Are all 73GB 16mb raptors the same for raid?

Quick question: I have a 73GB raptor (the one in my sig) and I want to set it up in raid 0 with an as yet unpurchased drive. Will any 73GB raptor with 16MB of cache do or does the MFG date, batch #, etc matter?

It is highly recommended that you use the same model, but I have read where some people have had success using the older 8MB cache with the 16MB cache model. It is not guaranteed to work though. ;)

As long as you get another 16MB cache Raptor, you'll be fine. There is currently only one firmware version of the drive so you'll have a match.
