Friendly reminder to re-install your OS

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I don't wanna hear your excuses, I'm running some samsung 830's in raid 0 and i'm seeing benefits on after only running the same install for half a year.

You owe it to her, you really do. thumb.gif

Oh and remember to make a solid backup this time around, drop box should work if you are on fiber.

What OS and why are you running RAID on SSDs?

Also it may be helpful to add you rig to your sig.

Necessary? hardly. The purchase was made when 256gig ssd's had the best price per gig and i keep enough back ups and not enough unique data to run the risks raid 0 brings with it.

Updating sig rig atm, danky for suggestion

It's not the risks of RAID-0 that make it not worth it, but the lack of benefits. SSDs do not need the boost in sequential transfer speeds as most files are small so random access counts more than sequential transfer.

Storage was never my thing, ill be honest, i just didn't know how to consolidate the disk partitions and didnt want to micro-manage the files. Likewise, i have my doubts as to whether the "random small file" access will have comparatively degraded performance given a hefty 128kb strip size.

Edit:
I've never actually been inspired enough to run an atto storage benchmark, results in a sec.

Bench results, these good or bad(running 4 eve clients and watching some streams while benching)? Likewise, dont let this be an excuse for you to slack on the necessary custodial duties biggrin.gif

Bleh, this really isnt indicative of anything with my computer already under load T.T.

Completely de-railed from topic but here we are... my benchs(1-1.5 year old drives)

Single drive bench's from legitreviews.com(same ssd,single drive)

Small hit on <2kb files(older drives, they prolly lag just abit if one were to compare them otherwise), takes it from there on out. My skyrim modding days really appreciated that 1tb read/write biggrin.gif

Those are showing sequential speeds which are known to be higher for RAID-0.

Could you run AS SSD bench, it will be interesting to see if your 4K, 4K -64Thrd and access times (which is what matters in most cases) are faster than a single.

AS-SSD benchs, mine(2x 1.5yr old 128kb raid 0)

theirs (legitreviews.com single drive (new))


You now owe me 20million isk. You know how long it takes to align an orca? A long time wink.gif
So whats the scoop, in your professional opinion which would you recommend a media enthusiast/gamer?
