you cant really... but if you get a few fast drives and whack them in RAID, then keep the SPi installation towards the start of the disc (it reads/writes faster on the outside of the disc) you'll get better act times compared to a crowded single disc... this only helps to a point tho... i think i calculated that the limit for the HDD speed for my setup (3.85GHz and 1028MHz on the mem @ 5-5-4-14) was about 129MB/s, beyond that it wont help at all (if you've got a faster CPU or memory tho, you'll be able to get more outta higher speeds)

thats not ocing dude, raid just improves the efficiency of read, (not sure about write) it's not like the hdd is running faster.
