Youngpro put up a couple of world records on XS with a GIGABYTE X58A-UD3R in PCMARK 05 & VANTAGE. Congrats!
Quotes from James:
The Gigabyte UD3R is a really nice little board. I picked this board because it is what I need for this bench, offering all the functionality of a UD9 (of course with not as many PCIE slots) and not a huge amount going on with the board. This is important when there is so much going on with the raid array and the rest of the setup.
Areca 1280ML is a legendary raid controller, it is unpeered in all the benchmarks we play with, and has been for years. I have tried raid controllers from 3 other vendors and my scores can no touch this raid controller. If you want to win at pcmark, you need ARECA.
[EDIT] – Fight for PCMV has just intensified some more with SteveRo from XS breaking back the PCMV W.R. with a GIGABYTE X58A-UD7 and 7x ACARDS.
