That is hilarious! Yes, overclock the HDD from 7200 to 10k, just like the Raptors, only cheaper! Don't waste your money on that stock 10k, just take out the ground wire from your molex connector and add an additional 12v! Should get you to 10k, easy!
bleh, dident mean overclocking, meant a disk drive thats FAST XD
Most 7200rpm drives perform about the same... 10k drives are a bit faster, particularly the new WD velociraptor. SSD's are the fastest, but very pricey. Go to storagereview.com http://www.storagereview.com/php/benchmark/bench_sort.php and pick your workload for a good comparison. Synthetic benchmarks like hdtach do not tell a realistic story.
Yeah I want to overclock my monitor, can I do that too? haha Or wait how about my DVD drive? I want to overclock my cpu hsf as well, is that possible?
Call me crazy but when I first read that subject line that is actually what I was thinking haha.
Too bad none of those are possible. But yeah, interesting concept or idea.
If speed is of utmost importance, go for a 10K RPM WD Raptor/VelociRaptor. Otherwise, if you're interested in the 500GB-750GB range (like the one you linked to above), then you've already pointed out a good choice.
