diskpart align= for Exchange2003

Does anyone know what the "recommended" number is for the align=?? switch for DiskPart.exe is?
I'm building an exchange server which has locally attached storage (not san) and I want to align the sectors but I'm not sure if I should use:
align=64 or align=128 or some other number for HP hardware.
Hardware is DL380 using SA6400 with 4 - 73Gb SCSI drive setup in a RAID1+0.
That which does not kill you, only makes you stronger...
