Recently I revamped my computer. I bought an Areca 1680 with 2GB of cache and 3 120GB Vertex 2 SSDs. I have the 3 SSDs striped in RAID 0 on the RAID card and my old 4x 300GB VRs in RAID 5 on the same RAID card. The old drives in RAID 5 on the new card seems faster, probably due to the extra cache, but the SSDs are weirdly slow. With Quickbench, I can't seem to push past 500MB/s for reads and 450MB/s for writes. I'm pretty sure 2 drives can push those numbers. I know it's not a south bridge issue and the RAID card is in the second PCIe slot. Could it be my stripe size? Right now I have it set at 64KB. Write back cache is enabled and TCQ is disabled. Please advise. (For reference my RAID 5 gets 205MB/s read and 370MB/s write for a 4GB file) TIA.
