hi guyz, just wanted to know if there would be any complications when using a 3 Gb/s Seagate Baracuda & 6 Gb/s WD caviar Blue drive in RAID 0 config. I have a X79A-GD65(8D) with intel i7 3820 & 16Gb Corsair Vengiance DDR3 1600. How would this config affect performance? both drives are connected to the 6Gb/s intel controlled ports.
BTW, had such a battle to finally get the board to detect the 6 intel SATA ports...took flashing back & forth several times and reinstalling several drivers before I could get the 2 X intel 6GB/s ports to detect the drives & be able to set up the raid array...
what a shlep! Thanks Intel
Anywho, please let me know if the raid setup would be fine or potentially dangerous XD
cool, i'm aware of that . Both drives are 500 GB , just the read/write speed that varies... they are connected to SATA ports 1 & 2 (6Gb/s ports) so in other words, they will only perform at 3 Gb/s right? But there shouldn't be any other isseus?
