Sorry about not replying earlier. I fell a sleep, LOL! Yes, the 6.1 WEI is about right. I told ya it takes a minute to figure it out, but once you do, its actually easy. You just have to make sure you have the drivers. My Seagate SATA 7200k drives were only 5.9. If you really want some high speed, install a SSD hdd, like one of the original OCZ Vertex 2 SSDs with the 32 NAND flash chips. I have a OCZ Agility 2 128gb SSD drive and got a 7.6 WEI rating and it's blazing fast. My RAID 0 is now my storage drives and the SSD is the OS drive. If you add one, you need to change the IDE setting to SATA, unplug the RAID drives, install Win7, getting it up and running, shutdown, reconnect the RAID drives, then change the IDE setting to AHCI and set the SSD as your boot drive. Reboot and see how fast your computer is then. The RAID array will still operate in the OS as RAID 0, just ignored as a bootable array with AHCI setting. Once you go SSD, you'll never want anything less.

Sort that out and should be working and sweet.


I just remember it not allowing me to install or it saying it couldn't find the driver I gave it.

Or it said it wasn't the right one. I can't remember exactly. but I do remember getting the drivers from the Gigabyte website. Ill have to try that tonight and run it bare for a while so i can come back here and ask more questions if I need to.

Oh and BTW +1
What motherboard are you using and OS? I can try to locate the right drivers for it. If it's Win7, they can be loaded from the motherboard driver cd directly, you just have to know what folder they are in on the cd.

that is basically what I said before, mine did the same thing even though. Mine said it didn't find any drivers.


1> I got them from GIGABYTE

2> I got the right ones



I am using the GA-790XTA-UD4 - win 7 pro 64. Also trust me I have downloaded the right ones.

So you installed two identical SATA drives on the correct ports, set the IDE to RAID, built the RAID 0 array in bios with no other drives attached to the SATA ports and set them as the boot drive (you should only see one drive as a RAID array, not two separate drives), loaded Win7 install CD for install and get a pop up for RAID drivers and cannot load them what so ever? It should see the drivers, but may say they are not signed and possibly ask for 32 bit drivers as well. If so, make sure you have both types ready. It should see the drives as one drive and then you can format and set active partition and proceed with OS install.

thanks guys finally got it to work

this is hdtune benchmark I just did. is this normal?

post #28 of 33
Yeah, that's how the graph usually looks. The speeds are fine also. I would have to check mine again to see for comparison, but it looks fine overall. I like using RAID 0 for large file extractions and par file use. Even for ISO image files.

OK I will give that a go, the rest I am familiar with but I got to the driver install and that was it. I'll give it a crack.


Soz double post.

I'll download both 32 and 64 bit drivers, just to be Irish (to be sure, to be sure, to be sure). will get back to you guys on the other side.


But I don't know if it was worth it, crystal mark says 220 MB/ps and HD tune says 128MB/ps, whats the go?



edit:

Many thanks, it worked for me this time. + rep coming your way
