  1. Enthusiasts have been squeezing extra performance out of processors, memory and graphics cards via overclocking for as long as I can remember. The challenge and ultimate satisfaction of achieving a stable overclock can often be more rewarding than the performance...

    Once SATA Express comes out, this will actually be useful.

    I'd be nervous as hell o/c'ing my SSD, particularly as it serves as it my boot drive and holds my OS. Will be interesting to see how/if they can pull this off without damaging the drive or corrupting the data.

    Yeah I definitely wont try this until it provides a large enough benefit while still keeping my info safe. Heck, RAID 0 might be as risky but faster.

    How would you know that anything was wrong with your OC? Is the system going to lock up or are you going to go back to get your data and find out that its all corrupt? It will be interesting to see this none the less.
  6. Risk? Who cares?
    Overclocked Raid 0 challenge accepted.

    You gain little to no speed, and actually hinder the performance of your SSD by putting it in Raid 0 depending on the size of your SSD.


    I too would not overclock my SSD, unless I gained substantial throughput. I would rather let someone else try firstt LOL
  9. This is just silly.

    I need a practical overclock on something useful, like my keyboard. Oh, and a 2Gb buffer for my Superman typing..

    I'll sit this one out thanks. I'm not interested in OC'ing my SSD. It's fast enough. I am interested in OC'ing my keyboard though... :p

  11. Your source contradicts your statements for the most part.
    SSDs are capable of many iops, and the Intel chip set firmware they
    Used to accomplish raid 0 is not capable of handling the combined
    Iops. This is why in certain cases there was no benefit and slight
    Performance degradation. Raid 0 will improve performance in every
    Metric but it requires that a real raid card is used.
