Thanks! I had no intentions of setting up RAID but I got such a good deal on one drive I went back for a second. Two 120Gb drives came out cheaper than a 160Gb drive of the same make!!! Managing 1 larger volume instead of 2 smaller just made more sense to me (it’s easier for the GF as well!!!). And the performance increase was mind blowing!!

RAID may not be for everyone, but if you have 2 of the same SSD’s I say give it a try. Mathematically it may be more of a risk, but as long as you perform frequent backups you should be fine.

I've only had a quick look at the thread but i'm pretty sure my ssd is under-performing.

Anyone have any ideas how I can change this?

Thanks

I don't think you are in AHCI mode. Read this tutorial to show you how to do it without reinstalling. I'm not sure what the MV91xx is. It is usually either msachi (microsofts ahci drivers) or Intel's version of AHCI (isastore I believe). Read the other tweeks on SSDs. You really don't have to do a lot, just a few of the important ones.

This info is in the top left corner. I don't understand why yours says SCSI. It should say ATA device or at least IDE. You do have it connected to a sata port don't you? I believe your board has sata2 and sata3 ports. Connect it to a sata3 port and follow the tutorial and make sure that port is in ahci mode.

Why?

BTW How did you deduce that info? - Edit: Nevermind I see it. Yeah it's Marvell.

Thanks.

I'm not familar wiyh the Marvel driver, but I still don't think it should say SCSI. I have used AMD drivers and Microsoft drivers and both cases AS SSD said ATA device. Even if he is not in AHCI it should say IDE I would think.

If you look at the AS SSD image it says mv91xx, that's the Marvell controller.
