Hy People... Ipve been recently looking arround a new HD and liked the SATA Raptor but it is small and I´d need a sata card etc so I´ll let it to next SATA-Raid mobo I buy in the next machine. For now I want a 80 Gb. This models are easyer for me to buy, so I´d like to know if anyone can point me to some comparisons or personal comments about them. Noise is of concern to me. I currently use a 7200 rpm silent seagate HD and like it, but, off course, if the moise is similar I rather buy the fast one. They mus work Ok at Odd pci clocks too!!! Better, they MUST work Ok at odd pcis clocks :D .
