Default Re: Which HD / HD buffer size for nForce430?

...hdparm -t numbers of my WDC WD2500KS:
Code:
Timing buffered disk reads:  176 MB in  3.01 seconds =  58.40 MB/sec
hddtemp: ~32C

but I think you should go with the RAID version (WDC WD2500YD)
Code:
 Timing buffered disk reads:  176 MB in  3.01 seconds =  58.41 MB/sec
hddtemp: ~27C


A little bit more expensive, but 5C cooler .


BTW:
what do you get with hdparm -t /dev/sd?



Anyway... in (software) RAID 0
Code:
 Timing buffered disk reads:  348 MB in  3.01 seconds = 115.49 MB/sec
