    Help with storing multiple SSDs

    My main question is in the thread title. I wanted to know if anyone has had experience storing SSDs unmounted for an extended period. Also, I wanted to get ideas of things I've never heard of.

    Help with storing multiple SSDs

    You guys are awesome! Spending any time on an idiot like me! I appreciate all your suggestions. I wouldn't even dream of such a build if I hadn't already had a couple of years of solid performance from my old faithful RocketRaid 2782 fully poplulated with 32 SSDs in a RAID 0 array. My audio...

    RocketRaid 2782

    Hi guys, Newbie here. I do a lot of audio processing. A while back the bottleneck was the size of the files. The 2782 raid card solved that problem. I had no problems at all running it on my Asus P6X58D motherboard for at least a couple of years. It was fully populated with 32 SSD's and had...
