Write Back Cache SSD Raid 0

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have 3 SSD on a raid 0 in my system. Was wondering about the write back cache. I understand it can cause data corruption in say the event of a power failure, but with it enabled does it offer significant performance increase? Trying to decide if I want to turn it on or not. I've heard some people claim their performance is better with it off, so a bit confused on this one.

If you were to have HDDs the write back cache (RAM cache) would have helped since they have slower access times. For SSDs it may not bring anything, but you'd still risk data loss in case of power outage.
