Post Mushkin Atlas raid0
So I had bought a pair of thesea while back, hoping to use one in my EeePC and one in the litte mini foxconn box i bought, but they would work in either system

so last week I picked up a pair of these hoping i could use them as cache/log drives in my solaris file server, but the controller or solaris wouldn't recognize them, another bummer

So as I've been running windows on my i7 on this crappy old 250gb seagate drive that's noisy as all hell, I decided I would stripe them and install windows on them instead.

I decided to bench them as well, and this is what I got, from the specs of the drives, it's honestly nowhere near what I expected, but at least I don't have to listen to that noisy seagate drive so much anymore

Image

just for comparison, some numbers on the seagate 250gb drive, makes me want to cry

I'm pretty sure it should be faster, they are on a sata6g controller with the proper cables, maybe it's due to the adapters, i'm not sure, but at least they're put to use

compared to the hard drive I was using, the difference day to day is well....night and day. though the numbers are nowhere near what i was expecting to see, everything loads quick, it's responsive, and helps an i7 system feel like it has an i7

I've been running SSD's in my nix and mac systems, bout time did the same for this system

just moved my ssd raid from the marvell controller over to the intel controller and installed windows 8, which is so far tolerable on dual monitors, but i've only been on it for a couple hours

the difference in performance on the SSD's is decent enough too, still not the greatest write speeds, but keeping in mind they're mSATA drives it's not bad

Image

the real downfall is that my Mac OS won't boot anymore, it doesn't seem to like running off the intel controller in raid mode, so I guess i'll need to build another i7 box to run mac os for all my audio production needs and get away from this cumbersome dual booting business.

building another box would give me an excuse to get a GTX660 something

edit// got mac OS fixed, switched it over to the marvell controller and it's booting fine. no optical drive access, but meh
