    Quick RAID 0 with new to me controller and expander from LSI and Intel. One with spinning disks and one with ssd's. The old controller was a 9265-8i and the new one is 9361-8i. Same disks and RAID 0 configs on each.

    Yes, I was surprised the performance scaled that well literally just swapping out the cards.

    From another thread regarding the new 20 series cards:

    The RAID card and expander cost me about what an RTX 2070 is alleged to retail at.

    I'm enjoying my new workstation 2990wx build. Using my old GTX 980 just fine. Woo boy!

    This tempts me to go with a 2990WX build for my next upgrade. Also, RAID0 PM981s but still probably going to stick with my three 980 Tis in TriSLI. Maybe custom loop, probably not. Most likely air. My current system woldn't boot so I took it to a PC repair place so they could diagnose it. If it's the motherboard (X99 Phenonix) or CPU (2695v3), I might spring for a big upgrade.
