i found this thread looking for raptor raid0 benchies and setup info.very very promising,even tho they did say the intel sata is the better controller made.i just hope my SI sata cortoller is up to the challenge.

some good news from newegg.

pretty sweet, those write times are 2x my RAID 0 setup (2 80gb 8mb maxtors).
how do those raptors sound? i.e. like a normal IDE drive, or a cross between IDE and 10k SCSI?

I just got my first raptored delivered just now. I'll be ordering another one soon, should get my next direct deposit anyday now.

I heard that the Sil controller built into many of nForce 2 motherboards dont play nice in RAID especially in WinXP. So Im considering buying a Highpoint or Promise Controller card instead. Any thoughts to which is better?

mine will be here tomorow at 4:30 est long as fedex dont screw up again.:D

how do they sound? ive heard anything thing from high pitched whine to dead silent. ill have to find out for myself, and post that info.

ive had the issues with SI controller also.im hoping it will play nice now i have a non adapted sata drive.
ive heard the highpoint is just an adapted ide card so id look at the promise.might be the same way also i dont know.

adaptec and 3ware have good ones ive read also but expensive.

im expecting a 50% increase over my ide raid0 setup i was running. 65000-85000 sandra marks is my goal.
i was getting 42000-56000 sandra marks with my sata adaptted raid0 setup.

yes jdlt1 the drives look great.but the problem is getting them to run in raid0 as noone yet has reported perfect success with their controllers.

im expecting alot of bugs and corruptions so im prepared for crap.
but it better be fast and then i can deal with str8ning the corruptions out.
