I just tried the new SSD Toolbox version 3.1.0 with support for running the SSD Optimizer on RAID 0 volumes. It worked great, and ran fast too.
Of course, the requirements for this to work are rather specific. You MUST have an Intel 7 series chipset board with IRST version 11 installed. The 7 series chipset board must also have the IRST version 11 Option ROM installed, which is part of the board's UEFI/BIOS package. As usual, this feature only works with Intel SSDs.
While this feature is useful only to a relatively small number of users, it does demonstrate Intel's commitment to PC enthusiasts, and is provided free of charge to Intel's customers.
I must say there is one aspect of the new Toolbox that I am not sure I am happy about, but I'll wait to mention it and see if other users notice it.
Really, great and good to know! The main point is that is working on a Z68 chipset, not included in the requirements by Intel. Of course, you have a version 11 OROM and IRST driver on your board, which is the trick. Was the OROM done with a BIOS mod, or provided by ASUS in a BIOS update? I'd love to do this on my P67 board.
Modified BIOS from here (with some modifications by myself) ---> http://www.overclock.net/t/1244232/dl-asus-asrock-msi-bioss-with-updated-raid-rom http://www.overclock.net/t/1244232/dl-asus-asrock-msi-bioss-with-updated-raid-rom
Thanks, I will check for my board in your list!!!
But, as you may know, the link is not working for some reason, just tried it at 1:05AM CDT, 11/04.
I'd love to learn how to do that myself...
Also, no offense, but how do you verify/test that RAID 0 TRIM is working after the OROM update?
