    As the title says. 64k or 128k? Those are the only 2 options I have in my raid setup. Which offers the best performance?

    Thanks.

    128 stripe. Files are big now so bigger stripe gives better performance.

    Intel recommends 128K for RAID0 and RAID5 in the Matrix Storage Manager documentation. Should be the same for AMD chipset.

    Last I read about RAID 0 said something along the lines of Larger stripe size = better performance but wastes the most space

    Smaller size = less performance, better use of space

    ssd (use max stripe size. hdd (varies depends on setup+ file sizes in use.. )

    hdd (2+ raid) boot up win7 (64k stripe best)

    large files(movies+dvd-scratch disk-rec blur ray) largest stripe possible

    it varies with no+ hdd vs raid type vs what most acess on drive(get best speed etc)

    I "believe"...in general...

    larger sizes improve test score performaces, but may be somewhat wasteful in storage use.

    Smaller size is more efficent in using the storage space, but may be a bit slower in benchmarks.

    I am about to add a lsi raid card and a total of "4" F3 60 gig corsair drives.

    Yes, it's not about storage size, but speed...D'AH!

    When the raid card comes and I install it, I will see my see size options.
    (Yeah, I "WILL" probably go for the larger/fastrer sector sizing)
