The New Beast(Build Log 56k hell) PIX!! - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Well I know what I'm doing when I scavenge an extra hundred bucks... 2x160's. Well don't know about the rest of the numbers, but 103MB/s read is damn good compared to my ****achi 250 @ 55MB/s avg read...

Suhweet. Yeah I have a 250GB in my other rig and I decided to dabble in the arts of RAID. I'm so far enjoying it, everything is noticeably faster. Then again, it could also be the quad-core and 4GB of RAM but hey, I can think it, right?

I also went with 2x 160GB because I wanted a decent amount of space, but not a ridiculously obscene amount of space. No need for it for me.

I've never dabbled in the RAID dept but a buddy of mine has a few TB RAID array averaging 200+MB/s sustained. I'd just like to throw 2 'cheap' 160's and 1/2 my loading times...

And dude, it's most definitely the RAID...

Nice I'm not very fond of that case, though. I had one before (non-windowed), and I modded it, but it was very cramped and there's barely any cable management features :S

Here was my best attempt:

Also, what's the best sector size. 16kb, 32kb, 64kb, or 128kb?
It would be a PITA but if you test an indivdual drive then the RAID you will see about a third larger bandwidth.

Access/seek time will not change in RAID: that is a mechanical limitation of the actual dirve mechanism...how fast the arm jitters, the head find s the cluster etc...

It's thre sustained read that you want to look at. 103 Megabytes per second is decent.

No doubt those 160GB drives are indivdually pushing about 64 mb/s so it's a huge increase in throughput...meaing when you are streaming data in and out as in downloading or serving files it will not bog..and it should be more responsive in desktop thatn a single drive.

Nice build man...you must have worked the ole web browser pretty hard to get all that together for just $900

/gasp The great CD has posted in my thread, I feel blessed. So what do you recommend to speed it up? If it involves formatting and changing the sector size, that's fine. I really haven't loaded much on here yet.

But yeah I went back and forth for a couple days looking at different parts and finally wound up with this. Granted you'll have to add in about 280 for the 8800GT from Best Buy, but the 900 is everything else.

@Star - Yeah it's friggin cramped. I'm going to miss my armor(need a smaller comp to lug around the USMC) with how much room it has. It's going to my dad so at least he won't bog it down with crap like my sister does to their Dell.

So I threw my VF900 I had on my 7900GS onto the 8800GT and DAMN did it cool down. Went from ~51C idle to 39C idle. Haven't checked load yet, but I'm sure it decreased it a butt load as well.

I hate double postage but. I just ran 3D Mark 06 and getting close to 14k.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v6.../138k3DM06.jpg

Oh, so... I'm trying to figure out how to run my CPU and RAM as close to 1:1 as I can. According to Everest it's at 12:8 right now. What would I have to do to get it to 1:1? BTW, I'm also Intel overclocking retarded, so I don't get about... 75% of the settings available in my BIOS. Anyone got a VERY good guide for Intel OC'ing?
post #28 of 28
There is an Intel Overclocking Guide here.

As for the 1:1 ratio, I think you need to get your proc to run at 500x6 (3000mhz) and thus your ram and processor will be running at the same speed. I think that's how it works, anyways. I have never owned an Intel
