Windows 7: System Rating Slower with RAID-0

30 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
System Rating Slower with RAID-0

Greetings from New Zealand,

I recently purchased a second WD Raptor 74GB ADFD hard drive to use in a RAID-0 configuration, using the Intel ICH10R chipset. When installing Windows 7 on the single Raptor Windows Performance Index gave the Hard Disk a rating of 5.9. With the RAID-0 setup, Windows Performance Index gives the Hard Drive a rating of only 5.6. I have the latest Intel drivers installed, and have Write Back Cache enabled.

Am I doing something wrong? I should also point out the Intel recently released new drivers and a program that replaces the Matrix Storage Manager called Rapid Storage Technology, which I installed.

I sincerely appreciate any assistance anyone can provide.
