Lately I have been having heat issues revolving around my drives, this is mostly due to having 3 drives stacked on top of each other with minimal cooling so I thought I would take a step in the right direction and consolidate all 3 drives into 1 WD 2 TB drive now that they have dropped over $100 in price.
So I swapped out the 3 drives and migrated the data over to a new shiny WD Black Edition 2 TB drive. Since I was already swapping drives and I have swapped so much hardware I decided I would swap my OS from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
So far the drive seems fast and the HD tach report shows the drive to be faster then a single WD 1TB Black drive but its not as fast as I had anticipated from the review I read online. One good thing is that it is slightly faster and a whole lot cooler so all in all it was a worth while upgrade.
