does partitioning your raid 0 array drive negate the performance increase? There was a brief mention of that in this months maximum pc mag.

i have never noticed a performance hit. I have a 10 GB partition for my OS, and one other huge partition for storage. No probs so far.

I also have 2 partitions on my array. I never tried it with just one partition so I'm not sure if there is a performance hit.
