SSD... only good for storing ISO files now... BOOYA!

Just wish I could stuff more than 32GB in my motherboard...

For a OS drive, raid 0 ssds are pointless, for storage or programs with large sequential reads (games for instance), it works extremely well; tho ime, I saw no difference in game load times with single vs raid 0.

As a raid SSD user, I can confirm this in all but the one scenario I built it for. I use my SSDs as a scratch disk to record 1080p60 footage and transfer it to an HDD raid at about the speed of plaid./

Thanks for the head up sean and unit igor. I asked about that very thing a while back on over clockers club. They told me that I could not do that. 5 minutes of trial and error with my bios and it turned out to be a ROM option. You save several seconds of my day thumb.gif

+ rep for both of you.
