Raptor / Seagate Raid idea

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey gents and ladies i got 3XRaptor 150 and 2XSeagate 250 drives in my machine, currentlly running off the onboard Southbridge controller, and my raptor speeds suck, even after enabling write caches...

Raptor Before and after write cache

Seagates before and after write cache
Heres what im thinking, the Raptor raid is slow as CANCER!
I think the Onboard Sata controller is overloaded...?
So i got my fingers on a:
http://www.promise.com/product/produ...product_id=165
Which drives should i run off the southbridge, and which off the Promise?
The raptors are gonna be in either a RAID 5or 0 as my system and games drives, whilst the Seagates are gonna stay a Media/system backup in Raid 0...
Ideas???
