    i had already posted this in this very thread.
    search for "Asus A8N32-SLI-DELUXE (1405 bios)" in THIS thread.
    http://www.nforcershq.com/forum/109-vt66299.html?postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=1080&sid=e9d48bce9cb2a805753cfe9cf636a311

    you will see around 5 or 6 links for the various drivers.
    dont feel bad i get what you get with 4 drives.
    normally in xp i get 180MB`s AVG read in hdtach or hdtune.
    even worse i usually get 200MB`s AVG read in linux.

    so im getting your (2) drive performance of around 85MB`s (which sounds good for normal 7200RPM drives) dont know about your 10,000

    i have 4 drives in raid0 and should be getting dbl your speed at least.
    these raid drivers suck!

    I know you stated you posted in and I looked all over I swear , for the life of me I couldn't find it , just get'n old I guess lol.

    Thanks for the linkage man I am on a quest for the perfect SATA driver now!! as a side note I also extracted the 15.23 driver package and updated the SATA drivers through device mgr instead of going through the whole package un-install and re-install thing as the rest of my system is running fine , seemed to update ok but my speed test went down..lol
    oh well..

    Thanks again man and sorry to bother!!

    I see people are having performance issues... Maybe you guys missed my post...

    I went & uninstalled mediashield & installed mediashield from the 9.64 package & sataraid performance is back up!

    Everyone else here hasn't had a problem with these drivers, so don't blame the drivers; There's nothing wrong with these drivers. The problem is likely on your end. :pc1:

    oh you are so wrong my friend.

    these drivers are borked from the beginning.

    i have proof to compare it also.

    what do you get for performance in a single drive? (aprox 40-60MB`s AVG read) for most users.

    when you add a 2nd drive and put that in a raid0 it will ALMOST double in speed
    if you add 2more drives to that 2 drive system it SHOULD also again ALMOST doulbe in speed.
    ex: my 4 drive raid0 setup in winxp i would get 180MBs avg the whoile time all day long and cpu usage about 15%

    same exact drives in vista and i get BARELY 100MBs (one of my drives in single non-raid = 50MBs avg read) so that makes since but 4 drives in raid0 it IS JUST WAY OFF.

    also for long time with nvidia nvraid drivers when you "RESTART" the drives were powering OFF and it would make a very slow reboot.

    nvidia has had tons of problems with these nvraid drivers for 2 years now (for vista)

    According to Everest, it does appear that HDD performance is less with the new driver.

    However, HD Tach results are quite similar.

    yea i used to get better then that in windows xp with my (4) drive raid0

    looks like you have 2 drives in a raid0 + another driver for your raid1

    whare are your drives (2 raptors)?

    Hello !

    My PC:
    Asus Crosshair Mobo
    AMD FX62
    SLI 2x Asus 8800 GTX
    Barracuda Seagate 360 GB

    I had lots of BSODs just after intall this Nforce driver on windows xp 32.
    I got dual system on computer and even when selecting Vista 32.
    I had BSODs even before windows starts.
    I had to unistall all nvidias drivers and put the 9.35 back.
    Everything ok now.
    Dont install them . My opinion.

    Regards :)

    You are correct goofy , I read through all the posts at NFHQ and then decided to test some drivers myself , the conclusion was to roll back ONLY my SATA drivers , I went back to the 830 which was on my list of available drivers in Device manager and my CPU usage went down to almost 0 and the drives run at nearly the same speed.

    Thanks for the work on the comparisons and I am sticking with these till something better comes along.

    its crazy though how all the drives start losing MB/sec as the test goes along , I guess this is normal though.

    NOTE: had to download HD Tune because the old drivers do not include the Vista Speedtest.
    NOTE2: milage may very , no 2 systems are the same.

    I updated to these new drivers on Windows XP x64 and it's great: No BOSD, no error messages, no problems.

    Ran an HD tune test on my pair of 300 GB Seagate 7200 RPM drives in RAID 0:

    HD Tune: NVIDIA STRIPE 558.92G Benchmark

    Transfer Rate Minimum : 50.8 MB/sec
    Transfer Rate Maximum : 115.6 MB/sec
    Transfer Rate Average : 92.8 MB/sec
    Access Time : 12.5 ms
    Burst Rate : 164.5 MB/sec
    CPU Usage : 3.2%

    Ran the same test on my single 1TB Seagate drive:

    HD Tune: ST31000340AS Benchmark

    Transfer Rate Minimum : 47.1 MB/sec
    Transfer Rate Maximum : 109.8 MB/sec
    Transfer Rate Average : 85.2 MB/sec
    Access Time : 12.6 ms
    Burst Rate : 61.8 MB/sec
    CPU Usage : 2.0%

    And again on my 160 GB Seagate drive:

    HD Tune: ST3160812AS Benchmark

    Transfer Rate Minimum : 34.3 MB/sec
    Transfer Rate Maximum : 63.9 MB/sec
    Transfer Rate Average : 56.7 MB/sec
    Access Time : 13.0 ms
    Burst Rate : 92.2 MB/sec
    CPU Usage : 1.9%

    All of those drives are SATA 2, on the on-board SATA controller on my ASUS P532-E SLI.

    I don't get it!?! :confused:

    Icall my results "not goog enough" and I was thinking for a long time to buy new drives.

    HD Tune 2.55 on NVIDIA STRIPE 465.77G (500 GB)
    Transfer Rate: Minimum 83.8 MB/sec
    Maximum 149.7 MB/sec
    Average 124.6 MB/sec

    Burst Rate: 136.0 MB/sec
    CPU Usage: 10.8%

    on 2x Seagate 7200.10-ST3250410AS-Sata2 @ Raid 0 on Vista 64

    650 SLI here.

    Locks up my hdds, cant copy large files across disks, slow overall performance and even system lockups.

    NOT recommended.

    edit: Unistalled but still absolutely destroyed my disks. Will probably have to reformat :(

    you both should be getting alot higher "AVG." and "BURST" on your raid0.

    a good way to test is:

    seperate the raid0 and run benchmarks on one of the drives.

    now double that score and that is "CLOSE" to what you should get in a raid0 with a pair of those drives.

    you all are VERY LUCKY you dont have 4 drives in a raid0 like i do.

    you already seen my scores.....(hdtune only getting about 85-90MBs AVG) ====HORRIBLE
    and the 40% CPU USAGE is TERRIBLE also.

    I was unable to use my Velociraptors on my nVidia Onboard Radi controller.

    With these I was able to get them both running in raid 0.

    Is it worth me installing these?

    Since my reformat i've been having alot of problems with my computer, installing files, copying over files, takes a good hour... before it only took a few minutes...?

    Currently on the nForce 9.64 XP 32bit.

    I'm down to installing these in a last attempt of hope :(
