I've been able to get 122Megabytes per second so 976megabits using straight cat5e from my FreeNAS box with 12TB of ZFS-Z to my pc. I am using iSCSI into Windows 7 and mounting as NTFS.

Pretty happy that I am getting close to theoretical max with little or no tweaking.

As the other poster mentioned, modern gigabit cards automatically do the crossover switch for you when they detect point to point.

I have a line of extremely slimline PCs that afford SATAIII -- 6Mb/sec transfer.  What is iSCSI?  You have too many acronyms in your post.
