    I have 2 Maxtor +40 ata/100 7200rpm 20 gig drives connected to an Abit HotRod/100 card set to Raid0.
    Post your benchmarks to compare.

    Ok pretty impressive My old IBM 15 gig will never keep up. But then again after several years of upgrading changing parts so much I bought a case without bolts for the side covers. I have finally added something to my computer worth bragging about [​IMG]

    New case

    When using HD tach what does the CPU utilization mean?

    And also how come your graphs are so smooth, I was running seagate 7200rpm, 30.6 GB HD and the graph showed a very bumpy line averaging at 24mbps, with it tailing off quite badly after 25GB.

    I am also running ABIT kt7 motherboard.

    Chris, I think you have a great idea there !!! LOL - never thought of that one !

    Knowley,
    For some reason HDTach will only check the first 8 gig of the Raid0 setup. If I attempt to have it test the whole 40 gig the blue screen of death shows up. My drives used to be connected to the Promise Fasttrak/100 and the results were just like you explained yours does. Since I installed the HotRod/100 and installed the latest bios and drivers from Highpoint the results improved greatly . I have noticed a big difference in speed of bootup and starting programs and also defraging the drive (12 min).
    CPU utilization is how much the cpu is being used while the hard drive is reading or writing data. The lower the cpu usage the better.
