RAID 0 - Corsair Force CSSD-F60GB2-BRKT

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
OK, I got 2 Corsair Force CSSD-F60GB2-BRKT in a RAID 0. Picked them up for $104 each on sale at newegg a week ago.

Specs are:
Capacity: 60GB
Interface Type: SATA II

Features:
Latest generation Sandforce controller and MLC NAND flash for fast performance
Random Write 4K: 15,000 IOPS / 50,000 IOPS (Aligned)
TRIM support (O/S support required)
BGC (Background Garbage Collection)
No moving parts for increased durability and reliability and quieter operations over standard hard disk drives
Decreased power usage for increased notebook or netbook battery life
2.5" form factor for your portable computer needs
Included 2.5" to 3.5" bracket for installation on your desktop computer

Performance:
Sequential Access - Read: up to 285MB/s
Sequential Access - Write: up to 275MB/s

I ordered these for the write speeds cuz I run VM's.
I'm curious if anyone has used any other SSD's, or these in particular, with the spec's in bold above?
What kind of performance are you getting? I have an older mobo about 3yrs old or more:
Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd.
Model:GA-MA78GM-US2H
OS: Windows 7 x64 2GB RAM
Onboard RAID Controller used.
RAID chunk size: 64k

The SATA is SATA-3G. I ask because I think I should get better than what I am getting now. My best read is 440MB/s and best write is 403MB/s.

/I am speculating the on board RAID is not up to par.....

Think that is about the most you will get on Sata3 this is one of my vids Vetex2's in Raid0 on AMD platform at Sata6

Nice!
So your Vertex 2 SSD's are SATA 3G connected to a SATA 6G RAID controller?
Is the RAID controller onboard your mobo?

I am going to buy another one to put 3 of them in a RAID 0 just to see if it get's any better. If not, I'm going to buy a new mobo cuz it looks like the SATA 3G onboard controller is my bottleneck.

Yes two sata3 ssd's on Sata6, think youd be better off getting a sata6 mobo as another SSD in Raid wont go any faster, or get a Raid card controller thing, dont know much about them though but youd probably be pushing the price of a Sata6 mobo going that route
