  1. if you have them in raid...well typically you want two IDENTICAL drives when doing anything in raid (from what i've learnt)

    I have another set of raid 0 with two diff 500gb 5400rpm (2.5)
    1 is WD and another is Hitchi it doesn't happen
    The WD has 16 mb cache the other one has 8mb cache
    It's Clearly not alike

    You think this is the reason?

    It is the most likely reason i can think about without going through multiple defragmentation cycles, re-formatting both drives to clean state, AND upgrading to the most current firmware for each drive. Basically try the three steps i listed, and if they still do not work properly, then you may have a problem with raid, or even maybe just one drive is not working properly. It will be a trial and error fix
  4. I will try to separate them and she how they work.... If one it's not working good I guess ill use my warranty...
    Thanks for the help
  5. I took off the raid and now they are in AHCI mode
    Now when I unplugged the blank one that got nothing to do with windows I get error there is no windows

    Why when I setup windows it attach both of the ssds????

    Can't format both of them 1 is the windows so it ok but the other is empty how do I cancel that windows won't use both of the ssd and each will be on his own

    They still plugged in where I did Raid SATA PM and SATA PS

    I'm using motherboard G1 sniper 3
  6. when installing windows it should give you an option to put it on either one or the other. If it does not, it means that for some reason the drives are still tethered together
