mobo raid question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Simple question:

Can I do multiple RAIDs using raid adapter built into my mobo (in sig)? I want to run OS and apps on two SSD in raid 0, and put other crap on my current HDDs (sig) in raid 1.

Also was looking to get two of these- seems like a good price / GB / performance:

opinions? Suggestions on better drives / value?

Yes, you can.

Vertex 2 is an excellent choice given that you will be using the ICH10R (SATA 3Gb/s). However, there are 34nm and 25nm NAND models... the older 34nm ones are a bit better.
Once again...

Hey bro,

Yeah the vertex 2's are epic in RAID0. I don't think you should go with 2x120gb drives, I would have thought 2x60gb drives would have been enough. I mean, it should be used for your most used applications, not everything you have. Just my 2c though.

However,

I would get a third WD black and do a RAID5 array, you'll get redundancy and better use of your storage...

Sounds good! Any opinions on OCZ customer support and rebate support (there is rebate on drive in link above). Will they still honor warranty after I chop the upc off the box?

If you're damaging the casing of the SSD I doubt it, but i'm not sure tbh mate

On the blacks by the way, you'll need to enable TLER if you've not done it already

There anyway to see if those in link above are 25 or 34? I guess that might explain why price seems decent, and they are offering a rebate..

Are there any alternatives in same price / performance/ capacity that don't have the guesswork?

hmm just 2 things about raiding SSD on ICH10, if you raid ssd your going to loose trim i believe and also the max read/write speed over ICH10 is about 500~600mbs

But if im not mistakin the microcenter gen2 SSD's are 34nm and is similar to vertex 2's

but yeah, just some food for thought

So would real world performance (games, internet browsing- general usage) be better with 1 240GB drive with TRIM or two 120GBs in RAID0?

IMO i would go with a single ssd, I had a raid 0 vertex (original 60gb) and i really didnt notice a difference from the c300 i put in earlyer in the month. (350mbs with c300 on sataIII vs 520mbs w/ vertex raid0 on sataII) Also the trim will helps with garbage and prolong the life expectancy of your ssd from what ive read
