    Hey guys,
    I finally got everything in. Now, the only thing that has been added to truly improve performance is the Intel X-25M Gen 2 SSD 80GB. I also added an extra superdrive, extra monitor, and put the Nvidia GT120 back in(to drive the 3rd monitor) but I don't think those helped my benchmarks that much :p. Anyway, any questions ask away. I can different do tests if you would like. But, I ran Xbench after a fresh time machine install. Lastly, this drive has only 20GB used on it.

    Awesome... your small 4K reads with a single drive beat my RAID0 array of Gen1 drives. :eek: Everything else is about par.

    EDIT: On second thought, I doubt my RAID0 array would help 4k reads at all given I'm using a 128K stripe. Never the less, your 4K read performance is some 30 times better than a magnetic disk! :eek:

    Dual RAID0 array of 1st Gen X25-M 80GB drives...
