Well I changed pace...went with 2 80gb intels.... questionable performance. I mean this is awesome no doubt, but I expected almost twice the bandwidth
I expected higher...and it's just not the snappiness I expected. I have a 40gb kingston (the knock-off Intel) in my desktop and windows loads faster, firefox pops up, my siderbar etc instantly. It seems to lag slightly in this setup, although it is faster.
Any thoughts? My chipset has the latest drivers, it's an ICH8M with matrix RAID...
I tried both 64bit and 128bit sectors (read 64 was the best...had similiar results (maybe a tad higher), but still limited.
