Just put together my first build a few weeks ago. Everything went well no real troubles so far. I'm now in the process of learn to benchmark and tweak everything.
I just ran HD Tune one minute and it showed:
Min - 123.4 MB/s
Max - 224.7 MB/s
Average 193.5 MB/s
I'm using 3 SAMSUNG Spinpoint F4 HD322GJ/U 320GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive in RAID 0. I can't help but think it should be a little higher but then again I'm fairly new to the in depth computer world.
Is there anything I can do to boost performance of my RAID 0 set up?
Should I be happy with the results?
Was a minute long enough to determine a good speed?
Also, during the minute run it had a large down spike to the 125 MB/s range then worked it's way back up to around 190 - 200 range again. Is that normal?
Enough of my elementary ranting now. Feel free to prod. I appreciate any help. Thanks
