Intel's brand new ssd's and raid 0?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey, im goin to send back my agility 3 ssd cause its sometimes freeze during some actions, but was just wondering how 2 of theese

http://www.komplett.no/k/ki.aspx?sku=749483#extra

Or 2x 60gb ssd's ofthe same type would be in raid 0.

Cause a friend of mine told me that ssd's loses the TRIM function while in raid, is this true? is it really not worth it to use 2 of them in raid?

And about raid, does the sabertooth z77 motherboard support 2x raid setups?
Cause i was thinking of having the two ssd's in raid 0 and 2x caviar black 1tb in raid for all my games.

Only if you don't ahve a 7series chipset...which you have. TRIM will work for you.

I'd get 1 120/128GB drive, it really doesn't make much of a difference in normal use. Plus you can always add another 120/128GB drive later on if you like for more space. biggrin.gif

Yes it does. I am not aware of any limit. I have 2 RAID 0 arrays set up and they work fine.

I love my agility 3's in raid 0 but I am also aware that there are much faster ssd's out there now.

What do you mean by 7 series chipset? Do the sabertooth MB have that?
