Windows 7: Best Cluster Size

Best Cluster Size

First of all, i'm not sure if this is the right section, so sorry if i made a mistake.

I intend to format my SEAGATE 1000/7200 (1TB size [actual size is 931GB, the *******s]). Using the builtin FORMAT function Windows asked me what cluster size i want to have. And i don't know. I am aware that the smallest is best for space management, but perhaps there are factors that i am unaware of.

Does anyone has any tips for me ?

No. There won't be any boost of system performance no matter what option you pick.
Just use default and let the OS do what it does best.
