drives to a single power rail of the power supply used. This seemed to work well, as the spinup typically draws enough power to cause trouble and we didn’t encounter problems. However, single drives dropped out of the RAID array during the benchmarks once in a while.
A single HDD can draw up to 25W. A single peripheral rail is rated to what 50W? Higher gauge wire of course changes that
Just shows how stupid THG is an example.
I appreciate your input beers
You da man.
