    Exclamation Raid controllers?

    Anyone know if raid controllers takes much power (IDE RAID)? Planning to do a raid, and running on tight on power with the opus 150.

    The controller itself doesn't take lots of power, but the drives that make up the array do.
    RAID is pointless in the vehicle and simply wasting power, IMHO.

    If redundancy and data protection is what you're after, there are other ways to achieve it. If performance is your goal, then stick with a single drive.

    If you absolutely must have a RAID array, get a beefier power supply like a DSATX or an Opus 250w.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.
