Yes, you will have problems on two counts.

1. You will lose the ability to pass on the "trim" command, and that can impact your ssd performance.

2. You might win some synthetic benchmarks, but you will not be able to tell any difference in performance. I know, I have tried it.

It'll make the SSDs wear out WAY faster...

That being said, you won't get any benefit out of it anyway, and will have twice the chances of losing all your data, so just don't bother doing it.

The problem comes when the ssd needs to do an update, and there are no free nand blocks.
The ssd must then do a read/rewrite cycle to do an update.
TRIM works by freeing up nand blocks when windows deletes a file. Otherwise, deleting a file will involve a read/rewrite cycle.

And... putting both ssd's in a raid array increases your chance of catastrophic failure. You lose all data if either drive fails.
OCZ, more so than crucial has had more than it's share of failures.
