RAID 0 Question Tags: Hard Drives NAS / RAID Wd Raptor Cache Storage Last response: April 24, 2008 9:52 PM in Storage Share nbundy April 24, 2008 9:19:42 PM Hello, I have an older 8mb cache WD Raptor 74gb hard drive and have just purchased another WD Raptor 74gb drive but this one is the newer model with 16mb cache. I was wondering if I would have any issues putting these 2 drives in RAID 0.

My gut tells me it'll work just fine, but I really think you should wait for a second (and third) opinion.
