    Don't know why I even bother to ask since it took me forever to get Intel
    SATA up and running - didn't care which, just wanted one of em to work - on
    my new MoBo. But I'll ask anyways, which do you folks think is better
    (faster, more reliable, stable etc)? Seems like a read a review somewhere
    where the reviewer liked Silicon better.

    I'm also wondering why they give you both options?

  2. I would have thought that the Intel one would be better due to the fact
    they're not on the PCI bus. But i suppose this would only really show
    itself when copying large amounts of data to/from a fast drive setup across
    the CSA bus gigabit LAN.

  3. I have a RAID 0 array on both of them, and to tell you the truth I didn't
    even think about which one might be faster when I chose which one to use for
    the array I boot to. They both work fine for me.

    2 WD 36gig Raptors on the Silicon that I boot to XP Pro on, and 2 Seagate
    160gig's on the Intel that I store my data on.
