Great article and discussion.

I am currently building a new system and I found this article to be a great read. It helps raise some potential issues that I am going to face.

I also have found the post-discussion to be helpful as well.

It makes my visit to this forum very worthwhile.

Thanks.

These drives are for a RAID Mirror pair on a Promise TX2300 controller card. The whine is each drive is equally loud. It is very high pitch and can easily be notic...
