Nope, the LSI SAS controller, model 1068e. It uses a Pci-express 8x bus.

What did you short stroke your HDD's to? Its probably in one of your posts, but I don't feel like going back and reading it all again.

Its getting to be a rather long thread, hehe. All four drives are the new Seagate 7200.12 500Gb drives that were all short stroked to 10% capacity by using seatools. I know what you must be thinking - "Zomg! He's totally watch 1.8 Tera!" but I never really use all the space on my drives. In fact, in my last system which was a raid 0 using two regular 500Gb drives, I never used more than 10% of the total available space. So have 200Gigs of 500Mbps if fine by me (And Still cheaper than most SSDs - faster too!)

I dont agree with the faster than SSD part, it really depends on what you are looking for. But this is not the point of the post here.

Really nice build, interesting idea. Can I ask the final price ? Also, any OC support or you are running them stock ?

That are pretty sweet results you got there . But now, get some Vantage, 3Dmark, PCMark scores up! .

matsta31 made me cry ... kidding kidding, hehe. SSDs are still faster for access time and random reads. But for $200 - 200Gigs @ 500Megs/sec is pretty darn good. In terms of price versus performance and size, i think this is a great option .

Final cost will be coming soon... (still need to buy a couple fans, hehe)

Edit: OC support does not really exist on server boards. But I might try pushing the HT link.... we'll see
