      What drives did you get?

      You can't brag effectively without giving links for others to drool over :D

        It's not like you have the fastest drives in the world. :p

        Your write speeds must be something like 160 MB/s and around 250 MB/s burst.

          Couldnt find them on newegg as I got them from Dell to add to the warranty of my T3400. But here is Seagate's website link:

          I have 2 of them in a raid 0, I may get to more and stripe my OS as well.

            :) Somehow I guessed you had a pair of Cheetahs.

            Have you measured to see what your actual write speed and burstable write speed is?

                HD Tune. That's the best one that I've used.

                  Pride will be crushed when SSDs come down in price, and some of us nab a pair and RAID them. :)

                        Wow. Is thate 249.8 MB/s the highest write speed or the average write speed?

                          Oh wait you know I think I messed up I think. I need to run that test again as I dont think it was read/write. I think that was min/max of either read or write. So here are the results. It just says Transfer rate min/max I guess thats write? My 80GB SATA drive gets 49.7/57.6 compared to 183.5/249.8 that the SAS RAID got. Doesnt tell me seek times (using the free version)

                            Trying doing the File test.

                            And the free version might not tell you write speeds (since its free). You'll probably have to get the paid version.
