Default i would like to work faster!!! help me make the right decision please :)

Hi guys , with the movement to 4k RAW i find myself wanting faster storage. I willing to pay the price as long as its the best option and i know ill get that info here no doubt. working off of 2 raided 480gig SSDs was sweet 900mbs read, 600mbs write. But i want more space and faster speeds. Id love to go thunderbolt, SAS , or SATA6 with a PCIE adapter card. my current board is the X79 asrock extreme 9 overclocked to 4.2 on air.

What should i do friends?

Thanks,
Chris

how many drives for a fast raid 10 setup? if i make this setup run 2 gigs a sec read and write will my processor be the bottleneck?

I really need some good advice. my friend suggests 8 samsung 512gig evo ssd sata6 in raid 0. should i do that and then just back up the 10bit hqx files. i wont be backing up the raw files because honestly i dont see a difference hqx. this codec is awsome!!!

Id like to have read and write speeds at 3gbs consistantly , not this hits 800mbs and drops to 200mbs. so i guess a controller with 1gig of cache will help with that?

Any help is much appreciated.

Chris

you need to look around for a suitable raid card that can handle that speed

adaptec can't

I think some of the Adaptec 7000 and 8000 range can do up to 6GB/s sequential read and write, but they need a 4x PCI-E 3 slot and a lot of SSD drives in them to sustain it

I run a LSI 9266 8i with Cache backup and advanced features enabled on the card, and 8 Intel 480GB SSD drives in a Raid 5 setup, I average around 2500mb write and around 2400mb read, will increase sometimes though, but never gets below these speeds, couldn't be happier with the LSI cards, I use to use Adaptec cards but when they released the 7000 series cards i was getting terrible speeds from them, Adaptec in Germany and the USA couldn't work out the problem, My friend Neil is the head Tech in Australia for Adaptec and we tried over 6 of the 7000 series cards and still had bad speeds, No problems with LSI though, I highly recommend them.

So it may be a conflict between the Intel drives and the RAID card

i have a pcie x8 3.0 slot open, should i get a card that has that bandwith? or will i never reach that speeds with 8 ssd's and opt for pcie 2.0 with the cache kit.

was looking at this one which has pcie 3.0 x8 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16816118193 and 1 gig cache memory. is this as good as the add on one?
