240 MB are filled up in about 45 minutes of recording.

I am running a quiet rig and that is why I wanted to know which HDD perform well and are not noisy ass ones.

With caching the SSD would be filled up pretty soon, due to the bottleneck of HDD write performance, wouldnt it?

Again... "I don't really know what i'm on about in terms of performance".
I'm just throwing ideas around mate.

I am just telling about the performance.
And I also thought about solutions with SSD, I only doubt that they would work for my particular situation...

I think I might just get two of those and if it doesnt work, Ill just send 'em back.

So I setup the two Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 2TB ST2000DM001 HDDs in Raid 0 in the bios with the intel storage controller. I had to plug my SSDs running in AHCI in the AsMedia controlled sata ports which increased boot time to about 20 sec with Win8, but my system is almost 24/7 on anyways and the performace I get out of this RAID 0 is just freaking amazing, IMHO.



That is almost double the performace of a single drive that benchmarks online show, especially in ATTO.

Yes they are only filled to 4 %, and yes performance will decrease when the drives get full of data, BUT now I can record up to 140 FPS in 1440p. Well at least games like Counterstirke, in BF3 my 680 outputs around 75-80 FPS which is totally fine for the gameplay videos I am making out of the footage, considering Youtube using a 29.73 FPS codec.

And they are really not "noisey ass mechanicals". They are quiet, not silent - of course due to moving parts etc. - but I cant hear them over my Noiseblocker eLoop fans at 1000 rpm that sound to me very similar to Noctua NF-F12 at 7V.

So, brilliant drives, IMHO.
