Raid 0 setup with Samsung 840 Pro SSD?? - Page 6

post #51 of 73
Unallocated space means you didnt format raid field.You need to go in control panel,administrative tools,computer management,storage.Right click,format drive.
And give us screenshot of drives in storage window.
Force Intel RST driver installationhttp://thessdreview.com/Forums/windows-7/2767.htm

The other choices that are not highlighted are:
New Spanned volume
new simple volume
new striped volume
new mirrored volume
new raid 5 volume

MAN GREAT,everything is where it should be.Just format (everything default) that 453gb partition.I dont know is that system reserved big,i know Win 7 have 100mb,but thats not important now,you got storage and maybe somebody reply on that 350mb system reserved.
O and dont fill your SSDs more then 85%.For nice OS performance leave even more free on that 128gb drive.

The other choices that are non highlighted which I cannot choose are:
New Spanned volume

I am sorry to bother you Unit Igor,
when I select simple Volume it says,
" a simple volume can only be on a single disk"

Do not know if I should continue or not???

Thanks

Sorry man I forgot.When i try to format my 30gb unallocated space of my raid field that i left to see will ssd have better performance,it gives me possibility to format in simple volume.By the way its same if you have unallocated or free space.
I would like somebody reply on this.But nothing can happened to drives now in this stage,so you can try striped volume.
It seem to me that Rampage IV Extreme is one stubborn mule. biggrin.gif I am just joking,i would definitely love to have it,man with 60GB ram-disk for games and everything else,one day maybe.
One thing more,you need to put your rig in signature so other can help you.

Thanks Unit Igor for all your help. You guys at overclock.net have been great. Thanks for your patients, I realize that I do not have a lot of computer knowledge and am very grateful that many of you have taken the time to help me out. I know many of you have an incredible understanding , especially the latest and greatest technology, which I do not have and it can get frustrating helping a newbie like me. I hope I can return the favor. I will keep reading the forum to learn more so that I can contribute.

I Have included a snapshot of my computer management page.

Thanks to all.




Here is a snapshot of my Window experience test:


Interesting enough looks like the Primary Hard drive seems to be slowing things down a little??

I tried booting the primary SSD off of the ASmedia Sata3 port and the Intel Sata 2 port but still received the same score 7.9
It takes about 41 seconds to boot up windows 8 to the main screen using the Intel Sata 2 port. I followed all the optimization recommendations in the windows 8 install and Optimization guide.
Any idea what can be causing this??

Thanks
