Underperforming hard drives Tags: Hard Drives Storage Last response: January 10, 2007 11:07 PM in Storage Share Ciaran January 10, 2007 11:48:23 AM Hey, I've got two Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 8MB ST3200827AS, on an nVidia RAID 0 array and a 32K stripe. The motherboard is an Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe. Perhaps I'm just being a little unfair on the drives - I mean, they are wonderful drives - but have a look at this benchmark that I obtained from HD Tune... Is it just me, or does this seem a little show? Are my drives underperforming?

MrCommunistGen January 10, 2007 11:07:12 PM I'm not sure what my stripe size is, but my RAID seems to "underperform" as well. I posted about this a while ago, and someone suggested that it was the NForce RAID controller not being up to the task. -mcg Can't find your answer ? Ask !
