Windows 7: Windows 7 and SSD in raid performance

Windows 7 and SSD in raid performance


I have two of these SSD's, and I have set them up in raid0 (with motherboard raid-mode setup as I dont have any raid controller).

My Windows 7 uses pretty long time to boot, especially with SSD's in raid.

What is causing this?

I can tell you that the boot process has a lot of variables...and the hard drives are just one. RAID with SSDs (especially just two disks) isn't really that useful, because you gain in some areas, but suffer in others that are key to Windows usage.

That being said, is the boot time really that important? How often are you rebooting? How does the system run once it is fully booted?
