Yes ,But the sys has to be set for RAID.
with my set up could i use a different brand than intell ssd providing it is still over 20 gig and less than 60 gig
as i am finding it hard to get an intell 311 20 gig sdd i have looked everywhere and no one sell's them
Yes Being as there would no need to use the Intel Tool Box , Being as No Info is stored on the drive it's just being used for cashe. So any brand would work , Just remember you get what you pay for . In my good ( High End ) Machines I've stucked with Intel But with other machines I have used Western Digital SSDs and they seam very reliable .
i use a hitachi 1 tb, and a crucial 64gb ssd, and the system is working well, in fact before raid i had two ssd drives, and they were alot slower than what i have now; the only thing is that i need to increase my volume size, and i follow the directions but i can't find the increase volume exept for the stripe side of the array, which by the way since it is 64gb is there any real advantage to enable "write-back cache"
