Post your Crucial m4 Raid 0 Benchmarks.

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
Posting Format : As SSD or something similar and comparable, with information regarding your setup... chipset, driver, sata controller, and most importantly stripe size.

See below for a reason to check within rst to enable write back cache, after you already probably thought you had it enabled elsewhere in device manager (at least that's what happened to me).

Mobo:Asus P8P67 Pro 3.1 (latest non beta bios)
Drives: Two Crucial m4 128gb (firmware 0009) connected to intel sata 6 ports (WHITE).
Raid 0 : Stripe 128kb (default).
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 sp1 (fresh install.. updated to the tilt), office 2010, PhotoShop, Acrobat, Chrome.. and codecs + vlc. Nothing else is installed.

Intel RST Raid : 10.6.0.1022
Intel Chipset: 9.2.0.1030
-------------------------------------------------


--------------------------------------------------------
Write back cache enabled via RST... even though it was already enabled via device manager on above benchmarks.




So except for 4k reads, which appear to be lower than the the drive not in raid... it seems pretty golden.

I'm curious as to what results everyone else has gotten.

New firmware 0009 boosts performance 20% thus 500+ MB/s Reads.

write caching enabled is recommended?

i keep seeing other guides recommending it disabled.

It depends on the drive, basically .. i saw an increase in my 4k writes.. so I left it enabled... I might experiment with different stripe sizes... but I'm not sure if it's going to make a difference in my 4k reads. It feels pretty damn fast... but not that much faster than my intel 80gb.

I'm hoping that others will post.. and we'll figure out what are the best settings for these drives. I'm guessing that alot of people might of picked up a pair b/c of the deal where they were going for 150 or so shipped last month.

Honestly, I only raided for capacity.. the performance increase is a hell of a bonus. Watching photoshop load after boot up in less than 3 seconds is well wonderful
