I saw your posts in the other thread but you should probably explain your setup before being called a faker

I thought that's what the "My System Specs" link was for...

But if it's required:

9x Intel 34nm 160 GB X25-M SSDs on an Areca 1231ml card w/4GB buffer in RAID6. I'll be adding a tenth drive soon (it's on its way). I believe the tenth drive will max out the PCI-E x8 1.0 bandwidth limit of the card.

The Areca card lets me add drives, expiriment with different stripe sizes, switch from RAID0 to RAID10 or RAID6, etc without re-installing Windows or anything else (data is automatically migrated in the BIOS).

I use this fast RAID to decode LA traces for work. With conventional hard drives the decoding of a 16 GB trace takes 6 to 10 hours. With my RAID array the same trace takes two to three minutes (although admittedly, my SW is optimized for SSD drives, taking full advantage of the fast seek times. It also takes adavantage of Nvidia CUDA to help decode some of the transactions).

Also here's a link to a screen shot showing off my system w/other benchmarks...

I think that's the screenshot they had in mind when they invented the word "killer system."
Nice!

Just found out how to enable AHCI and these are my results seem to be better then before

Perhaps you experts can tell me if this is what I should be getting.

That looks good Steve

AHCI does seem to get better scores.
