I cannot seem to find a lot of topics on this subject, or perhaps my googling skills need improvement.

I just purchased two Corsair Neutron 128GB SSDs that I want to configure in RAID 0 with TRIM. I was thinking I would go with my current CPU and just get a new Motherboard so that TRIM will work and everything should be great...

My CPU is Intel Core i5-2400 which supports LGA1155. This leaves me thinking I would buy the DZ77BH-55K motherboard and then I will configure my system
Drive C: Operating System (windows 7) and Program Files - RAID 0 (2 Corsair Neutron 128GB (256GB total))
Drive D: DVD Burner
Drive E: DVD Burner
Drive F: Crucial M4 (Active Files)
Drive G: WD Black (Archived Files)

My Drive C will be the one where I have to setup RAID 0 with TRIM... and to my understanding as long as the motherboard has the latest drivers, then TRIM will be active.

Any suggestions on how I should ensure that TRIM is active or can I worry about that after I have installed Windows 7?
If I'm missing something let me know.

Gday FUState.
Some info for you as a starter, (worth following his links). > http://www.rwlabs.co...icle.php?id=697

Using RAID 0 for the Boot drive is inherently risky, a failure means loss of all DATA with little or no chance of recovery. I don't think (anybody?) it is possible to create an image of RAID 0.
You must have a rigoerous backup method in place.
