Optimal cluster size for 64K striped NTFS volume?



I am looking to optimize the Read performance of a given

Windows 2000 Server SP4
Software Raid-0
Two ATA/100 HD's each on a separate controller.
Volumes will be formatted NTFS.

If Raid writes 64KB stripes, how does that influence my
selection of a cluster size when I format these drives?

I am thinking that it might be wise to select something
greater than the 4K default, but have been unable to find
any performance study concerning cluster sizes in RAID

Thank you in advance for any assistance.
