Didn't work

I set the voltages as you suggested, -0.01V as the steps permitted were either .01 Higher or lower than your recommendation. Had another BSOD overnight, so tried memtest. V4.0 as on your website...

I genuinely don't know if software raid will suit many people, but I can't see why it shouldn't in fact support win7 trim with the latest firmware. If it does, and only experiment will find out,...

If that's true, I am pleased - my SSDs have been supporting TRIM all along, and all my concerns have been unfounded. I think it would be nice to have it confirmed by a Corsair rep. Is it new...

No, I didn't want to make you cross, either. I am not asking the normal "does trim work in raid" question that you've answered a million times. The difference is that I am talking about SOFTWARE...

X-Series Fioormware update questions.

I notice you have backed off with the X256 firmware. OK, it didn't work for me, anyway. Do you have any expectation of changing this position in the future?

Are you saying that trim will only work with Intel controller and driver? Do we know of controllers that do not pass through the trim commands? I got the impression from previos posts that to...

Software RAID and TRIM

Does anyone know whether a pair of disks cobbled together with win7 software RAID and the default MS driver (rather than 'hardware' RAID with a RAID driver) would support TRIM? I will try it next...

Interesting, in a way, that I have failed using the same motherboard that Ramguy has succeeded with. Mine was trying to upgrade x256 from fw 1.1 - lower256.exe. RG didn't say what he upgraded, nor...

It occurs to me that it may be the automatic windows update triggering the problem - i.e. it has to do a restart, and fails doing that - or, indeed, an antivirus update or something like. Why not...

I think you'll find that doing benchmarks wrtites quite a lot of 'temp' files. My estimation is that ATTO, for example, has to write about 4GB of data to do its thing. That is a massive proportion...

Davyc, you are right, running a benchmark all the time is dumb. I reckon ATTO writes about 4GB for one execution - about 2% of my available free space. If I were using a 64GB SSD, it would be more...
