Thanks for all this wonderful info bro im actually doing more research on it as we speak to see if i can make the raid o perform faster/beter and i just came across a thread on Toms Hardware about putting both Sata and IDE hard drives in a raid array of like 4 or raid 2+2 or whatever it was sayin so im still experimenting and i will post more benchmarks!! I'm gonna do one where its only one of the Seagate 320Gb Sata II hdd's to see how much of a difference it is with one 320gb hdd versus using 2 320Gb hdd's in Raid 0 Array Stripe and if i get the sata and ide to work together in Raid i will benchmark that also and post for you's!! Thanks for taking the time to help me out and checking out my bench's i really appreciate it bro!!

Ok so now i have 3 Seagate Barracuda 320Gb Sata II hdd's and im recreating my Raid 0 Array to have more performance hopefully!?! And this time all 3 hdd's are running @7,200 rpm's... Will bench as soon as i get it up and running and will post another crystalmark bench to see if it will be higher (the read and write scores) than the last bench i did...

How did you not realize when you were initially creating the RAID (or installing the drives for that matter) that one of the drives is 2.5" and one is 3.5"??

You've limited your array to the speed of the slowest drive (2.5" 5400RPM unit in this case). It'll work but it's not ideal.

FYI here's a HDTune screenie from my pair of AAKS drives in RAID0. I actually have a pair of Seagate 320GB drives RAIDed in my workstation at work but I haven't tested that array so I cannot provide data. Will test the Seagate array tomorrow for you.

At long last...

Ran a quick HDTune on my array at work. Not sure why the results are so all over the place. System was idling while test was run. Array uses 64kb stripe.



That's two 320GB ST3320613AS drives BTW.

Nothing can compete with the Samsung F3's in terms of Speed/Capacity/Price though.

Hey MCBrown.CA I was wondering do you have your stripe size set to 64KB or is that your doing or your mobo max cuz im using my 320 seagate's in Raid0 with a size of 128Kb im also using the built in Raid tool which is just like yours its an INTEL Raid and is your Raid in 0 Raid or in like 0+1??? im only using the Raid 0 stripe size 128kb Intel Matrix Storage Raid

Oh and what is your mobo you have at work that your using for your 320 seagates and i forgot to mention i am now using 3xseagate 320 drives in raid 0 128kb stripe..

I'm about to do the Crystal DiskMark and the HD Tune Pro i just got my rig up and running again only problemim having is its all in Portuguese and i can barley understand it :/

But i already got my way in to change the Lang settings and i got it to us Inglese means English..
And i have already tried downloading the English U.S. Lang Pack from the Windows update but it fsiled to install.. I'm on Win 7 lite 32 bit.. Portuguese version

So most of my stuff online comes in English its just the destop stuff and the os stuff like the start butoon and all of that????

ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!! THANX IN ADVANCE
