    Yo i got an i5 2400 @3.1 Ghz , GTX 1050 and 8gb of ddr2 ram . I wanna know if ddr2 ram here will be ruining my fps? Is ddr3 gonna increase the gaming performance? I am kind of a noob. Help will be appreciated.

    I have a very dumb idea...
    Get 3 of those and run them in RAID 0.
     
    So, a 6TB gaming drive that is three times more likely to fail.
    I mean, I COULD go with Firecudas in RAID, but not sure if the cache will cause issues.
    Did I mention this was a dumb idea?
     
    Also,

    Well, that's incentive. 😛
     
    Seriously though, out of curiosity, you guys are the only ones that I know of that make high capacity 2.5 drives (up to 5 TB if I am correct, although past 2 TB they start getting very thick).
    Why no Ironwolf drives in that form factor?  I would imagine that NAS drives with a smaller form factor would be rather desirable due to mini NAS boxes and simply maximizing the drive to space ratio.
    Although, I have no clue how popular they would actually be, or if there is limitations with the technology that would make a 2.5 Ironwolf difficult.
     
    Also, feel free to give input on my dumb RAID idea.

    Last few days I've been having an issue when trying to visit some pages on the Seagate/au website. Page just loads a blank white screen. Happens in multiple browsers (Chrome, Firefox), after clearing browser cache, and on my phone over data. Appears to be an issue on your end.
     
    Namely the page I'm having trouble accessing is the page for the Barracuda products:
    https://www.seagate.com/au/en/internal-hard-drives/hdd/barracuda/
     
    Which is the URL that is linked to for the Barracuda products from this page https://www.seagate.com/au/en/internal-hard-drives/ (<-- this main page works)

    Hey I have 4 ST8000DM002s w/ firmware DN02 on them. When the drives idle, they buzz very audibly. Looking at a few forum posts from people who had the same issue, they resolved it by upgrading to firmware SC61. When I try to obtain said firmware from the Seagate site, it tells me that DN02 is the most recent firmware. Any idea how I can resolve this?
