this is in referance to a new build on p8z68 v pro. while reading through the owners manual, in sec 3.2.2, and the settings for the marvel storage controller. by default, it is set to ahci. i am going to run a raid 0 setup using 2 ssds. during some research, it seems that that setting should be set to raid instead of ahci, is that true or do i just leave it set to ahci? by the way this will be my first build.
you will want to switch it to raid. also, you will need to go to asus' website and download the raid/ahci drivers and put them on a flash drive because the windows installer wont recognize raid by default
You'll need to run your RAID from the Intel ports. ASUS and every other manufacturer decided to use non-RAID Marvell controllers on their Z68 mainboards -- I haven't seen one yet that can do Marvell RAID.
Make sure you run a garbage-collection program often on those RAIDed SSDs -- putting them in RAID automatically turns off the automatic TRIM garbage collection.
