Upgrades Information


UK Gaming Computers offers RAID options to improve performance of hard disks or data security. To add a raid option you must select two identical hard disks. We will install raid to the first two identical disks.



RAID 0 - Stripe

Technical Specifications:
  • Distributes data across several disks in a way that gives improved speed at any given instant. If one disk fails, however, all of the data on the array will be lost, as there is neither parity nor mirroring.



RAID 1 - Mirror

Technical Specifications:
  • Mirrors the contents of the disks, making a form of 1:1 ratio realtime backup. The contents of each disk in the array are identical to that of every other disk in the array. Increased read performance occurs when using a multi-threaded operating system that supports split seeks, as well as a very small performance reduction when writing. Array continues to operate so long as at least one drive is functioning.


Whilst UK Gaming Computers endeavour to make sure our descriptions are 100% correct, manufacturers may alter specifications slightly, it is your responsibility to check the specification with the manufacturer.
