So I currently have a WD Caviar Blue 500GB drive (16mb cahce, 7200 rpm, 3gb/s interface)
but I just received an RMA WD20EARS which is a 2TB drive caviar Green (64mb cache, ?rpm, 3gb/s interface)
Now I'm wondering what would be the most optimal set-up for my computer...should I run the OS from the new drive because it's bigger and bigger cache? I know the caviar green's are energy efficient so they don't really tell you the rpm, but it's supposedly supposed to be as fast as 7200 rpm, or does the cache improvement trump the rest of the specs anyway?
I have been getting annoyed at long load times for starcraft 2...i've added some ram, upgraded my vid card so now my current configuration (without new hdd) has my Primary hard disk as the lowest score for the Windows Experience Index (at 5.8)... I'm hoping this might be able to help...
I've heard the blues are faster than green's, but I wasn't sure if the fact that it's an old blue (like from 4 years ago) that a bigger and newer drive could be better (wasn't sure if the bigger cache may make it better?)
So if that's not the case, then it sounds like everyone thinks putting my Windows7 onto the 500GB Blue drive, and using the 2TB green drive for storage.
In terms of what JackNaylorPE said....how do I go about doing all that... sounds complicated. Anywhere I can find a step by step how to?
And does that actually work?
