i just installed 2 of the extreme series 32gb drives in raid 0 on my machine. when i do my check the benchmarks the numbers i'm getting back are not what i expected 227 read and 197 write were the best i came up with. i read somewhere that my motherboard sata is limited to 300mb/s so i think that i should be able to max that out with what i've bought. any suggestions

SATA II maxes out at about 260MB/s once you account for protocol headroom, but that's a theoretical maximum at any rate. Once you factor in differences in chipsets, drives, and OS drivers those numbers may trail off quite a bit.

 

Denzigi, do you have the drives set up to use 32k allocation units? Fire up chkdsk in the command prompt if you're not sure.
