    Only sad thing is that they didn't look more into what I wrote...

    The problem was infact not solved and it makes Techspot look bad...

    I've sent mail's to The Inquirer explaining this but have not got any reply...

    Well, guess some sites will report anything without even taking time to look further into it first, oh well...

    The problem WAS solved, but had a small side-effect (reduced performance), so no need to worry.

    Yes, with reduced performance...

    And by reduced I mean the performance of my two Maxtor D740X harddrives in RAID0 are now worse than that of a 5400RPM harddrive of five years ago!

    This "fix" was only meant as an intermediate solution...

    We are still awaiting the fix from Abit/Nvidia/Silicon Image

    I'm living with the Asus .281 drivers for now. While the write performance is a dismal 16MB/s the read performance is a sweet 111MB/s. For what I do on the computer most of the writing to disk is small cache files andand such and occurs in the background so the performance hit isn't all that noticeable. Loading programs and booting is very fast.

    It will be nice to be able to write at full speed too, for those times I transfer those 100+ MB files around to the various logical drives of the array and to speed up overall performance to what it could be. I keep checking Asus twice a day just hoping the fix has been posted.
