Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

Kingston SSDNow V+ 128gb. I've tweaked/customized nothing. This is out of the box, in to my new Dell 7100, and all software installed (so not a fresh OS or anything)

Looks nice

The random reads are the most important, and random writes.
These are what OS and programs use the most.

You can run AS SSD Benchmark and post the results here.

D/L and save the RAID driver for your computer from Dell's website.
Not the 'Intel Rapid storage technology' program, you can install it after the driver if you want to.

Close all programs, save and close all files, you will have to re-boot.

Install the RAID driver, when it completes it will ask for a re-boot.

Re-boot your computer, immediately go to the BIOS and change the setting to 'RAID on', save and exit.

It should startup in RAID mode, if not or a blue screen, re-boot again.

If you still get a blue screen, reboot, set it back to autodetect. It should run as before.

Let me know the progress.
ok I downloaded and saved the file from dells website. Then I ran it and it extracted all the drivers into something like C:\dell\drivers... Now how do I go about installing the drivers from there? There is no .exe file or anything to run.

If there is no exe, then you need to go to the ATA controller entry in your device manager directly and select "Update Drivers" and then point it to the folder with the downloaded drivers in it.

ok I went to device manager and clicked the drop down for IDE/ATA ATAPI controllers and it listed these

ATA Channel 0
ATA Channel 0
ATA Channel 1
ATA Channel 1
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller

I tried to manually update all of those but it said the best drivers were already installed.

Well at this point, you can force it but I hesitate to take you down that route :/ I don;t want you to end up with a broken install. It may be that the drivers that are installed are the same drivers or even a newer set than the ones you downloaded. Would have to spelunk the INF files and all sorts of other work to tell for sure.

Huh ok. I'm not too worried about it. Especially if its only for a minor increase in performance, if any.
