Is OS on RAID 0 better? or Vertex 3

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am having difficulty on a new build right now, am faced with relaoding everything and reconfiguring. The option of RAID 0 for the OS has come up.

Is this as fast as the Vertex 3, faster?

If it might be better, is it a matter of physically building the drives in the case/board , building the arrays in BIOS, then loading the OS? I am not sure if the RAID drivers install prior to OS installation with this board, or after OS install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you!

Vertex 3 will pound any mechanical RAID 0 in the dirt.

OK good to hear...


When I do the reload, Should I set all the SATA controllers to AHCI?

AHCI is a requirement for TRIM and would be advised to be set before OS installation.
