Mac Pro :: 2XRaid 32GB Cache V.s 3XRaid 16GB Cache?

Mar 22, 2008

I need to populate the bays of my new MacPro 2.66 with 5GB RAM. The stock HD turns out to be a Seagate 250GB HD ST3250820A. I've found them online and wonder if I just should RAID three or four of them as opposed to one Seagate 500GBs or 750 with 32GB cache? These would all be a Raid run by Apple software not a RAID card.

Mac Pro :: Samsung Spinpoint 32mb Cache F1 Vs Seagate Barracuda 32mb Cache

Jan 26, 2008

Which one of these 500gb drives is better? I've been browsing Newegg for two hours now reading reviews. The Seagate drives seem to come with bad firmware that causes performance and cache recognition issues. The Samsung drives have a high failure rate. Whats the real deal? Has anyone here had any bad experiences with either drives?

Mac Pro :: 32 MB Cache In 1 TB Hard Disk In Early 2009 MP?

May 17, 2009

If you bought an Early 2009 Mac Pro with the 1 TB hard disk drive, what is the brand and model? I am most interested in knowing if the 1 TB HDD is a 32 MB cache or a 16 MB cache.

I believe if you get your Mac Pro with the 640 KB HDD it's only with a 16 MB cache.

Applications :: Safe To Delete Final Cut Pro Cache Folders?

Dec 1, 2008

So I have created a video presentation for a project I am working on using Final Cut Pro. I noticed Final Cut Pro creates a default folder in Documents called "Final Cut Pro Documents." This folder contains six additional folders:

1. Audio Render Files
2. Autosave Vault
3. Capture Scratch
4. Render Files
5. Thumbnail Cache Files
6. Waveform Cache Files

Is it safe to delete these six folders? I wouldn't otherwise care, but collectively they are taking up 25 GB on my HD. I'm not planning to delete the actual FCP project files and their attached media, but rather the above six folders which appear to be cache? Do I run any risk of losing my entire presentation if I delete these six folders, or is it simply a matter of just re rendering my project if I delete them?

MacBook :: Impact Of L2 / L3 Cache On Design / Drafting Purposes?

Jul 15, 2009

I am curious to know if L2/L3 cache impacts the performance of a macbook being used for Design and Drafting purposes. Of course this involves retrieving and real-time changes that will be made on a server and/or the macbook itself. Secondly, how significant will the functioning depend between a 3mb and a 4mb L2/L3 cache?

Mac Pro :: Mac Pro Woodcrest 3.0GHz, Original HDD Cache, Boot ROM, Bus, Host

Oct 26, 2010

For several years now, daily, I've ran through a number of different HDD's under relatively stable (although hard-working) conditions (Seagate, WD, and now Hitachi). None of them ever crashed until recently (WDD Caviar Black 640MB). But there have regularly been periods of time (before that) in the past when I would hear what sounded like sharp-twang on Shutdown - like a noise from a toy ray-gun or something. It's happened a few other times in the past, although an HDD has never failed shortly thereafter.

MacBook Pro :: How To Clean Fans

Apr 13, 2008

I've been advised to clean my MBP fan's out with compressed air, since I've owned it for 6 months now. So my question is, where would I actually spray the compressed air without opening the chassis? I'm scared to use it on the keyboard because I've heard keys popping off that way, and wondering if I spray into the vent below the screen, I would just blow the dust deeper into the computer...

MacBook Pro :: Keep New Keyboard Clean?

Oct 25, 2008

I just got my new MacBook Pro today. One problem I had with my old black MacBook is that the keys got really dirty. dust fell between the cracks, but, more annoying, from typing, the finish wore off and got shiny/greasy. Is there anything I can do to mitigate this problem, particularly the problem of ruining the nice finish on the keys with skin oil?

I know the fan will eventually collect a lot of dust.

Do I need to take the bottom of the computer off to clean that? Does that void the warranty?

I'm looking into what is good to keep my MBP screen clean from residue such as saliva (from the dreaded coughs) and dirt.

What do you guys use to keep your screen free from residue? Do you guys use any solutions?

Would using a lint-free cloth (such as the ones made for wiping spectacles with) work?

MacBook Pro :: Can I Clean Install Like Pc?

Jun 22, 2010

I have recently switched from PC to MAC (actually waiting for my Mac to arrive any day now!).

I have one question it necessary to reformat a Mac HD like I would on my PC?

I find that I have to do a fresh install of Windows about every 6 months as my PC gets bogged down with stuff.

Is this the same on a Mac or does a Mac stay "cleaner" as you use it (if that makes sense..)?

MacBook Pro :: Ways To Keep Keys Clean?

Nov 1, 2010

I currently use a keyboard protector (Moshi clearguard) on my MBP but after usage, the protector makes the keyboard really ugly to look at. It isn't as "clear" as many people have reviewed. Anyway, when I try using it without the protector, the oil from my fingertips (my fingers feel dry!) seem to make the keys glossy (the nasty kind of glossy)

I realize that I can use the keyboard without the protector, and then scrub it down every week but that seems like a huge hassle.

Is there a way I can make the keys look exactly like they look without the protector and still make it resistant from the gloss from the skin oil?

Maybe apply a small special film on each of the keys? or get some professional coating done on the keys?

The Moshi protector seemed somewhat clear when I first used it but after time, it really isn't clear and makes the keyboard look dirty

MacBook Pro :: Clean Surface Of Keys?

Nov 5, 2010

A couple days ago I accidentally spilled lemonade all over my room. I didn't think I had gotten any on my keyboard, but apparently I did, as some of my keys are now sticky and really hard to press. Is there any way that I can 'unstick' these myself, or do I have to take it to my nearest tech store? (fyi my keys are most sticky under the keyboard and not on top of them). The computer is a 2010 MacBook Pro. Also, is there a way to clean the surface of your keys? I'm not too thrilled about the way they look right now and I would like to try and get them back to what they looked like when I bought it.

MacBook Pro :: Clean Install - No Confirmation For Zero Out

Jan 2, 2011

I did a fresh install of Mac OSX on it and then booted it up from the CD again and did a zero-out. I left about halfway through and when I came back I never had any confirmation that it was done so I did another zero out. Again, I didn't receive confirmation when it finished but I did watch it finish that time. I guess I'm just paranoid that someone will be able to get something off of it because I used it for so many years and have so many passwords. So, my question there anything else I should do prior to shipping it off or am I in the clear even if it falls into the wrong hands on ebay?
