CH Formula iV with Ocz Agility3 ssd and 2 samsung f3's in raid 0 help! Hi there,

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have just purchased a OCZ agility 3 60gb ssd and 2x 1 terabyte samsung spinpoint f3's.

I want to have the OCZ agility as the boot disk, and I wanted the 2 Samsung spinpoints in raid 0.

I just have a few questions.

I have a asus crosshair formula IV MB, and it had 6 sata ports, 1-4 can be set as IDE/RAID/AHCI, and 5-6 can only be set as IDE.

I have heard when installing a ssd its best to use AHCI mode, but if i do that then i wont be able to set raid on my other samsungs.

Also I have heard that with the OCZ SSD AHCI isnt a very good option becuase it causes lag in transmitting data. (ive read this somewhere)

I just wanted to know what is the best possible way I can set this up?

I also wanted to know is their a way I can optomize windows 7 for ssd with a hdd, meaning when you install a OS, over time a bunch of other crap and folders build up taking valuable space on the ssd, so is their a way to set the directories to lay on the 2 samsungs?

I hope i made sense :s

Thanks
