2 wd2500ks's and 1 wd2500js RAID0!
I'm running a raid 0 array with 2 wd2500ks's @ 16mb cache and 1 wd2500js with 8mb of cache and it's running pretty good. Almost seems the same performance as the 2500ks's alone though. Performance on HDtune is better but idk. In vista transfer from 1tb to raid is 115MB/s and transfer to 1tb from raid can go to 180MB/s then stablize at 110MB/s. I wonder why this is? Isn't read and write supposed to be really fast? I'm gonna bench in Sisoft sandra to see more plausible results but i was expecting triple performance. Also with the 2 drive raid i had the same 115-120MB/s write but it would stabilize at 95MB/s. Now i'm getting consistent 115-120MB/s. Is the JS only helping 20MB/s? LOL IDK what to think is this even worth it for the possible stability issues? It's perfectly stable anyway.
