ok, looks like i did same mistake as OP, tho i have 2xWD5000AADS in raid0 and in many games i have that 0,5-1s hangups which are really annoying...
found also some WD fix to prevent the head from parking (http://support.wdc.com/product/downl...id=609&sid=113) but it is actually not working on green drives...
however, i have 4kb stripe and tbh i thought that it will be enough for everything to not stop the drive anytime (but i guess the 32mb cache is making the diffrence)

Green drives are good enough for movies and games ON THERE OWN.

There 15ms+ access times and average write times make them not so good for OS.
post #16 of 16
hmm, this way u say... so what do u propose?
will for example 40gb SSD work ok for OS and having the games data on the 2xgreen raid?
or taking smth like velociraptor or black wd
