    It'll reuse existing cells for writing new data after TRIMming. So, new cells are not used thereby increasing lifetime of the drive.

    I thought it was no longer a problem in the new ssd. For example, 960 pro has 800tbw of lifetime, I think my grandchildren could continue to use it.

    Well your grand children might have an 800TB drive PCIe 5.0 for downloading torrents, steam games, downloading Win 10 every day and nuking it, etc etc....

    Maybe you can help me. Do you know a way for Windows 10 to boot properly after switching on the Bios from Ahci to Raid? Before I started Safe mode to take the change but now it does not work...

    See this thread
    Uninstall existing RAID driver in device manager and use the cmd as mentioned in the thread.

    This method no longer works. Something to change with Creators Update ....

    I don't notice it working, but I also don't see my benchmarks decrease over time like I did before optimizing and then enabling the automatic write optimization.

    You have completed the optimization, you can check for performance drops by running the benchmarks occasionally, for me the performance hardly varied over normal run variance differences.

    Silent, but efficient :)

    Are you sure? Since this method is suggested by MSFT TechNet.
    I tried it when I got my PC and I tried on Anniversary update which is RS1 and aside from not allowing Unsigned Driver Install on RS2 it must be same.
    I'll see. I use Dual Boot Dual SSDs for Linux and Windows. It took me a month to get Linux boot perfectly.

    Hi, this weekend I tried to create a raid 0 of 2x 960 Pro 1tb. These are the Pro and Cons:

    (Hardware detail Alienware 17 R4 7820hk, 32 RAM, 2 ports pcie 3.0 x4).

    Pro:
    - duplicate the space x1.96 tb
    - 25% max writing speed (Raid0 3.000mb/s vs. 2.000mb/s 960 Pro)

    Cons

    - more CPU consumption, + 10%
    - higher temperature +10 c (When the Raid is used)
    - In normal use, the increase in writing performance is not perceived.

    The reading values are practically equal to those of a 960 Pro 1tb. In my case, only Raid 0 is justified to duplicate the space...
