I am about to build a "new" system with the following components:
eVGA 790i FTW
2x Intel 80GB G2 in RAID 0
Win7 Pro 64bit
My question is - what is the best procedure for this installation to maximize my new SSD's performance? My initial thoughts were to perform the following:
Install SSD's in SATA 0 and 1 ports (nVidia controller)
Set bios to SATA
Create raid with raid utility
Flash SSD's with newest FW
Boot Win7 and install
Upgrade nForce drivers for mobo
However I'm reading on this board that there are many different drivers you can use for your mobo controller? What would be best for my set?
Well - 109 read and no one answered.. but here's what the results are.
Please let me know what you think - it seems to me the results are low:
This is with two 80GB G2's with latest firmware using non-Nvidia storage drivers in RAID 0.
I should be seeing about 500mb/s seq reads right?
