I'll be very interested in how those raid cards perform. I'm getting quite sick of migrating raid arrays between builds using on-board raid.

That's great if all of your machines are in the same room or close by... but then again I have machines all over the house (one per TV, 3 workstations, 1 Server). I guess I could have done the same thing if I felt like running 2 4-port cards in the server! This setup is totally in line with the title (on both the Excessive side and the Insanity side)... doubt you'll see anything over 20% utilization even with bigger transfers. biggrin.gif

Considering they all have 512MB or more in cache and they will each have 8 drives on them they should be able to beat the onboad by quite a bit. but if i and when i do decide to rebuild i will still have to migrate the raid systems and rebuild them...

Digicidal,

Considering the ones that will have the 10 Gigabyte cards are in one case this is no problem and I still have 2 onboard 1 gigabyte for the other 2 PC's I have to hoop to server. So no problem here and 20% of 10 gigabyte is more than 1 gigabyte so it is twice as fast as regular network.

Here's to hoping you don't *derp* when you start it up and type ?/c/import skynet
