Thank you @wendell . Appreciate the response.
I picked one up from a seller near(ish) me and I’m so pumped.
Worst drive has ~175TBW and best has ~50TBW. Obv used in a server but by my (complete) guess, I think there’s TONS of life left on them. Powered on for 8,500 hours (about 1 yr).
I’m thinking of partitioning each into 2 partitions so I can run 2 ultra-fast (4x RAID 0) scratch disks for ML/AI work. One I’d set up and use in Windows and the other in Linux… likely Clear Linux. Does that make any sense or am I dumb?
Actually maybe 4 partitions each. So I can test if it’s faster to boot off the LQD and use my other NVME/SATA as scratch (970 EVO Plus / other old SSDs) or vv. Unless anyone here has tested on similar workloads and can definitively tell me the answer!
