Just wanted you to know, that even without the raid management -- just the raw raid, I am able to stack and stack layers of video and no red bars!
WIll do more testing tomorrow -- and post it somewhere.
But very impressed.
RAID or no RAID, you won't have red bars when stacking multiple clips and using accelerated effects if you're using hardware MPE--the yellow bars are all due to the GPU. Now, how it actually plays back may have something to do with the RAID, but the colored bars are GPU acceleration indicators, only.
Congrats on the new build--kind of fun, ain't it?
Where do I find Hdd Power Management. Is it a utility that comes with the raid?
Hmmm. I see a Hdd Power management in the Areca raid controller that I used during startup via the "tab" setting.
Your version looks non-dos. Do you have a separate GUI verison?
Anyway let me see if I can match your settings in the "dos Veriosn"
Ah I found it!
I guess I installed it from the Areca CD when I was poking around on it.
(For those following this thread) It's under Programs Mraid > ArcHTTP ArchHTTPGUI
It will launch your default browser. You might have to go into File settings to browse offline
When it prompts for the username and password use the default username and password (unless you changed it) that you used in the Areca setup. If not sure, look in the manual under, as I recall, default username and password.)
goto hardware monitor and check the temp of the raid card.
you are nearly there.
I'm away from my editing computer today. When I resume on thursday I'll do the temperature readings.
Also I'll be picking up that little fan I ordered for (was it the raid) -- and add it to the mix.
Might want to look at Disk Write Cache Mode a little closer. My understanding of it is that if you have a system crash while writing the cache, it is possible to lose the unwritten data. I never "enable" this as the small time savings is not worth the risk.
The solution is simple, a BBM (battery backup module). In case of a system crash your data will still be written to disk. Even safer than no cache at all, because exposure to a system crash is much longer without a cache for all the writes to finish.
Second aspect is that a raid3 controller first writes the data on all the drives, while caching the parity data, that are written last from the cache to the parity disk. So not using cache is significantly slower and more risky than using a BBM.
he motherboard is the main component inside the case. It is a large rectangular board with integrated circuitry that connects the rest of the parts of the computer including the CPU, the RAM, the disk drives (CD, DVD, hard disk, or any others) as well as any peripherals connected via the ports or the expansion slots.

I think you are on the wrong thread,
thanks for the links,
