Kingston HyperX 120gb vs Corsair Force GT in Raid 0

I am contemplating purchasing either two Kingston HyperX 120gb SSDs or two Corsair force GT 120gb SSDs for raid 0 configuration. My MoBo will most likely be a GigaByte Z68X-UD3H-B3. I have not seen benchmark comparison of these two SSDs in RAID 0. I am particularly interested in the 4k read speeds.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thank you.

RAID0 will greatly improve sequential read speeds and not do much for seek times. You probably won't notice a difference from putting the drives in RAID0.

While there aren't benchies on those two drives head-to-head (unlikely for any pair you pick), go to Toms' last article on the 3 GB/s project and look for how 4k reads scale with number of SSDs in a case that has been benched.

I have the Kingston Hyper X 120 GB for 4 days now, i really have to say that i am impressed with it. The read/write speeds advertised for the drive are real ^^. As for Raid 0...i dont know if its worth it ^^ having in mind that SSDs have more reliability issues then HDDs.
