Many hours of dedicated planning and consideration have gone into this build and it has been used in many benchmarking excursions and extreme overclocking sessions.
She has even set a few HWBot world records along the way! Click on the photo for full resolution.

We will be using several different benchmarks to illustrate the speed of the array under different circumstances. AS SSD, AIDA 64, ATTO, WEI, and the benchmark standard PCMark Vantage will all be used to ensure consistency in all results, along with tests utilizing one of the newest benchmarks available that is tailored specifically for SSD performance metrics, the Anvil Storage Utility.
We have amassed a number of big name sponsors for a number of high-powered reviews that will be released fairly quickly, and we would like to thank Patriot memory, LSI and Areca for making this evaluation possible. Lets have one more look at The Team!
