So a friend of mine somehow convinced me to do a bit crazy storage upgrade (since im waiting on the next nvidia and intel series before updating other things). So, i decided to do a 4 way 240gb SSD raid 0 array(with a 64k stripe size) and... im getting wat feel like worse speed then when i had a single SSD.
I understand that my boot time should be a bit slower since im using a raid card for the raid array and it needs time to initialize. but it feels as though my computer is acting sluggish. I've run CrystalDiskMark and its showing a very low increase in read speeds and double in write speed.
PS: im running the array on a fresh windows install (windows 7 64-bit)
PS2: incase anyone asks, the reason im using a raid card is becuase my mobo does support 4 way raid but if i do so the remaining 2 sata ports are only able to be used in IDE mode, and since i wanna keep hot-swappability with my hdd i cant do IDE mode, however i have no qualms with moving my HDD to the raid card and the SSDs to the mobo if it will help my speeds.
Thanks again for any help.
