If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer.
Hi - This is my first post in this forum so be gentle..
I carefully looked over your link and everything you posted and have some questions that I hope will help me sort out some questions about my own system.
You're showing a seq read speed of over 400mbps.. What is the cap on bandwidth of your RAID card and what RAID card are you using? If you're simply using the motherboards RAID chip and with SATA II ports then maybe this answers my questions below.
The 400mpbs speeds give me pause after seeing your Win7 Index score of 7.7. My single SSD (Crucial C300) running through a 6g/ps SATA III port is benchmarking at an average of 354mbps with peaks of up to 390.. and is scoring 7.9 on the Win7 index score.
I've always wondered what the Windows Index is actually measuring in each area, and in this case there appears to be something wonky in the Index if you're RAID is truly pushing over 400mbps seq reads and getting 7.7, and mine is pushing significantly less and getting 7.9.
Also kind of curious if mine is 'just' 7.9, or some score over the max it displays. I suppose we'll have to wait for Win8 to find out.. ;o)
About some other posts in the thread. Be careful with running benchmark utilities too often. The rapid rate of reads/writes is exactly the sort of activity that slows down SSD's over time, but benchmark utilities will accelerate this process faster than the wear leveling TRIM can keep up. (from the mouths of Crucial and Intel tech support). Which also makes me hesitant to enable my page files on the SSD.. which I'm not sure are necessary any longer in a system with 10gb's+ of RAM and a SSD..
Overall I'm very happy with my C300, but I caution potential adopters to not expect too much. After all, any decent SATA II HDD is at the 120mbps mark, many of the entry level SSD's are barely reaching the same speeds. The top SSD's are only 3-4 times faster.. so a program that takes 2 seconds to load now takes .5 secs.. you've gotta ask yourself if its worth the cost. Older SATA and SATA II drives (those purchases over 2 years ago) are in the 40-50mbps range.. so even a simple HDD upgrade would give bargain performance gains.
