Ok thanks that is what I was wondering. smile.gif

It works great otherwise not a single problem. Was just wondering if this was common.

Hello all!

So, I have my new 840 Pros in RAID0 as part of my updated build. W00T!

I went and tried running AS SSD Benchmark to see how perky the drives are, and got an error toward the end. Then, I noticed afterward that the SSD suddenly had about 12GB more on it than it had just a minute ago. So, two questions:

1) Is that normal after benching, resulting from the bazillion writes performed as part of the benchmark process? (No new obvious files are apparent on the disk upon investigation btw, so it seem like some rather ghostly data.)

2) If so, is this just something I need to wait for TRIM to clean up during idle time? If not, could this be some kind of artifact from the error when running the application?

Thanks,
JML

And so...

I went and had Win7 show hidden files and I found a big old hibernation file was causing the sudden leap in my disk usage. Interesting that, as I have hibernation disabled. Hm.

I got my wife a 500GB 840 (not pro) for Christmas. For now, it is a replacement drive for her 2008 Dell 530s. Obviously, it's running SATA II, but it sure has sped things up enormously over a 5400 rpm factory HD.

 

I decided on this one in part because at 7mm thick it can go into the laptop she really wants.

OK, so that I'm sure to get this right....

I want to put my 2 840 Pro's in RAID0 on my ASRock x79 mobo. I've already flashed the UEFI to the most recent version, which embraces TRIM support for RAID configurations. When I configure the UEFI, do I want to set it to use RST or RSTe, or does it make no difference? I seem to recall hearing that RSTe does NOT support TRIM in RAID, so I want to be sure.

Then, do I also need to install the Intel RST (or RSTe) driver in Win7 once I have the OS installed? If so, does it need to match (RST or RSTe) what I set the UEFI to?

Thanks to anyone with the answers,
JML

BTW, my understanding was that x79 only uses RSTe, but my mobo offers both RST and RSTe options, hence my query.

Thanks,
JML

Asrock, Gigabyte, and now Asus have released new bios's that allow the use of the 11.6 raid rom and standard irst drivers now. On my Asus you have to reformat under the new settings in the bios. Early tests on the Asus have not gone smoothly and when finally done performance was brutal.

I cannot say how it was implemented on your mobo but worth a try for sure. Worst case is you do not like it and go back to what you had.

When you say performance was brutal, is that a good thing? m.oreilly has been asking me about just this subject, please PM him to take him out of his misery... thumb.gif

*cough* Stock *cough* ?? You don't even have stock CMOS clear jumpers on your boards... wink.gif
