RAID two slightly different SSDs?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I figured this would be better to post here as it has slightly more to do with the SSDs themselves...

I'm currently exploring options for making my rig "better" before I seal it up for good. I currently have a Kingston SSD, which has performed pretty damn well, but has pretty shoddy storage quantity. My question is, can I use the one I currently have to RAID 0 with a newer version? The performance gain wouldn't be as important as the added space, but it is a definite boon.

The one I currently have is the Kingston SNV425-S2/128GB (

) and the one I'd get is the Kingston SV100S2/128GZ ( ). Would I hit any compatibility issues?

Thanks.

i would think you'd be ok, i've got 2 different mech drives running in raid0 with out issues
another thing you can do is edit your registry and change all the drive values to store your downloads and select programs on. I've been using a 40 gig for 6 months and have 20 gigs free still. see if that would help you

Sweet, thanks. I've used that guide, but I like having my games on my SSD. Less loading = faster to get into games = faster "quick game" = sooner I'm back to folding. The specs seem more or less the same, so I'm assuming both drives will go at the same speed, which would be the old one's speed.

The only disadvantage is that you lose TRIM when running SSDs in RAID array, which may cause performance to degrade over time.

That doesn't sound good... I'll have to think more on this...
