I bought a second WD 80g Caviar and I just noticed they are different. One's metal top is smaller than the other's, and one has a thicker black area.

They are supposed to be the same b/c they have the same name I thought... Will this affect either one's performance? I will be running them in RAID0.

What are the production dates on the drives? Different revision maybe?

If they are the same model number and type, then by all means RAID0 'em.

One may just be older... or one may be a JB (8mb cache) as opposed to BB (I don't know that they made JB Caviar drives though). If the latter is the case it may effect it, otherwise I doubt it. Either way you should be good to go with raid 0 on em'.
