which stripe size fastest?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi has anyone experimented to see whats the best stripe size using RAID 0,to use for the fastest game level loading times ,
I set mine to 64k but im wondering if it would have been faster if id used 128 or 32?
As it is faster loading games than when i had just one sata but not as much as i though it should be now..

Leave it at 64k. That will put you in a 4:1 ratio with the Windows' cluster size (16k), which is optimal.
