- 4 x PCI Express
An introduction to SSD's 03/06/2014
It worked once I got the new one in(first one came missing /half/ of the drives, basically the raid bios didn't see 2 out of 4). Even was able to run windows on it straight out of my x58 bios.
This card boils down to a few people. Those that want to experience SSD's for the first time but are poor as dirt. Or those that utterly need a replacement and are poor as dirt. It's wonky, half works, and is utterly slow as dirt. BUT, it will work as a substitute briefly, if you can get one that actually works the first time around. Stuttering from the OS(especially firefox on saving a file!) are a common place, an issue that was removed with a pair of 840pro SSD's in raid-0
It's a fun little toy card, I have it set to run a minecraft server now, and that's it. Yes, the server would run faster on a good 840pro, but I'd already bought it, and figured instead of craigslisting this off to some poor sap, I'd keep it out of the reach of people that are not tech savvy in the first place, because anyone worth their salt will pass.
