Holy f**k, how many raptors have you got in that array? 900+MB/s is very nice for HDD's

The amount you spent, you could have gotten a Revo II drive and been faster and better performance. The access time on your drives is a meager 5.5ms. Great results though.

I've spent $630,so cost was not a concern. I'll run the 6 Raptors until I decide to get something else, then each of my kids will get an upgrade of 2 Velociraptors each in their computers.

QD scores are low..... you could post a screenie too to make it easier. 1 SSD still offers better all around performance..IMO

You're missing the point. I DO NOT want an ssd right now. I bought these to be different, have a little fun, and then pass them to kids computers when I decide to upgrade.

I'd be curious to see what kind of speeds you would get with a RAID 10. :toast:

Redundancy, 3 drives in RAID0 being mirrored (RAID1) to the other 3 drives in RAID0.
Would be a fun little exercise, but it would not be as fast as having all 6 in RAID0.

I actually appreciate threads like this. SSD's are all that and a cup of coffee...but....I miss the sound of my raided arrays crunching away. Perhaps it's just for nostalgia sake, or I'm old fashioned...I don't know.

I've got a couple of 80gb Raptors from HP lying around...and after looking at them on ebay, I can buy them for 20-30 bucks, I may just get motivated to playing around with a raid array myself.

Please continue to post your experiences with your setup, I for one...enjoy reading threads along this line.

I have an extra(well many extras)LGA 775 socket set ups lying around, I'll probably do it in one of these. What are the specs of the pc you're using?

Best,

Liquid Cool

Thanks a lot :) I've had a blast playing with the raid set up. I'm not sure what else I could do other than maybe add one of those 512 cache raid controller cards. They are expensive and really not sure what it would gain me over my onboard raid. My system specs are in my signature.
