As for 2 partitions: I am using that right now, but would prefer single partition for its benefits. Guess I will leave the system as it is right now and wait for proper EFI support from Asus.
Read performance on RAID 5 is good, but write performance (even on top of the line hardware RAID controller) is lagging.
So after reading your previous post on your daily backups, i would even go RAID 0 on all 4 spindles.
