Since I got this Sli setup things seem to be different than my last system. right now I have my Raid 0 drives using a 32k stripe size which is what I used to use, but it seems like my drives are running more than necessary and almost seem slower than my other non raid drives.

I ran the windows drive analasys thing. My drives say average file sizes are between 400-600KB. So should I redo my raid 0 with 128k stripe? Any recommendations or info would be greatly appreciated.
I am also using the silicon image controller; is this ok or would it be better to use the nvidia controller?
Thanks in advance
