Looking to switch ports for raid... need advice.


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

I am currently running 2 x 1tb Samsung's in Raid 1 on ports 0 & 1 (Sata 3 ports) with a SSD on port 2 (Sata 2 port) running as cache on my Z68 board.

The question is, Will i see a substantial performance increase if i switch the SSD to port 0 (sata 3) and move the raid to sata 2 ports?
Also if I do this will it break the raid beyond repair?

Windows 7 takes 10 seconds to bring up the login screen after the bios has done its stuff.
Should i bother is the big question? smile

Thanks,

Louis

Is it working?

Can you find something practical to do in ten seconds?

My non SSD single drive boot take 40 seconds from power switch to splash, including BIOS. I rarely reboot, but when I do a reboot, I usually brew up.

Looks like a faster kettle is your biggest worry. tongue

I've just moved back to HDD from SSD owing to persistent bad blocks. I haven't measured it but I can't say I've noticed much difference in boot times. I'm staying with hard disks for the time being.
