    ARECA RAID CARD PROBLEMS

    Studio North Films Level 3

      I am in the middle of building my new system.

       

      I am having problems with an Areca arc-1680 IX 16 Port.

       

      Basically the card is running so slow, I have tried varios volumes from 2x hd in raid 0, to 10 raid 0, raid 30 ect. the higest i got is 170 ish mbs. peaks up and down.

       

      I have tried with HD Tach & HD Tune.

       

      Motherboard used:

       

      Asus Z8NA-D6

      HD: Samsung hd103sj

      Windows 7 ultimate.

       

      I have tried the only 2 available 8x pci-e slots. makes no difference.

       

      waiting for areca to get back to me.

       

      this is the second card i am testing this week. So i have 2 cards that cost ££££ and they are useless.

       

      any sugestions what it could be.
