ps: I have a test tomorrow and really need to get my pc up and running asap. So thx for looking.
Hey, I never did understand how RAID technology works that well (Like jmicron vs intel etc)
But I have two Seagate 320GB Hard Drives currently connected to the Asus EZ_RAID1 and EZ_RAID2 , and I just bought a WesternDigital 400GB hard drive.
I have them setup to add the space together.
I'm trying to hook up the 400gb hard drive, but it takes over my current hard drives when i plug it in, and can't boot vista. I need to hook it up to transfer all of my backup files from my 320's as I'm going to re-format.
I have an Asus P5W DH Deluxe Motherboard, but there's so many different SATA connections, I don't know what to use to get the best results?
Theres a Intel SATA1, SATA3, SATA4
Then a Jmicron SATA_RAID1
Then the Asus EX_RAID1&2 (Which I have my two 320gb's on right now).
I want the fastest possible connection, but still have a lot of hard disk space. I was thinking (combine the 320gb hard drives as a raid1 and make it faster?) Does that make sense?
Can anyone advise me of where/how to hook everything up? I don't know which SATA's to use, or what they're for.
After reading, I take it jmicron isn't all that better than Intel... so does anyone know why they include it? Any benefits?
So I'm gong to use the Intel ones. But... how do I hook it up to get the best performance? Will combining my 320's (not adding more space, i think that's RAID1?), really provide that much difference of a performance?
