So, I should be set for a few more months until crazy deals on the high capacity drives start rolling out. Will slapping the second one into raid 0 with my original drive only increase sequential speeds or should I expect to see any other benefits?

Pros:
  • 2X faster sequential reads/writes of the slowest drive (not really noticeable with SSDs).
  • 2X space of the smallest drive.



Cons:
  • No TRIM support for SSDs part of an array atm.
  • RAID 0 only improves sequential performance which is generally not that useful and it also almost doubles your failure rate. (1 drive goes the array is lost and all data is gone, you need to have a backup of all the data on the array in case of a failure)
  • Slightly slower boot time (The RAID controller needs to initialized after the BIOS does and that adds time to your boot time, usually 3-5 seconds slower)

Hmm well, if there's no TRIM support, I'll skip it and just use it as an independent drive. Thanks for the heads up.

Damn, looks like i got screwed on my M4 ssd, people here getting at least 200 extra read speeds. ***

It's because you're in IDE instead of AHCI.

Make sure you do this before changing otherwise it will BSOD

even after doing that, not much difference, still got screwed on my SSD, other people getting over 500 read speeds, this sucks.

guess its my fault for listening to the crucial m4 hype train, should have went with the vertex, damn

your mobo is holding you back. try it on the intel controller and you might get a little better results.
the marvell controller you have ti on is not real SATAIII.

are you saying the x58a-ud3r motherboard has no sata 3? obviously thats false advertising in this case, can i not sue for that?

It has SATA 3, but the early Marvell SATA 3 controllers are not very good compared to the Intel ones, even the Intel SATA 2 ports would be better for you as the Marvell really struggles with 4K transfers.

Try plugging the M4 into one of the Intel SATA ports, yes it'll be SATA 2 so you'll lose some top end sequential speed, but for general use it'll be much much quicker.

Well, aside from benchmarking, you wont notice it much, but you should notice a difference in speed if you plug that M4 to those Intel ports.

Anyway, is the Samsung 830 powered by magic or something? Somehow it has got even quicker for me today for no reason and the Samsung Magician software reported a big jump in IOPS performance too, strange.
