Which raid volume is the fastest?
Posted on 2007-08-08
I have four 500Gb HDs and ASUS P5B-E motherboard (chipset P965 with ICH8R Southbridge Raid controller supporting Intel Matrix Storage)
I'd like to create 2 raid volumes:
1. 100Gb (Raid 10 or 0+1) for system files
2. about 1.2Tr (raid 5) for data
As I understand speed of the volume depends on part of the HD where it is phisicaly located - inner or outer. My question is: If I want to make system volume the fastest, should I create it first or after the data volume?
I will use the computer primary for multimedia editing, therefore speed and reliably are very important to me.
Thank you for your help!
