  1. I found this thread after having problems with my nforce raid 5 array. It is very slow. I ran HD Tune and got very erratic results. Huge spikes with lows in the 7s up to the 120s. I read that HD Tune isn't great with arrays, but I couldn't find the ATTO Benchmark that some of you seem to use. Anyways, I have 4 500GB Hitachi drives forming a RAID 5 array. This motherboard, ASUS P5N-E SLI with nforce 650i SLI and 430i, has 4 channels Serial ATA with RAID 0, 1, 0+1, 5 support. I have the latest drivers installed. Vista 32. If I understand this all okay, I am not going to be able to get much speed out of this current configuration. I don't game, I am a professional photographer who set this up about 14 months ago for 1.5GB storage with redundancy. Since my mobo only supports 4 drives, what is the best thing to do at this point? Buy two 1.5GB drives and set up a raid 1? Or buy another 500GB drive and a RAID card (which one) for five disk RAID 5 array? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks, Seder
