Well I got me hands on another sata Harddisk so decided to put it in with me other one in raid.

I have : 1 80gb Western Digital Caviar, 1 160gb maxtor sata drive.

I set them up in a striped raid, and it worked!

I installed vista n stuff, which seems snappier than before, and file copying seems quicker (getting about 28 mb/s).

My score with just the wd drive was 5.6, but now my hard drive score in vista is only 5.4 - why is this?

Thanks

Tim

Its normal I think because U use integrated raid controller,and these much slover then the branded PCI card controllers with own PU and cache. Otherwise U just got a little as 0.2 different this is may come from because of the driver. Finally the stripped raid should faster then a single drive,but its depending where U use it...

BTW, I tend to disagree with what you're saying because on-board RAID controllers in the southbridge are much faster than RAID controllers hanging off of the conventional PCI bus.
