X25-M 160 G2 - Raid-0 Slow?

Got 2 new X25-m 160GB G2's new, installed them on Dell SAS 5iR in Raid-0
Not sure whats going on though, I suspect the SAS 5iR card and/or stripe size is causing the slowness

Raid-0 64kb strip (not sure if there is an option to change this)

2 benchmarks

First - Immediately taken after first boot - This is what I was expecting to be the norm.


Second - Taken next day, only real change was a couple installs -- This is what I get now as the norm

Any opinions? How could performance drop in the course of a day? I don't know what the heck is going on here.

I know the speeds are way under par. If I can't change the stripe size  using the SAS card, what RAID card should I get? I would like to keep  the raid-0 even (I am aware of the Trim dilema here)
