My System Specs


You don't need any kind of tweaks. I installed Vista Business 64-bit on dual 60GB Vertex drives in RAID0 on Intel ICH10R. I had to load drivers so setup could see the RAID array but that would have happened even if they weren't SSDs.

Setup your RAID array with a 128KB stripe (max) and you're set. Inside Windows, disable defrag, page file, indexing, hibernation, all that crap.

I get about 410MB/s average read from HD Tune 3.5 straight out of the box. Both my Vertex drives came with the 1.3 FW so I didn't need to flash anything (thank god).
