Advance Format HDD good for mining?
I'd like to buy 1 new internal hard drive and came across a good deal, so it seems, but i'm not sure it's good to mine
This is the drive
Seagate Barracuda 7200.14, 3 TB
(SATA 600, ST3000DM001, Advanced Format)
I don't know if the "advanced format" drives can be used to mine or even in my computer.
I have an intel i5
Can someone advice?
@Zeroroel Advanced format means it supports 4KB sectors, it'll work with your system and you can definitely plot and mine on it.
@haitch thank you again. 0.03€ per GB costing total for this disk is 99€ so pretty good deal here in Belgium
@Zeroroel Not a bad deal at all. I aim a little lower, but not bad.
