How did you install Windows? I initially wanted to use the Windows driver, but no discs could be found until I loaded the AMD RAID driver.

Patriot Torqx M28 128GB

This is on Win 7 x64, P35 chipset, ICH9, Intel 9.6.0.1014 (AHCI & Trim-enabled, 3 Mar 2010) driver. The SSD is a Patriot Torqx M28 with the new VBM19C1Q firmware. After the firmware update, the drive was completely zeroed-out with a secure erase tool. The system image was restored using Windows Image Backup.

Please don't take this wrong, but I know how to load the RAID driver during installation. If you read the posts, tw33k stated he had the same motherboard but was using the Windows driver. I wanted to know how he installed Windows using a Windows driver--which he responded by stating that he wasn't running RAID.

Curious...

What is the preferred way in which everyone benches their SSD's using the HD Tune app? After I set my RAID up, I posted a screen-shot showing a "roller coaster." Today, I was playing with the app, and went into the options. On the left, I selected Benchmark. On the right, i moved the slider to Accurate and for block size I selected 512KB. Afterward, of course, I ran a bench and was somewhat surprised by the result. No longer a "roller coaster," but rather a fairly straight line as I have had previous to setting up the array and similar to screen-shots I've seen of others.

AS SSD IMHO is the best test for a SSD.

Alex Intelligent Software - Downloads: AS SSD Benchmark


Although many use HD Tune, and like it, its not really intended for SSDs where-as AS SSD is.

I have heard tell, that HD Tune is really not good for a SSD because it can actually cause them to loose performance.

I honestly do not know if this is true in any form, but I I like to use AS SSD just because its designed specifically for SSD benchmarking.
