Well, in my new quad system I purchased one of the 400 gig "Green" hard drives that is suppose to be energy efficient.
Let me tell ya.... It uses less energy. That $#!@#%&# will almost shutdown during a short idle and then have to spin up and then spin down, spin up, spin down..... you get the point.
Anybody want an energy efficient hard drive?
My next one to replace this one will be a 150 or 300 gig WD 10,000 rpm that will use the crap out of electricity.
