F3 1tb question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
How many platters do these have and how big is each one?

Going to setup mine in raid 0 and want to experiment with the best size vs. Speed. Anyone have a recommendation?

I think it's two 512GB platters. Don't quote me on that though.

Ok searched for a review that said 2 500gb platters

Now would it be best to make each hard drive 500gb or 465gb like windows will see it ?

465 GB is the max capacity of ea.

This is why.

1k = 2^10 = 1,024
1M = 2^20 = 1,048,576
*1G = 2^30 = 1,073,741,824

Manufacturer calls it: 500,000,000,000 divided by 1,000,000,000 = 500Gb
Windows calls it: 500,000,000,000 divided by 1,073,741,824 = 465.66Gb
