I bet your antivirus is bottlenecking your system or there is something wrong with your OS and driver setup. I did my own tests with 1,2 and 3 60gb vertexes. and got a lot better scores and a lot better scaling with more drives. Virtually identical computers too. I was running Win7 x64 RTM. My boot times were 11, 22 and 30 seconds. Just looking at your iometer tests tells me something is up. Your sequential read scores should be at least twice that and damn near saturating the 600mbs peak of the ich10r chipset.

One tweak most users are missing is to go into the intel matrix storage manager, look at the properties of your array and enable write caching. Doing that via the device manager does nothing for an array.
