Is cloning and restoring a drive a bad idea?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am currently having some issues with my computer hanging/ freezing. I have tried EVERYTHING and am starting to believe it is an issue with my raid array. I am currently using 2x Kingston 3k's 120gb in raid 0. I am planning on buying the new Samsung Evo SSD in 240gb, and using it to replace my (2) 3k's, I REALLY do not want to reinstall the programs/ games/drivers I have on my C: drive. Is using Clonezilla a bad idea? I know a fresh install is always best, but would I notice any performance decrease?

To be honest, I would only back up the really important stuff and start fresh. That's how I been doing it if I had any issues like this. But that's just me.
