    What's the best way to instal, on an EVGA Z77 FTW board?

    I would set the 2 SSD's as a raid0 array then use the spinner for back ups, but that's just me.

    Especially since you have a 7 series board, you should be fine with RAID-0ing SSDs because trim works.

    Just make sure you install 11.7 or newer Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers.

    Btw, which SSDs did you buy?

    Any driver after 11.2 will give trim in R0 on z77 chipset. 11.7 is a slow driver compared to 11.2 or 11.6 irst driver.
