ripples are spikes or drops in voltage.Imagine a smooth line that represents 10 volts..... sometimes it ripples, going to 12v or 7v.
So same thing. Just using a pond's ripple analogy. ---/\/\/\/\---

ok, so its basically fluctuating voltages on the 12 volt rail...

that wouldn't be good...

When i reviewed my power supply i had it hooked up to a multimeter for a day or so and it tell you the lowest and higher voltage it detected, i think it wound up being something like 12.01-12.05

Good stuff

ya but it is at a certain scale, they have boundaries that it riples in, if not they dotn sell it, and im preaty sure the riples stay tight, its not gonna really affect you in anyway, i looked up reviews all over the internet, they said the ripling wasnt something to worry about.

They cost too much and the performance benefit as compared to a high end sata drive is almost negligible.

750 or 1tb HDD because those are almost on par with a Raptor in speed..
