    @Samrulez, raptors are not the fastest HDs!! Seagate has got a 15,000 RPM (Cheeta)!! Seagate's Cheeta HDs are the world's fastest. They are mainly used for Servers. Since these HDs spin around 10,000 to 15,000 RPM they also produce more heat. So you need to have adequate cooling in place!! See the following link for more details:
