Thanks guys I appreciate it. The RevoDrive is a beast that just needs some TLC for it to be killer choice.

A full testbed w/Win 7 upgrade is in the works. Though a bad mobo has put that plan on temporary hold. I might just skip intel x58 chipset and wait for the next gen.

The reason why I still use XP is precisely for scenarios like the revodrive. TRIM hides MANY sins. XP is a worst case scenario for SSDs. It removes TRIM from the equation and gives a good look at the real workings of the controller(s) and the pros and cons of its design. I may opt for a AMD rig as their "issues" with TRIM may just make it the NEXT gen's "worst case scenario".
