My System Specs

Default difference in firmware

g.skill firmware is doing some good for me this is with FW1370
and the second is with FW1571
The third is with them in raid0 just thought some of you might like to see the difference in FW and to see if anybody else got similar results

Very nice. Looks like the new firmware keeps it steady and adds some bandwidth. But just to make sure...you have nothing eating up SSD activity right? It seems to jump around a lot....

Gingerbee....are you SURE that it has ITGC? I know 1819 has trim but I didnt think G. Skill confirmed ITGC was in it as well (IIRC there is no mention of ITGC in the firmware update log). I say this as OCZ ended up splitting their fw's (fw 1.41 ITGC the one I run & fw 1.4 TRIM version) as ITGC + TRIM capabilities = FAIL (as in chances of bricking a drive). Wonder if GSkill figured out how to do both in same fw.
