New SSDs: Should I RAID or stick with TRIM?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Well my new hard drives (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227542) are about to arrive here in less than an hour (roommate has them), and i initially bought them to raid0 them together but after some though, I'm not sure if I should just use them separately from each other and stick games on the 2nd SSD.

I've heard that garbage collection was good on OCZ drives, but which way would I be better off heading at?

Thanks in advance for your time.

if you are running windows 7 it is a trivial task to make an image of your boot drive, un-raid, trim, re-raid and re-image.

I'm actually just doing a fresh install of win7.

By the way, I read I shoudl turn off the sleep function with my SSDs, why is that? My PC sleeps a lot.

I raided them and got these benchmarks (which seem quite lousy to me). Is there anything wrong here?
post #7 of 7
yeah those numbers dont look good for sequential read and write.

Here is the bench of my two kingston 64gb raid 0, and they are much slower drives then yours.


I don't know why you are getting those numbers, have done any OS tweaks for ssd's
