SSD RAID0 on nvidia 780i, very bad results...
Hi all.

I have a ASUS P5NT-Deluxe motherboard, and I never had problems with the RAID (on my previous 680i I had many problems), but now I have bought 2 OCZ Vertex SSD.

The results are very bad on RAID0.

RAID0:

I use WinXP 64bits, and the lastest drivers...

Hello,

I am currently experiencing similiar problems with my RAID 0. My motherboard is a ASUS M3N78, GeForce 8200 and the result of the transer rate is not that good.

I am sure that this must be related to the drivers. Can you please post the version of your drivers? Latest NForce drivers 15.24 don't have a good performance when using RAID.

Hi armstrong82.

I am using the nforce 15.23 driver... this is the last driver for WinXP 64bits.

Many of us have problems with the nvidia SATA controller, especially with RAID configurations..

I recommend you to use the drivers that came with your motherboard on CD. Mine are different frome the ones provided by NVidia. Performance seems to be not at its best but faster than the latest NVidia drivers.

the latest drivers on the ASUS Web page are the 15.23 Beta. The final (no Beta) drivers are the 9.46 (january 2008).

You were right.

I tried the old drivers and it is true that work better and improve performance, but is not sufficient...

All nforce boards with drivers made after the invention of the useless vista op. are hopeless @ running any good quality sata hdd's.

Hey, I've been researching SSD's on the 780i and unfortunately the Nvidia chipset does not like running any SSD's in RAID 0. Unfortunately the only way you can get good performance with a SSD RAID 0 array is to use a PCI-E RAID card/controller. The Chipset is fine for single SSD's so you'll either have to break up your array or get something like this:
