Why so many sata drives? I'd just mirror and be done.
I just run a single drive but I have a file server with 4 500gb drives in raid 5
Yeah I am contemplating running a file server instead to avoid having to have so many HDDs in my computer. I really would rather have one 74GB raptor, and one 500-750GB storage drive on the computer itself and then a file server in the house.
I already used newegg's calc, but I was more focused on things like the 12v rail and reliability of the unit
Im picking up a modular cable Silverstone 650 with the single 12v
Nub question, when you say single 12v rail, does that mean one BIG thing making the 12volts instead of 4 smaller things (technical name) making it add up to 650 watts. The opposite of discrete home audio amps?
Someone told me that not every company rates there wattage the same. Most companies display max watts and few do RMS?
