    Why such SLOW write times with 3x X25-M RAID 0?


      I've got three 80 GB X25-M SSDs in RAID 0 using the SATA RAID option on my motherboard (Intel ICH10R.)  I flashed the drives to the latest firmware on 3-4-10.  I am using Vista64 on an i7-920 system.


      READ speed is fantastic; 4k WRITE speed is DISMAL -  like 4 mb/sec - OR LESS- no matter what benchmark I use.  Using AS SSD benchmark I get the following results-    What am I doing wrong?  Is there some setting I goofed up somehow?  I spent $650 on these drives and my system is WAY SLOWER now than it was with a WD Raptor!
