I am going to reformat these drives, below are the speed tests.
1) How should I hook these three drives into my MB across the 4 ports bank 0 and 1? Does the order even matter?
2) Where I should put my OS. I see two possible configurations:
A: Partition the 500 into a 100gb section for the OS and a 400gb for storage. POSSIBLE PROBLEM: the read head will have to move from the OS portion to the storage portion thus slowing down access.
B: Use the 250gb drive as the dedicated OS drive. POSSIBLE PROBLEM: Based on HD Tune it seems to be the slower drive.
