    Does anyone know the make and model of the 1 TB hard drive that ships with the 2010 Mac Pro? I'm looking to buy an identical model and create a RAID 0 array.

    Thanks

    From pictures I've seen in another thread it is the 1TB 32MB cache WD Caviar Black.

    Just open up the DiskUtil and compare the part numbers?

    Actually, there are 3 versions. I think Apple rather uses the bulk SATA 3GBit/s-version, aka WD1001FALS. Or some older revision, which you won't be able to buy.

    It is, indeed, a WD1001FALS. (At least, it is in mine.)

    Is it loud? I heard the Caviar Black is supposed to be the powerful, but loud one and the Caviar Green a silent but slow one?

    I have 3 2TB Caviar Blacks, 1 in my Dell and 2 in external enclosures, and they've never seemed particularly loud. I plan to put all 3 in my new Mac Pro in a RAID 0 array, so that should be a real test of just how loud they are!

    I can hear it when it's working, but only if I actually listen for it. I don't notice it during normal use. It's not what I would call loud.
