Need some help with RAID

7 posts in this topic

My setup consists of the following:

 

Samsung 840 Pro

Corsair Force GT

2x Seagate Barracuda in Raid 0

Western Digital Black

 

This was the first time I setup an array and wanted one large drive with everything else non-raid. One thing that caught my attention was Samsung Magician saying AHCI is deactivated and I'm wondering if I should disregard it? I've tried switching my BIOS to AHCI and get a blue screen (I know there is a workaround), but I'm more concerned if I go through with the fix I'll lose the array. More importantly, is this setup properly?

That is normal you cannot run ahci on a raid volume, the bsod is normal because the Storage drivers are different i'd ignore the error as it is not relevant to your system anymore

Yeah, RAID and AHCI are two different modes, you can't have 2 at once.

Am I in anyway taking a performance hit by having it setup this way? I assume it's just a false positive from the software as it isn't designed to handle RAID.

No performance loss raid0 provides better performance than ahci, and you'd lose your array

What performance do you get our of your samsung 840 pro, the magician software has a performance tab. If that shows good then nothing to worry about.

It was good. I was just wondering it it could be better which isn't the case.
