I've seen flaky/unpredictable performance with these LSI controllers.
Also some Seagate 1TB drives have performance bugs which affect
sequential reads - so you could try using alternative drive firmwares,
as the bug seems to have been fixed in the non-Dell firmware (see my
recent posts to this list - still no response from Dell on this issue!).
