Hard Drives -- different "cache" sizes ?

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I have a Dell PowerEdge T630
server with PERC H330 which has
0 cache memory and RAID 5 using
three 600B 10k 64MB cache hard drives
on Windows Server Standard 2012R2
1. Will replacing one of these
with the same drive, but a smaller
32MB cache work ?

2. If so, will it cause
performance issues ?
