No raid does not lower the lifespan. What you may have heard is that the probablitity of a HDD failure is increased with RAID0. This is due to to the fact you are splitting the files over 2 HDDs so if one fails then all you files are lost - basically.

RAID0 is a bit more risky, but HDDs are so reliable these days you shouldnt have a problem.

the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro comes with MX-1 which on the "Battle of the Thermal Pastes" thread ranked higher than the AS5

its also funny that the mx-1 is the same price as the AS5, maybe the AS5 price's went up because it was so popular

Many don't know of the MX-1, because the AS5 has been shoved up everybody's thread, dealing with thermal pastes. Theres also MX-2, but I haven't heard much of it.
