2x ocz core v2 vs. 2x velociraptor on adaptec controller Tags: Velociraptor Core Controller Adaptec Storage Product Last response: October 12, 2008 8:22 PM in Storage Share tariag October 11, 2008 7:28:12 PM Hi, I want to buy a new system hdd for xp. I already had a core v1 (on ich9) but it was awful: always freezing! So if i put a pair of core v2 in raid0 on an external controller (adaptec 3405 or 5405) will it be fine? How does it compare to a pair of velociraptors in raid0 (on the same adapter)?

The only well designed MLC on the market right now is the Intel X25-M, which is quite a bit more expensive. SLC is also quite a bit more expensive. tariag October 12, 2008 12:02:54 PM What's about a pair of mtron mobi 3000 ? zenmaster October 12, 2008 12:34:53 PM Get the Vel raptor if you want a fast system drive. Use it for heavy R/W apps. Get the SSD for your R/O Files such as your applications for quick launch. cjl a b G Storage October 12, 2008 8:22:05 PM tariag said:What's about a pair of mtron mobi 3000 ? Those look decent, though the capacity is dinky. If you don't mind how small they are, they would be significantly faster than the Core. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
