Very good! Have you looked at write performance? If so please post it.

What I'm finding is that you can't do a write test. Here is a thread [ame=""]Intel SSD (X25-E & X-25M) RAID 0 Benchmarks - Page 2 - XtremeSystems Forums[/ame]

quote: Hey guys, I just received my pair of X-25M SSD's from newegg. I ran HD Tune read test and got max 539 mb/s, min 397.6 mb/s, and 514.2 mb/s average. 1996.1 Mb/s burst rate.

This was on a ICH10R on a Gigabyte X58-UD5. I could not seem to use the write test. When I tried to use it, HD Tune would tell me that "Writing is disabled. To enable writing please remove all partitions. Please check the manual for more information" Does any one know what the issue is?

Yes, if you read the error message carefully, you will see that the answer is included in the error message: you need to remove any partitions from the RAID0 array.
If you already installed your OS on it, you cannot run the write tests.
If your OS is still on another HDD, then go to Disk Management, delete the partition(s)/volume(s) from the RAID0 array and run the HDTune write benchmark.

Maybe somebody here on the forum with more knowledge than I, can shed some light on this.

I'm familiar with HD Tune having used that for some time now. This is the results on the 7 32bit/XP dual boot sata drive here.
