WD VelociRaptor 600GB RAID review

VelociRaptor Up Close
Visually the 600GB is nearly identical to the smaller version we're all used to. The heat-sink dominating proceedings.
Of course if one VelociRaptor is lovely, then two are divine. Side by side they certainly look the part.
The benefit from the deep sides in the heat-sink is that when stacked closely together they still remain cool with plenty of room for the heat to escape.
ASUS Rampage III Extreme
Intel i7 950 @ 4GHz
6GB Mushkin Redline RAM
Corsair AX1200 PSU
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
2x Western Digital VelociRaptors in RAID 0
We will also be comparing against the nearest large capacity SSD to hand, the Kingston SSD Now V+ 256GB.
