32 or 64 Bit?

Here is quickbench 4.0 benchmark results from 2 x 480G Intel 520 SSD running Raid 0.
So far so good ....
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.
