I am wondering, in regards to the new i7 920 chip i bought of intel, what sort of file copy speeds i should be getting? At the moment it is taking me approx 5 min to copy 5G of files from one drive to the other. I have installed all the necessary drivers and my device manager is recognising all the 8 cores. I have heard multiple reports of people with similar configurations of these file transfers taking only matter of seconds, can you please give me some advice and what i can do to begin getting these speeds?
Chipset: i7 920
Motherboard: Asus Rampage II Extreme

Case: HAF 922.
Operating System: Vista 64bit Ultimate.
The problem you seem to be having does not really sounds CPU related to me. I think it has something to do with the speed of the harddisks or something with the motherboard/controller. I would run speed tests/benchmarks on your harddisks as a starting point.
