Windows 7: What is Intel Rapid Storage Technology? Do I need it?

Far as i know that driver is a Utility and is not really needed for anything

I used it and had more BSODS then i could handle and all signs from the DMP file pointed to that particular driver

Since then i have been smooth sailing so it isn't needed also when you have Asmedia drivers they work just as good so it shouldn't matter
