Hello Everyone, First, here is what I have.
Asus x79 Pro board:
2 6Gb Sata
4 3Gb Sata
2 6 Gb Marvell sata
2 6Gb Esata
4 WD Blacks 1TB
1 256 SSD
2 128 SSD
1 120 SSD
1 500 HDD
1 300 HDD
1 250 HDD
GTX 760 G Card
3820 CPU, but will have 3920K in 2 months
32 Gig Ram
Adobe CC suite
Sony Vegas pro
And their usual sidekicks
Media is mostly HDV, XDcam, GoPro, Dslr
Here is how I do my Workflow :
(and I'm probably doing it all wrong but its how I learned to do it )
All Data is on externals with backups.
I import the media I want to work with, do my editing, send the finished product back out to external. Then clear media from worksystem so everything is clean and uncluttered when I go to next project. 90 % of projects are 5 to 15 minutes long when finished.
Now the meat:
What I want to do is:
Raid0 the 4 WDs to the 4 3Gb satas(Media)
256 SSD to Marvell 6Gb Sata (OS,Programs)
128 SSD 6Gb Sata (Previews)
128 SSD 6Gb Sata (Media Cache)
The Unknown is:
Will the OS and Software run ok on the Marvell Sata ? Or will there be a noticeable slow down or glitches ?
OR, Am I on the way to the wonderful land of controller cards ? LOL
Any help, changes or suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated !!!!
Thanks for the info but it really didn't give me an answer ( well, it probably did , but I'm to dumb to see it, lol). Has anyone connected the OS , Software drive to Marvell Sata and noticed slow down or problems ?
In other words, is average I/O demand of the OS, Software drive greater or less than a Real world Marvell 6Gb connection ?
I'm just not sure what the average I/O demand is for the OS, software drive compared to the Media or Preview drive.
