I've decided to set up raid 0 on my pc via motherboard's controller. I did evrything the manual says and it was ok, I set up win7, drivers games programs, and than i noticed that my WINDOWS EXPERIENCE INDEX remains the same like before (5.9).
Is it ok or maybe i did something wrong during raid setup? (the only things i changed it was "STRIPPING" -changed from JBOD, and set STRIPPING BLOCK SIZE to 128k - changed from optimal. also i made it bootable.
the HDDs i used are 2 identical WD CAVAIR BLACK 640 GB 32mb cache.

Thank You very much!

I've seen other people complain about the same thing.
Run some other benchmarks on your drives.
Tell us about the results.

linear read (end) 114613kb/s
random read 154539kb/s

are there other tools to check hdd's performance?

Seems okay to me.
Try IOMeter.
