best stripe size raid 0 SSD's??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
title says it all what do you guys think specs are in my sig excuse my lack of knowledge this is my first ssd setup, also on the ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 board im reading setting up raid is very difficult and since this will be my first attempt can someone look into it for me and help me out here ill be very thankful people are saying its very difficult in the reviews on newegg.


heres the newegg review that concerns me!
"Cons: SATA RAID: It's always the little things, but I wanted to RAID 0 "Stripe" my two identical brand/model 1T drives together to get a little more speed out of the system. Over 24 hours after first P.O.S.T. I still had not accomplished OS load (Win7 Pro 64) with RAID striping; finally gave up and just did one drive because of ease! I needed to cable SATA DVD drive to SATA port 6 (set BIOS to IDE emulation--manual indicates this) and only have one SATA hard drive plugged in to SATA port 1 (manual does not indicate this)."

the best SSD RAID0 size? in GB? The max you can afford... if you don't plan to spend a stupid quantity of money for 2 large SSDs then the 2 64GB crucial you already own will do fine for OS and a few games.

To install windows on aRAID array you'll need to load the RAID drivers into the Windows setup configuration. Apart from that, no other problem should arise...
