internal usb hub + raided thumbdrives - 07-27-2009, 11:09 PM
My initial goal is to install an internal usb hub using the pins on the "mini pcie" slot used for the wwan card and then use that to connect 2-4 8GB thumbdrives in raid0. Hopefully that can start to throttle the usb2.0 bandwidth. I was just wondering if anyone else has already done this on their mini 9 and gotten any numbers from it. Basically, cpu usage and transferrates.
No idea what i'd use the 16-32GB drive for, since i plan on streaming any large files over the wifi when needed but why not.

de-cased is what i plan on using.
anyway, just looking to hear about anyone going this route. seeing as how we can't use two ssd's in native pata.
