I'm going to laugh when one or two fail. Those Seagate drives are horrible about randomly failing.

Otherwise, the higher access time is due to you using the full size of the array. Short stroke the array for your boot partition for best performance. You'll lower your access times drastically that way wink.gif. Try like a 60-100GB short stroke and see what happens.

go a head and laugh , i don't worry about loosing them, i don't store anything on here that i'm afraid of loosing, thats all on my 1tb backup drive.

and short stroking it will help alot, but you'll end up with like 100 gb total, which i suppose is enough for anyone, i've thought about short stroking this 5 disk raid array.

no, short stroking is where you make a small partition, like 10% of the drive size, and use only that part of the drive, that uses the out side of the hard disk where the drive has a higher speed, when the needle gets closer to the spindle, it slows down because it can't read as fast. thats what causes that line that curves down in HD Tune when you run a full test. when you use only the first part of the drive and nothing else, it keeps the needles at the outside edge of that drive and keeps the speed up so as the drive fills up it won't decrease in speed as fast.

For the cost you could have just gotten an SSD..
Also the array will cost you at least $25 a year to operate more than an SSD

true, but these drives cost 220 bucks, from microcenter, and they pull 500+ mb/s, is there a SATA SSD that can do that SLC or MLC?

for that price of course

Any current-gen SSD will beat it in real-world usage, as your array will rarely (if ever) be doing purely sequential transfers in day-to-day usage.
