RAID 5 on EVGA X58 SLi

Recommended Posts

i picked up my LSI for $150 on ebay new, check it out, raid-5 runs like a charm at 900mb/s peak.

I'm assuming you are talking burst rates...no way would 3 normal 750 GB drives get even close to a third of that sustained.

yeah, for sustained it's 150-300mb/s depending on the file. since i work with movie files i set the block size to 1mb which helps alot in moving large files.

Yeah I ran Raid 5 for awhile on my 680i and it was noticeably slower... and while I have had drives die on me I always back up my stuff anyways. So I said the heck with it and made a RAID-0 instead.
