That's a beastly setup How does your OS take that long to load? Drivers hanging during startup, or something else? I only have one drive and I absolutely have every single thing start up and my system completely loads in about 45 sec from hitting the power button.

It takes 10 min. to do a fresh "install" (load) Windows 7 Pro 64 bit OS via the Windows 7 DVD.
It took 10 min. with two drives (RAID) and 14 min. with one drive, I've probably maxed my rig out with the three drives.

I think you have reached the limits of the Intel RAID controller with that speed.

I understand what you're saying and I thought three drives would max out the controller but my point is, when I went from two to three drives my ChrystalDiskMark numbers went up but installing the OS times did not go down. I expected about 8 min to load the OS but the unpacking phase took just as long as with two drives.
Here something to look at, eight 30gb drives and some insane numbers. (post #24)

You probably hit the maximum transfer speed of the disk as the installation is run off the disk and it just cannot keep up with the speed of the drives. He is probably getting those extreme speeds as he is running it on a RAID controller.

I use Windows 7 to save a backup image of the SSD's to my standard onboard drive. If things start to slow down I can break RAID, clean the drives with HDDErase 3.3, standard erase, option 1(loaded on a bootable USB drive). Then use the repair option on the Windows 7 DVD to reimage the SSD's.
There are other options out there but I'm stuck on this one because it's easy and fast once you have the procedure set up, I've read where HDDErase returns the SSD's back to factory fresh and it's nothing you have to install like a tweak or utility, which I avoid doing.

Count me in !



Is it really supposed to drop that much?

* EDIT *

I ran another test after doing few modifications, avarage speed increased slightly but Acces time increased by 0.3ms, that who could that have happened and why does it get so intense drop @ 50%?
