Correct, but the probability of a sudden breakdown of a RAID0 member is much lower with SSDs than with HDDs, because SSDs don't have mechanical write and read heads.

Thread Starter 
For me I feel that One very good SSD is better then two in RAID 0, One SSD feels snappier within the OS etc. this is just my opinion. I've been using RAID 0 since the first controllers were put onto Motherboards.

Heres a Tom's article about One SSD or RAID 0

I was going to paste that link also.

The RAID-based configurations undoubtedly scored the first touchdown given exceptional sequential results, but the game didn't end there. Individual SSDs regained ground in the tests that followed, even posting better scores in some of them.

Hi! Sometimes my Windows 8 is freezed at boot using Intel RST 12.8.0.1016 Driver.
I discovered that it do not work when I use the hybernate mode or the hybrid shutdown of Windows 8.
With the previous Intel RST 12.6.3.1000 Driver it works very well.

An other strange behavior:
- the stripe size resulting by the OROM 12.7.0.1936 is 488403MB - 50MB;
- the previous stripe size was 488403MB - 7MB (OROM 11.2.0.1527);
- if you want to get again the correct size, make a stripe lower than the max size (< 476.9GB)
and increase the space after the installation of Windows with the Intel RST GUI...
otherwise you get an error!


My system:
AsRock Z77 Professional (BIOS v1.70 + OROM 12.7.0.1936)
CPU i7-3770K @4.7GHz OC / 16GB RAM G-SKILL 2400MHz CL9 XMP
2X SSD Samsung 840 Pro 256GB RAID-0 (Firmware DXM05B0Q)
2X HDD WD3200BEKT RAID-1 (Firmware 11.01A11)
1X Pioneer BD-ROM BDC-202 (Firmware 1.07)

Hey Guys Ive went back to running a single ssd in achi , just because I felt it was quicker to boot and just as fast on the desktop without all the trim issues . I finally decided to use the Intel RST(e) Drivers over the stock MS drivers because my two Samsung SSD 840 Pro Random Read IOP and Random Write IOP were very low . So I downloaded Intel RST(e 12.5.0.1066 after that My Random Read IOP and Random Write IOP speeds went up to normal and My Sequential Write went down.
Ive tried also 12.7.1.1000 and 12.8.0.1016 and performance keeps dropping , could it be because Im running such a old Intel raid rom 11.0.0.1339 ? Would Updating Intel raid rom 12.0.0.1783 with the Intel RST(e) 12.7.1.1000 net me back performance in both places , and if so is there a updated Asus Maximus V Formula Bios 1707 or 1802 with Intel raid rom 12.0.0.1783 ? Here some pictures below of where Im at in single Achi . Thanks Again

Before Intel raid rom 11.0.0.1339 and Microsoft Drivers




After Intel raid rom 11.0.0.1339 and Intel RST(e 12.5.0.1066

After running my two Vertex 4 in raid 0 for almost a year, I decided to go to single drives setup next time I rebuild (when Windows 8.1 will be released). I will keep one for OS and software and the second one dedicated to my Steam and Origin games libraries.

I agree with you idea. I did the same move after running 520 in sata raid and every other ssd and hdd before that . With a fast ssd there is no neeed for raid unless sequential speed on your os is a must which is never. What I did was optimal I put a samsung 840 240 pro as my os c:/ and then a slave samsung 840 512 d:/steam d:/downloads d:/documents etc . My system boots much faster and coordinates a bit better . now if we could get rid of the raid boot load that be a different story
