IDE RAID 0 and FSB OC's
 
Given the same hardware, is a striped array more sensitive to FSB overclocks, than the same drives running separate partitions?

I have a RAID mobo, and matching HDD enroute, but I'm curious to know if this will increase the number of overclocking issues.. I realize that risk of failure increases in general, since either drive going down means data loss... but I don't want to make overclocking harder.

Naw, at lest it never has for me, but I use Promise cards, so may not be quite the same for you.

Thanks Dan~,
That helps.. I'm getting the AT7 max, with HPT RAID on board, and a pair of ATA133 maxtors. I want to dabble with RAID, and since this is my first RAID, I want to be prepared for any unexpected bumps. :)

Same here.....Ive been planning to mess around with RAID 0 configs for quite some time now. :)

Show us what happens after you get your RAID up.:D

My raids working fine with 2x 20gig fugi's at 166fsb on my at7 and it worked on my IT7 to :)

Got it set up now, and it's noticably faster. I'm down to only 256mb of DDR so the HDD gets accessed a lot. I've got it set up as a RAID 0 using 2 ATA133 60gig maxtors (16k)... 8gig primary, and 100gig secondary partitions. Running NTFS, I need to find a good benchmark proggie... but I don't need it to notice the improvement. (still need more ram tho)

i've had my raid 0 running at 200 fsb on 8k3a+ no problems with two barracuda IV 2 x 60 g

no problems with (r)AID 0 with my PCI BUS out of spec.....
the (r)AID will crap out on you once the 1st part of the (r)AID doesnt like PCI speed you are running at.....

So test your drives and controller before you set the RAID up...
whatever PCI speed stops you thier, being a HDD or a controller...
You will now know the limit of what your RAID will be able to handle.

Using a modded (for RAID) Promise TX2 Ultra card.

I'm running my Promise at 214 FSB, I'll try the built in RAID when my second 8K5A 2+ gets here":O}

[thinking out loud]

Any know if you can strip eight drives with the 8K5A3+ ??? :evil:

Yup, I have the AT7max, which uses the same HPT374 raid, 4 raid connectors. :evil:

Only down side is that the HPT site says all over the place that it can do ATAPI CDROMS... but I haven't been able to get it to work on mine.

Too bad the PCI bus on which the controller rests is only good for 132MBs eh?

But isn't that why we overclock the PCI bus too? :-D

PCI-X will bring up to 4 times the bandwidth for peripherals, can't wait for that . . .

Daniel ~ 9th September, 2002 11:00 PM

Got a due date Jeff?

Daniel ~ 9th September, 2002 11:01 PM

Bad Daniel, BAD! I can't afford to even think about new hard ware for a year!! LOL

I dunno, AMD is making a "PCI-X tunnel" for Hammer systems, but I really get the feeling they intend it more for servers than workstations. Who knows when we will see boards and peripherals that use it. The fact that Intel is pushing a rival technology called 3GIO or "PCI Extreme" complicates matters. We will see much change in the PC platform in 2003 and 2004, much like the kind of change we saw back in '98 and '99 . . . .

I know that MSI actually mislabeled the 64bit PCI slots on the KD7-Master as "PCI-X" slots, but other than that.. SATA on PCI-X would be verrry niiice indeed
