I bought an Abit SA6R last year purely to use the RAID striping capability, as this is a secondary PC that I didn't want to shell out and get SCSI for. The manual is utter crap and doesn't mention anything about how to set up the array, so I muddled through it and it seemed to work. I've never been happy with the performance, given it's using ATA100 disks and seems to be barely faster than my old ATA66 single-drive system. I got hold of the Sandra benching utility the ther day and ran it, and was shocked. The "Disk Index" was 5000-ish, and the number provided for the comparison with an equivalent system was ~36000. After a clean Windows install this has increased to 12000-ish, but this is still way below what I expect. Does anyone know what might be up? Oh and please don't post if you're just going to say "RAID is shit....blah blah blah" - thats not any use to me now!
