It would seem that I really need that SSD upgrade now. It doesn't even make sense to have my OS on the VelociRaptor if it hadn't already been there. Is there something wrong with my VelociRaptor maybe?

WD Velociraptor 300GB (OS and program files, independent drive):

Samsung F3 1TB x2 (Storage only, RAID1)

My F3 gets 140mb/s as well, I'm a little surprised that it's faster than your WD Raptor. Have you tried benching it in HD tune?

Here they are in HD Tune. They appear a little closer here, but the Samsungs are still besting my 10000rpm VelociRaptor in transfer rate but not access time.

It's a single Raptor, about 1 1/2 to 2 years old now.

Yeah, I have no idea bro. New bios on the drive maybe might help.

Meh... I'm hoping to get an SSD in the next few months anyways. Just thought it was odd.

If anyone else here has some VelociRaptor benches I'd be curious to see them though.

The velociraptor will have much faster loading times but when it comes to file transfer the F3's will own it. It's still a good OS drive. I get great boot times.

Your raid is really slow. I get 107mb/s A second with only 1 drive.
I seen people with 2 drives in raid with over 200mb/s a second average.

I have a RAID1 (data mirroring), which might give only a slight boost to read speeds depending on your controller, no gain to write is even possible as all data is written to both drives. It's for data protection, not speed. You're probably thinking of a RAID0 (data striping) where the data is split up into stripes between the two drives to optimize speed. However, with RAID0 if only one of the drives fails, all data is lost.
