My System Specs

Default

I've not personally tried this, but i would say that there is no reason for SATA3 with that hard drive.

Firstly, if you are running RAID0, then obviously you are looking for sheer speed. Why not go with 2TB drives? The denser platters = faster reads, writes and RATs. Even as a max burst read you won't see 250Mbps let alone 3Gbps so I really can't see why it would help.

Check out some of the reviews here on HWC. The 2TB blacks match the raptors for everything except RAT, but no HDD is in the range of a decent SSD.
