Need some help with this intel smart response technology

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
so my parts came in today putting together my computer i wanted to enable the
Intel smart response technology

so i followed the guide on the booklet the mobo came with
i told me to set up a raid-0 configuration with my SSD and my HDD

my mobo is the ASUS z68 v pro series
my SSD is an OCZ agility series with 60 gigs
my HDD is a samsung pinpoint f3 with 1 TB

so i set up the raid 0 config and it combined my hard drive into one making it
119 gigs big, is that correct?

also as i insert the CD to install the drivers, installed the

lan port driver
the chipset driver
then the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver

after a restart it tells me to start up the IRST program and go to a tab "Accelerate"

But I can not see a tab Accelerate its only

STATUS MANAGE PREFERENCES HELP

but the program says that everything is running correctly with green check marks.

does anyone that use this program know if the SRT is up and running?
does anyone also know how to check?

thank you for your time in reading this guys thank you ocn!

Raid 0 Takes the size of the smallest drive in the aray and uses that size for all of them. so if you have a 100gb drive and a 2 tb drive, your raid drive would be 200gb.
THE more important question is why in the world are you putting a ssd and a disk drive in a raid aray?

I am trying to use the z68 mobo feature
Intel smart response technology

and ive read that only works if you go into your bios and turn on raid0 rather than ACHI or whatever the other option is called

If you want to use SRT....
Remove SSD from system.
Enable RAID in BIOS.
Install OS on HDD.
Once installation has completed and drivers updated, install SSD into system.
NOW go and set up SRT.


However, you will get better performance if you install OS on SSD and manage the space yourself.
Once again...

i see thank you!

to be honest i dont really need much space, i dont save any high res videos on my computer, i delete them afterwards.

i only use this computer for video games, my music folder is 5 gigs big.

keeping this raid array as it is now, does it hinder my SSD performance?

or should i just ignore the SRT and just have 2 separate drives

I have a question about this before I take the plunge and buy an SSD for Smart Response Technology. When I build my system and my main C drive is put in the RAID 0 in the bios aand the OS installed and updated do I have to install the SSD for Smart Response Technology at that time or can I wait until I can afford to buy the drive and then do it without any data loss or having to reinstall the OS? It sounds like this is just plugging in a thumb drive for ready boost. I will also have 3 more HDD's for data that I don't want in raid, is that possible too? My system specs for this build are already in my sig below.
