You won't get higher than a 5.9 with a mechanical hard drive. Want to go higher, have to go with Solid State Drives -SSD's.
How does RAID 0 optimize your speed with the drives? I'd love to get another one in the near future.
When it writes data to the drive, it will write parts of files to both drives.
The main drawback to raid 0 is that when 1 drive fails, you will lose all of the data that is on both.
