Hi guys,

I've been having some issues with the controller on this motherboard. I have gotten a hold of 8 Supersspeed S301 64GB drives and decided to see how they went in an 8 way raid.

I set them up as a striped volume under windows 7 as I've read from a few places that its better to bypass the LSI hardware and let the OS handle it all.

Here is a run in AS SSD:



The sequential read and write performance are ok although I suspect they could be better.

But the 4k-64Thrd write score was quite bad.

So I did one with a single drive:



I was starting to think that maybe the HDDs were limited somehow.

But then I tried it on the X79 Intel port and got this:



So something is up. I expected a little variation between the LSI ports and the Intel ports, but I never thought it would be by that much.


I've tried testing the different identical drives individually and get similar scores.

Any ideas?

Thanks

edit:

Ran ATTO and Crystal Disk on the striped volume and got these results
