Fat32 does benefit..say 8 or 16bit cluster size..I wouldnt go much higher than that...

Yeah, if you are talking about RAID set ups
I was talking about single drive setups..

As one cool says it will cause a higher degree of fragmentation and working with smaller files for normal non gaming use can be more difficult. You can get more details if you google it, been a while since i read the last article on the cluster size. It mostly evident when you use RAID in NTFS its not going to affect performance much other than causing defragmentation.

I am not that conserved about data lose (five partitions and a complete back up with Notron Goast makes me not conserned) I have is a 4KB what would be the best.
I am reading a few things from Google fight now.

"The performance comes thew the bursts from the hard drive. by having a larger cluster size you affectivly have a larger chunk of data sent to ram rather than having to read multiple smaller chunks of the same data."
Is this true? If so I am going to make the cluser size a lot bigger on some paritions (on one parition the average files size is 20mb so it might be worth the change.)
