Optimizing read read/write speed to raid array with RT3WB080 controller

Hey everyone.  I'm using a RT3WB080 with 8 segate 7200rpm 2TB drives in a raid 5 array.  I am using this as storage for music production.  I am getting errors sometimes from the software that it can not read from the disk fast enough.  This seems crazy since when I did some tests I was seeing 1.5 GB/s read from the array.  Can someone tell me the best way to optimize my setup to get the best read/write speeds from the array?


I posed some screen shots of my setup on photobucket.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  I really want to get the most out of this setup.
