When building a machine for data recovery, what specs should I look for in a CPU/MOBO?
From my understanding the BUS speed will be the most important factor over CPU speed correct? Because you are doing I/O and not really requiring CPU cycles should you run DDRecovery or some application like that.
Does memory play a big part in this as well?
I know I will want 6GBPs SATA ports.
Just to better explain the question.
Someone's drive fails and needs to be cloned or data pulled off of it. Or something along the lines of that. The idea is that this system would be used to plug the drives in and focus on pulling the data off and writing it to another drive.
