  1. Actually those benchmark numbers are old. They were taken when I was using a different motherboard (the ASUS P5N-T Deluxe, nvidia 780i chipset). It unfortunately is quite a P.O.S. Here are the benchmark numbers I get with my current motherboard (the ASUS P5K-E WiFi): *************************************** Read file: D:\Temp\DiskBench1.bin Size: 1073741824 bytes Time: 750 ms Transfer Rate: 1365.333 MB/s Read File Bench ended *************************************** Created file: D:\Temp\DiskBench1.bin Size: 1073741824 bytes Time: 7244 ms Transfer Rate: 141.011 MB/s Create File Bench ended *************************************** They are a little better.

  2. Hey everyone. First post I have the Promise ex8350 and have had a positive experience with it. I have two RAID's on it at the moment. - a boot RAID-0 made of 2 x WD Raptor 74gb - a data RAID-5 made of 6 x Seagate 320gb 7200.10 I have used it with the following O/S's without problems: - XP Pro x86 SP2 - XP Pro x86 SP3 beta - XP Pro x64 SP2 - Vista x86 (without SP1...before SP1 was out) - Vista x64 SP1 I have some benchmark numbers. This was on my RAID-5 array and under XP Pro SP2 at the time. The RAID-5 is partitioned as a single 1.6 TB logical disk, is formatted NTFS, and uses a 64k stripe. I used a free benchmark program called "DiskBench" (found here: http://www.nodesoft.com/DiskBench/Default.aspx). *********************************************************************** Starting Create File Bench...
