Getting rid of the transparent compression doesn't seem to have hurt the performance at all...it absolutely slaughters all the SandForce drives in the write tests!

GTX 770 replaced with watercooled GTX780...but too lazy to change the sig.

Hey, can someone tell me how well these drives fair on the asmedia controller on the z77 boards. I have a chance at raid 0 with 4 of these drives using the sata 6gbps asmedia controllers. :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

Probably not well at a guess. Do it and post scaling results!

Most of the commonly available ASMedia SATA controllers connect to the system using a single PCIe lane. This configuration doesn't allow sufficient bandwidth for one SATA 6Gb/s SSD much less two or more in RAID.
