Hi,
First of all I must say I saw the Raid Matrix charts, and it seems amazing the performance increase from 2HDs RAID0 to 4HDs RAID0. I was thinking of buying 4 Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200.12 and put them in RAID0 using the ICH9R. Is the ICH9R capable to handle with 400MB/s without lags and performance loss?
I would like to ask what is the hardware tom's hardware use for RAID Matrix Charts too. Is it a pci SATA controller, mobo controller or software controller?
Thx.

I'm not sure about ICH9R, but the 7200.12 has a record for unreliability. Search for that hard disk on the forums, and you'll see what I mean!

i think you meant the 7200.11, the .12's are usually fine

Exactly, version .12 doesn't have firmware problems.

4 hard drives in raid 0 means 4 times as much chance of losing all your data if a single drive fails .

the seagates might not be the fastest option since WD black and samsung both make faster drives , but then again in a raid array anything can happen

I don't care about the data, only about the transfer speed. I looked the HDs 3,5" charts, here, and the Seagate 500GB 7200.12 leads all the tests, except the response time.
