AMD Raid 0 Configuration

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 



Hey my dear OCN friends. I need your help setting me up a Raid 0 Array with my two SSD's.
Doing Intel build was easy. But trying to do same way I did with my 3930k build doesn't seem to work.
Downloaded neccessary files still doesn't work. Kept on telling me to install 32bit drivers. I even downloaded the 32bit Raid files. Any advices, pointers, .02, and guidance will be greatly appreciated.

Mobo: GA-78LMT-USB3
Chipset: AMD 760G + SB710
SSD: x2 OCZ Trion 150 240GB


Thanks in advance,
Lynn Lee

Don't do it unless you are ok with not having TRIM support in Windows. As far as I know, only Intel RST software RAID supports TRIM on SSDs.

I was assuming the latest AMD mobo's also support TRIM, least in 2 SSD formation?

Why AMD gotta be so complicated. Tried all kinds of drivers.

I've researched this recently, and came up with the answer of "nope." At least not when in a RAID configuration.

AHCI, yes it will TRIM, and in certain circumstances, non-RAID volume members connected to a RAID configured controller (or real hardware RAID controller.)

You're going to loose redundancy with Raid 0. Don't really need TRIM all that badly. Should be able to get some years from a decent set of SSDs in raid 0. Just make your backups a little more often.

Even with garbage collection routines on the more modern SSDs, TRIM is always better than no TRIM. That's all I was pointing out.

As far as losing redundancy, if they're considering RAID-1 versus RAID-0, then yes you lose redundancy in favor of speed, but if they're not looking at mirroring (or adding a third drive for RAID-5,) and thus losing storage capacity, there's really nothing lost at all.

That is to say, two SSDs sitting there with different mount points or drive letters are no more redundant than a RAID-0, if you're not manually synchronizing everything between the volumes. All you're doing is increasing the likelihood of losing all your data should one of the RAID-0 members fail.

And, generally speaking SSDs are so much more reliable than hard disk drives. Not to say it doesn't happen, but I've literally never lost an SSD, having owned seven or eight different SSDs and NVMe drives, while I have stacks of HDDs I've lost over the years. Stacks.

Well since Spinners have been around decades.... I'd hope you have some dead mechanical drives. Got quite a few myself!!

Real Gamers Raid 0 and Forget TRIM. Never hear any complaints.

TRIM overrated? sniper.gif
