    Samsung 840 pro 256gb or not so great 4 platter disk raid?

    Abobedoobie

      I am debating a 'main' project disk I was thinking 4 seagate 1tb es on my motherboard in raid 5 (asus p9x79 pro).

       

      Now I know this wont be a great raid controller as its on the mobo - but what sort of speeds will I get though from these 4 disks in raid 5? This does tempt me to just use a samsung 840 pro and back it up instead but its not my first choice.

       

      It will also only be a temporary solution anyway till I get enough money for a 8 disk dedicated controlled raid set up (which I assume will be pretty fast).

       

      ps also space is not a problem for me - I normally stay under 100gb per project.

       

      Thanks!
