    Z68 SSD Cache - The Only Way to Fly (lazy man SSD)

    I can second this, and will be running the same exact setup and found this thread. Debating over whether to scrap my current windows installation and RAID up with my M4 as the cache, or to use the M4 as the OS and load my oodles of games from the HDD.. the latter, while seeming the obvious...

    RAID5, NTFS and Dynamic Disk Problem

    I recently stumbled upon a true "software" RAID solution called FlexRAID, created by one of the members of this forum. I was wondering if anyone has used this, if it's reliable, and if there are any other packages around that offer a sort of driverless RAID solution. Much like dynamic disks, but...

    RAID5, NTFS and Dynamic Disk Problem

    Thanks for the reply. Whether or not the metadata is stored on the drives themselves is exactly what I'm wondering, more or less. With the NVRAID system, I know for a fact that the system, if set up for RAID on those particular ports, will piece together the array on an entirely new motherboard...

    RAID5, NTFS and Dynamic Disk Problem

    Hey all, I have (or had) a 3x750GB RAID5 array set up on an nForce 780i motherboard, using nVidia's RAID5. Upon setting up the array I thought it was hardware RAID, and was thus surprised when the performance sucked, but that's quite a while ago. I recently bought a 4th 750GB drive, hoping...
