    Cables

    What type (manufacturer) of cables did you use and where did you order them from?

    32 or 64 Bit?

    Good to see this is working now. I have late 2011 MBP 8,2 and tried this before but the RAID 0 was very unstable and did not work. The RAID drive would disappear and reappear in finder and Disk Utility showed it as an invalid drive. I was booted into Snow Leopard 64 Bit kernel at the time, but never tried 32 Bit. What kernel were you booted into when you got these results?

    RAID 0 MBP 15" & 17" 6GB Link Speed Achieved

    My suspicions have been confirmed about the unreliably of the 6gb link speed for MBP in the Optibay of being EMI related. I am trying this shielding method now, but not to this man's extremes. I'll let you know how my less intrusive method works.You can check out his link here.

    Damn that's nice. What about real-world speeds though? Does every program open instantly without bouncing on the dock?
