System: Asus P6T7 WS, I7email@example.comGHz, 12GB
Storage: 6x OCZ Solid2 30GB @RAID5 on ICH10R (write caching enabled)
Raid array is under-partitioned to provide room for idle garbage collection (Solid2 uses indilinx like Vertex)
Array has been in use for 5 months as Win7 OS drive, no maintenance whatsoever has been done since.
Writes suck but I knew that upfront when I decided on RAID5, redundancy is more important as speed for me.
I also have an Areca 1220 in the same machine but all its ports are in use so I can't test RAID5 performance on that.
Just decided to register and post this because there seem to be no benches on big raid arrays using cheap SSD's.
I'm looking to get a Areca 1880 eventually + even more SSD's, should be interesting.
