Please help with my new builds raid0 performance:(

I just built a system using two Samsung F3 500GB in raid 0. Are these good numbers, they seem a little low to me? Maybe I have some setting wrong. I would post a pic but I don't know how to post a picture from my desktop here. Can someone tell me how to take a picture from my desktop and paste it here?

Minimum 111
Maximum 195.4
Average 167.2
Access Time 13.8 ms
Burst rate 122.7
CPU usage -1.0%


My system
I7-860
Gigabyte P55A UD4P
XFX 5970 Black Edition
G Skill 1600 2 x 2GB
Silverstone 750 silver certified power supply
ASUS 25.5 1900 X 1200 monitor
Cooler Master ATCS 840
Corsair H50 CPU Cooler
Windows 7 Ultimate 64

  1. how many times did you run?

    the access time seems a wee bit sluggish but if those rates are in MB/sec, they seem plenty snappy.

    Perhaps a nice SSD, or two?

  2. btw ... what sector size did you choose?

    it matters.
  3. I just ran the default HD tune pro test, its the trial version. I only ran it once. I'll try to run it a couple of times and see if i get any different results.
  4. should vary with drive synch ... a tiny bit.

    larger sector sizes (NTFS, not FAT32) will get you better streaming rates and, possibly slightly better latency (access times).

  6. According to the test done by Toms the access time seems to be about right.
