So I am left with plain old hard drives. Sign up with Google. My understanding is that RAID1 not only performs slightly worse than a single drive for writes, it also performs no better than a single drive for reads. I do a daily backup of all my data, so this is not as dangerous as it sounds. They are unsuitable for this controller. Or go to intel matrix website. Windows Systems Administrator Author Commented:

Below are some links that are relevant to this discussion: Or go to intel matrix intel esb2 sata 3.0gbps controller. Privacy Policy Support Terms of Use. I have come across completely contradictory reports, some claiming RAID5 performance being close to RAID0, others denying it, and others warning about it being highly dependent on your raid controller.

Those disks simply are incompatible with the RAID chip. However, if you have intel esb2 sata 3.0gbps controller read threads, such as in typical server applications, then RAID1 can actually have almost as good read performance as RAID0 because any decent controller will concurrently read different files from the individual drives, since conrtoller do not data integrity checking on reads. Is there anything I can to fix the problem? I think that RAID 1 is out because it gives me zero performance improvement.

I am going to building a new custom workstation based on this Supermicro barebones system: Get a bad block or two, and the disk may go offline trying to recover for longer than the Intel esb2 sata 3.0gbps controller controller is programmed to wait.

Intel ESB2 SATA 3.0Gbps Raid Controller

The system writes to the controller memory, the controller controler intel esb2 sata 3.0gbps controller write complete signal and deals with calculations and then the actual writes to the array. True for the former, not necessarily true for the latter if your RAID controller is smart enough to interleave reads on both diskswhich most low-end controllers do not.
