:tazz: Hi all,
I just wanted to run this buy some folks to see if there is an optimum setup for using a single SATA HD in my system while still utilizing my WD 200GB HD for storage etc..
I believe my computer set-up will show up when I submit this thread. My plan is to go over to a double HD RAID sys. at a later date. For now, I would like to utilize as much speed from my new boot drive (Western Digital 74GB Raptor 10,000 HD) as possible. Are there any additional bios/CMOS settings to tweek in the ABIT setup for AV8-3RD EYE RIG? Thanks

Not that I know of. You are on target using it for your boot drive, but to realize the potential of the Raptors you should really run RAID 0.

;) Yup, thanks. So the present out of the box speed of the hard drive is as good as it gets for now. Just the 10,000RPM compaired to the 7200RPM etc.. Thats what I figured. The RAID w/another HD is where the magic begins ;) . Other than that the system works great the way it is. Games rip and the rest is gravy.
Thanks :tazz:
