I have a friend who has it. It's pretty cool. Extremely fast. It does almost sound like a SCSI HD, however.

I have dual WD 10k rpm 36GB Raptors in a RAID0 and it's pretty fast (~107MB/sec in ATTO), but it would be faster if my SATA controller wasn't running on the PCI bus. :(

No, I'm using the one built on the mobo, but it actually runs off the PCI bus. That along with the myriad other devices sucks the 133MB/sec bandwidth (33Mhz x 32 bit) the PCI bus is capable of.

If I had known, I might not have spent the extra $$$ for Raptors since they aren't being used to their full advantage. Oh well, maybe my next mobo will be better.

For the ones that are using SATA drives, do you use the cables that come with the drive / motherboard or do you buy a different one?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
