First RAID0 setup, these normal? - Page 2

post #11 of 26
The speeds look nice!
But why did you go with Raid0

If gaming!
I'd use one drive for the OS. And the other for games/storage

Drive 1, I'd partition 15% for my OS. And the remaining space I'd leave unpartitioned! (you can extend this partition if you start running out of space).

Drive 2, I'd partition 20% for games! And make a second partition using the remaining space, for storage! (If you need more than 200GB for games, make the games partition bigger).

My drives and partitions

I'm pretty sure he went with raid due to a r0 array being substantially faster in terms of read/write when compared to a single disk...(and faster than most SSDs in sequential r/w)

What you're suggesting just seems to overcomplicate everything for the sake of a little bit of redundancy.

But with regard to the previous poster, I agree. OP should read into short-stroking to increase performance if 2tb is too much

I'd have to re-install NOT using the whole capacity of drives? Damn... Might buy a 3rd drive just for lols sometime and then shortstroke it to like 1TB with 3 drives

Btw, isn't SATA II's limit 300MB/s? Does the 3rd increase performance?

Sorta and Sorta lol. You can have above 300mbs because you are running more than one drive across SATAII in your RAID config. Mine exceeded 300 and they are on SATAII ports. The third drive will by in large give you faster speed in general. More drives can cause performace slowdowns in some cases.

Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Storage -> Disk Management. Right-click the disk you want to shrink. Click Shrink Volume. Follow the instructions, so you have 25% - 50% unallocated space.

You can also delete any existing partition by deleting the volume, but you'll lose all your data on the disk. Once you've deleted the volume, recreate the partition with 25% - 50% unallocated space.
