Re: Anyone running SSD's yet?

I have no confidence that their controller can actually do lossless compression [of every kind of file] to factor of 10 to 20:1 at 100-200Mb/s
- which is basically what they are claiming.

If what you are really after is performance for games or photo shop or whatever then you are better off setting up a system with a RAM drive.

The 'loop hole' type warranty suggests they don't have a lot of confidence in that design.

I don't either.

This is another outright lie.

Re: Question about 85c caps vs. 105c caps

A heatsink's job is to 'sink' (carry away) from the chip underneath it.
If the chip underneath it is hot then the heatsink should be hot.

If the chip is hot and the heatsink isn't then you need...

Re: Anyone running SSD's yet?

If one should last a decade it will spend roughly the last 8 years of it at around 33-70MB/s.
Many worse than and none better than a good SATA disc drive.

Not even a year yet.

At the most they are 15 months old. (Not "a few years".)

Re: SATA 300/600 drives on a 150 storage controller

In a std PCI 32-bit slot you are limited to like 133MB/s on the BUS anyway [and that's shared] so there is no point in using RAID 0 or 10.

Re: SATA 300/600 drives on a 150 storage controller

Is probably 5000 or 7000 series.
Can probably figure it out by looking up the chip on it with google.

I'm not 100% sure but I think the 7000's were LBA 48-bit and the 5000 weren't.

Re: SATA 300/600 drives on a 150 storage controller

Stuff that's just archived can go on RAID 1.
Stuff you are currently using and want to be fast I would...

Re: SATA 300/600 drives on a 150 storage controller

Logical Volume = Partition.

The 2TB is using NTFS with the default 512 bit clusters and it limits *partition size*, not drive size.
You can get 16TB partitions by using 4096 bit clusters.

Re: SATA 300/600 drives on a 150 storage controller

LBA is just the addressing scheme. (Logical Block Addressing)
Nothing to do with data transfer at all, just storage size.

With 48-bit addressing (assuming default 512k clusters) the limit is 144...
