Question about setting up RAID 0

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Tell me if I did this correctly please

1) I set the BIOS boot mood to RAID

2) In the Windows 8.1 setup, I pressed F6 and loaded the IRST Driver 12.​9.​0.​1001

3) Using Disk part, I cleaned both my 1 TB EVO SSDs then reconverted them to GPT

4) I created the 3 partitions needed for Windows + C: + D: on the 1st SSD

5) I left the 2nd SSD unpartitioned

6) Once I was in Windows and installed the intel chipset drivers followed by the IRST Driver 12.​9.​0.​1001 driver/application, I created a RAID 0 array using the 1st + 2nd SSD which was unpartitioned

7) Windows took like an hour to migrate all the data

8) I started using my laptop and noticed 0 difference than when it was on AHCI mode

is this how it's supposed to be done? was I right in not partitioning the 2nd SSD during setup?

You did it right.

 

The difference in daily use is typically unnoticeable with RAID 0 SSDs vs a single drive.

Tweak,

Try downloading HD Tune and running the benchmark feature. http://www.hdtune.com/
You should be able to get your difference in throughput on 1 vs 2.

I would agree that the difference would be very hard to tell on boot or opening apps.
You may see a difference in transferring files (read /write) if you don't have any bottlenecks , but most likely you will. Raid SSD will be faster then your memory, board, and usb ports etc. thumb.gif

Faster than RAM memory? Of course not, non-volatile storage devices have a ways to go before they even catch RAM.

This is a benchmark on a RAM drive created with software provided with some ASRock boards:

Thats crazy, my mistake, i was simply implying and without scope, the fact that a command to and from memory would still have to pass through the motherboard before getting to the io portion.

Throughput on the ram alone i can understand your correction. Thanks ^^
