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?
