Raid don't support TRIM so if you raid, you lose trim and garbage collection...

PS: You need to check apply signature just under your signature and it have a character limit...

series 7 intel chipsets do have trim support in raid trough a driver or firmware update something like that. I think it is RST driver or firnware I just donw know how to set it up and aas looking for someone who could enlighten me.

WOW You're right, i've learned something today, thanks !! Now for your problem, you need V11 or higher of the intel rapid storage and a Z77 chipset

So download V11.6 here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?DwnldI...

Restart, Put your Motherboard SATA to RAID, Install the drivers, restart and all the settings will be in a control panel in your taskbar (it take 30 seconds to launch so wait a little) Then you'll see you RAID array in there and all the settings you have will be here (just click on the array)

**Read the instructions on the intel website i've just linked... If you don't have floppy, copy this to a usb key and start from the usb key
