Hi guys, Im in the process of buying a 27" i7 iMac. I never use the optical drives so im going to take it out and my idea is to install two Intel X25-M G2 160gb drives in a software raid 0. This is my decision so thats not the question. However in another thread someone had shown a 3.5" adapter which took two 2.5" drives and create a hardware Raid 0 array. I presume the iMac has a 3.5" drive in it then? If you were to create a Raid 0 SSD array in an enclosure like this would the 3gb Sata connector be too slow to take advantage of it, would it be faster to have the two SSDS on separate sata busses and connected via software raid? IF its just as fast to put them on one sata connecter id be tempted to do that and throw in a 1tb drive in the optical slot and this would solve a lot of problems for me. As the next issue is, I need another 2tb of space for my huge sample libraries on the computer. Obviously im limited to FW800. ive got a number of redundant sata drives and ive been looking at the external dual disk raid enclosures. My question is would you see the benefit of two 7200rpm drives in an external raid 0 enclosure when connected over FW800 or would the FW800 connection bottom out with a single drive anyway?? I look forward to peoples input.
