New RAID 0 creating lag spikes

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
First, some basic specs for troubelshooting:

Hard drive (RAID 0): 2 WD 1tb drives
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822136284

OS: Vista 64
Motherboard: Asus M2N-SLI
Processor: AMD Athlon 4600, dual core, 64 bit
RAM: 3gigs DDR2 800
Video: GeForce 8800 GT

I decided to try RAID out for the first time, and I am experiencing some difficulties after a fresh windows install. I have started to experience random lag spikes. The spikes usually occur at a rate of a couple of times per minute, with simple operations like web browsing (has happened several times while writing this post). Using the resource monitor, I can plainly see that any time I suffer from these spikes my disk use goes way up. I am new to RAID setups, so I am unsure if there is perhaps some setup or optimization I have missed. I would appreciate any suggestions for how to fix or at least identify my problem. Thank you in advance!

I had this problem once with a raid setup, it ended up being my bios and i had to update it. After that all was good.
