NEED HELP, Storage Compatabillity

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a Dell Poweredge with x6 2TB 7200rpm hdds, they're WD Black, would it work if i put one or 2 of these into my main pc for extra storage? I know that like ECC Ram cant be used in gaming rigs so is that the type of thing thats going on here or is it all the same

yes, any SATA storage device will be usable as normal in a different PC.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Ok, thank you, also they're configured in a RAID0 config i believe, can i just yeet one out of the server and throw it in while in that configuration or will it mess up main pc (i dont care about server i have nothing on it so i can reset whenever)

Also i just took a caddy out and on it it says " Enterprise storage" is that still ok? also, it is SATA, but there is also a 8pin on it, is that just optional for the server? or unneseccary or whats up with that

The raid array will be lost when you remove one drive, but once it's removed it can just be formatted as a normal hard drive and so can the other one.

The 8 pin on hard drives is the old format for slave and master jumpers, which are obsolete these days. Your PC won't have anything for that. "Enterprise" is just the fanciness of the drive, since WD Black is the more expensive line for the big boys. Still, it works the exact same way as the WD blues at the budget end.
