My System Specs


Alright, interesting to hear another viewpoint on this. To be honest I've only done 2 installs of Vista and hadn't noticed anything (or never thought about it) regarding short stroking. I just decided to RAID 5 instead.

One thing I noticed is that on the Seagate Barracuda SATA drives it comes stock with a jumper on it that limits it to a compatibility mode. According to HD Tach my thruput almost doubled on my RAID after removing these jumpers from all my drives.

Results from "Long Bench" on my system after pulling the jumpers...
