Raid 10 with 2 NCQ drives a 2 non ncq drives
Posted on 2006-11-20
I have a dell 9200 (ich8r) that supports 6 sata/esata drives. The 2 internal drives are SATA 3.0Gbps (samsung SP2504C) drives. I have a 3rd drive, a WD2500JS.
The 2 onboards have NCQ but the 3rd one doesn't. I was planning on getting another WD2500JS to get a matched set, running them on/over eSATA and create a RAID 10.
So here's the problem/question. Since I have 2 that support ncq and 2 that don't. Is there a way to optmimize them drive arrangement to make use of NCQ?
