Nvidia Software raid 0

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,
Just set this up today, and reinstalled windows on it and such. I am running the 2 750's in a stripe, and have it partitioned into 2 (one of 171Gb's for the OS and drivers and such, and the other at 1.23 Tb's for programs, games, and such). I was wondering if doing a software raid like this puts a lot more stress on the chipset. I have notices that my HDtune times get slower the longer it is on is why. If so, I am thinking about trying a water block on the northbridge to at least help out. Thanks guys

Post some benchmarks. You're more likely to get data errors than slowdowns if your chipset is overheating, so I doubt that is the cause. More likely is your system has a memory leak or something, so when it's been on for a while it starts paging (or some other background task), which slows down your benchmarks.

Something happened when I installed the drivers during OS installation. I was getting like 23mb/sec average times. I went through and reinstalled, and now I am getting 160mb/sec average speeds, with much more constant speed. I don't know what happened, but it wasn't happy. Much better now, thanks beats +rep
