I use a OCZ Agility 3 60GB for SRT with my boot drive WD Caviar Black. Boot times and application loading times have improved well. I click on the Firefox button on the taskbar as soon as the desktop has appeared and firefox is up straight away. biggrin.gif

Update the firmware if you get a OCZ SSD.

Is is a good idea to switch the SATA mode to RAID after I have already installed windows?
post #14 of 20
Only if you are making a RAID array or using SRT, otherwise no.

And if you do you need to do a quick registry change first.

Will this quick registry change cause system errors? Or shoudl I just take the time to reinstall windows to prevent problems?

No errors lol.

Make sure you have the Intel SATA drivers installed.

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/20624/eng/iata_enu_10.8.0.1003.exe&lang=eng&Dwnldid=20624&ProductID=2101&ProductFamily=Chipsets&ProductLine=Chipset+Software&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Rapid+Storage+Technology

Once they are then do the steps below.

Enable RAID Mode after Installation:
  1. Exit all Windows-based programs.
  2. Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.
  3. Now type regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window.
  4. If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
  5. Locate and then click the following registry subkeys:
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStorV
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor
    
  6. In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
  7. In the Value data box, type 0 [3 is default], and then click OK.
  8. On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
  9. Restart your computer
  10. Go to UEFI/BIOS and enable RAID, Save & Reboot
  11. Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation.

Nice, now give it a week and a lot of your normally used things should be a lot quicker.
