Wow, I now have a craving to build a computer again.

But not pink.

Well, almost a year later I thought I'd run CrystalDiskMark again to see how my SSDs are holding up. I have yet to upgrade the firmware, run TRIM or garbage collection etc etc.

Here's how the numbers stack up: (The new scores are on the left, old ones on the right)

Strange. The most obvious thing to me is the Seq and 512k write speeds going down. Also, the Seq read went up? Regardless, I haven't noticed any kind of slow down whatsoever. What do you guys think? To my knowledge there is still no TRIM support on RAID arrays. Also, the Samsung SSD Magician software won't even read my SSDs as SSDs because they're in RAID.

You guys think I should fool with it? Should I wipe them, upgrade the firmware, and redo it or just let it go for now? Thoughts? Thanks.

hey enip, if they run great as is, i'd leave them be, though a secure erase on them and a fresh install is always pretty perky :)
have you tried the new storage bench, anvils storage utilities?

great ssd bench, a bit easier on the drives than cdm and as ssd
