Any SSD with TRIM support.
They are drivers.
Quoted from Intel download page: "Intel® Rapid Storage Technology Driver for Intel Desktop Boards" and "Installs the Intel® Rapid Storage Technology (RAID) driver version 22.214.171.1244 for Intel® Desktop Boards."
You may need/wish to do the F6 install, if you wish to boot to a new install of Windows 7 with raid enabled in your bios using the Intel chipset. This will install the drivers, not the control interfeace, that is why they state this "Download the driver (STOR_allOS_126.96.36.1994_PV.exe) and one of the following F6 Driver Diskettes (depending on your operating system)".
STOR_allOS_188.8.131.524_PV.exe contains the control interface and driver, but if you already have the driver installed, all it will do is look to see if you have the latest driver. And, since you probably do, it will just install the control interface.
Anyone, please correct me if I am wrong

You have a 1500GB SSD array?
Are you a pimp?
Raid access time is much higher than single drive. Is it noticeable in daily usage?
AWESOME. The debate is over.
A little with HDs. Probably not at all with SSDs.
there 2xSeagate Barracuda 1.5TB in raid 0
Is it RAID-1??? 2*1.5TB in RAID-0 should give 3.0TB??? Or is it 2*750GB???
Maximum RAID volume size is 2TB.
raid 0 two volumes of 1.5tb
3tb doesnt work for the post from DirectorC
but 2tb didnt want to work for me for some reason
Change your cluster size and you can run up to 64TB if I recall correctly
EDIT: hmm maybe not in raid though will have too look into it
EDIT EDIT: You can do it on raid too, with the right hardware and software (xp x64 or newer) including intel ICH 8/9/10R
No, it's the hard limitation of MBR. GPT solves this problem, but I'm not sure his BIOS can boot from GPT disks.
Hold on One minute!
This is simply NOT true. I know you guys are excited about this, but if you read the tech notes and FAQ on the intel website, they give you specifics.
The trim will work for drives setup through a raid controler that are NOT part of the raid members. Meaning that you can have two hard drives set up and a third non raid member drive. The non member drive will be detected and able to comunicate through the controller.
Those disk in RAID will not be trimmed.
Sorry to burst you guys bubble.
