2TB WD Green - In a Synology enclosure which backs up the RAID each night
2TB WD Green
I also have a available:
1 x Intel 480GB 520 Series SSD
1 x SanDisk 480GB Extreme SSD
Now, I'm getting a little boggled as to what would be the most efficient options.
Ideally I'd like to keep the 3TB RAID as it is due to it having a lot of current projects on. Could I use one of the SSDs as an SSD cache for the RAID or does the fact it's a RAID mess with that feature?
Would I use one of the SSD's as my boot, if so which one would you advise?
Would it also maybe be worth raiding the SSD's and using them as a scratch disk for photoshop/after effects and to render projects to?
In case this effects any random bandwidth issues I might not be aware of, The specs of the new build are -
Case: Coolermaster HAF X
Mobo: Asus P9X79 Pro
Processor : Intel Core i7 3930K @ 4.6ghz
Ram: 32GB (4x8GB) Corsair Platinum, 1866MHz
PCI: 2x GTX670
basically its the setup I use. You might try running with and without a scratch drive and checking to see how it affects your rendering. You might be able to move an ssd to be your OS drive and add the f3 to the raid.
