    New Firmware and Raid 0


      I plan on putting a pair of x25 g2 in a new Dell xps 8000(i7860) in raid 0. The 2 drives I have are the oem version and are untouched (SSDSA2MH080G2C1). Should I even bother trying to put the new firmware on these drives? Thanks for any input.

          I have the XPS 8000 too.  Just did the firmware update and it hosed my Windows 7 installation.  Drive won't boot Windows 7 anymore.  You might want to wait.  I don't know if it's a Dell problem or Intel problem.  The SSD claims to have a successful firmware update.  The Dell BIOS claims a SMART error.
