    Default 40Tb Media Server Performance issues

    I have build a media Server with following specifications,
    Gigabyte GA-H55-UD3h motherboard
    Processor i5 680
    Dell Perc 6i Raid Card
    Chenbro Expander
    20 * 2Tb Western Digital Caviar Green in Raid 6 configuration

    I have set Intellipark to 300secs as discussed on some forums , After installing Server 2008 R2 I transferred 3.4Tb data on the raid setup and it took 3 days . (The maximum speed reached is 30Mbps).I have set the cache block size to 512mb . I believe the speed if extremely slow , I made sure the raid card was installed in the x16 pcie slot , I might be missing something , how can I increase the performance of this media server or is it bottle neck due to hardware itself.

    Looking at the pictures of the Dell Perc 6i it looks like an 8 lane PCIe with 8 SAS lanes. Are you using two cables from the controller to the expander?

    Actually, do you happen to have a model number for the expander? That would help a lot.
