ok, sorry for the wrong post in the thread, i'll do it again
first of all, very nice article, but i think i'm missing something, in a 3-drive (160GB segate) RAID5 array (nForce570 ultra) i can only write with an average of ~3MB/s on my drive!
- made my raid5 stripe size 32k
- did the partition offset (3 partitions: the first is shifted @ 2048 sectors instead of 63, the second is booting my xp, and the third holding my data)
- resized my NTFS cluster to 64k
i mean i see no difference between my old array and this new one using HD Tune ...
