Hdd array ?

by S-Dubya / October 21, 2009 1:38 AM PDT

I upgraded my hdd's in my x205-sli-1 from 5400 to 7200's and it appears performance is not better but maybe worse. I was wondering if any of you might know how to properly reinstall the drives or re-configure the hdd's so that they maximize the laptops dual hdd design. I think there are many different ways hdd's can be configured....... such as master and slave, etc. How do you think toshiba configured these for maximum performance? By the way this model is one of the dual hdd and dual gpu's. I plan to install windows 7 64 bit in a few days. Thanks!

btw: I saw a post about performance of my laptop and this guy says something about hdd array:

"I think a very nice plus of the X205-SLI is the 2 disk SATA array that helps to outperform other systems because the average for any single 8600GT is around 2900 3DMarks."
