Default M64 RAID0 performance issues

I'm having some trouble getting my ssd raid performing.

I set the stripe size to 128k, set the alignment using diskpart at 128 as well. Did the tweaks as described in the ******** forums, have not set up a RAM disk yet. I'm looking at multiple minute boot times and severe lagging in windows, especially with driver installations. Even after installing the RAID controller drivers, this thing won't speed up. Haven't run any benchmarks yet, but it isn't tough to bench a snail.

Any thoughts?

Just ran HDTune for kicks, I'm seeing ~36mb/s read. That is not good.

Update:

I flashed the BIOS on the ECS mobo to the latest version, and that fixed everything. Enabled write-back caching, now I'm seeing ~264 mb/s max. Woo!

Is this decent for a 2x M64 RAID0, or is write-back caching more of a detriment? I've heard both ways.

Just test it both ways see what gives the best results, I would suspect with it enabled will yield the best.
