Has anyone experienced this? I'm on a Z77 chipset board with ROM 11+ and TRIM enabled (I've checked and TRIM is working) yet Windows 8 feels more sluggish installed in two Samsung 840 SSDs on RAID 0 than in a single one. Even though benchmarks with CrystalDiskMark say differently (the raid 0 array has double the throughput of the single SSD) programs load faster, file explorer moves faster, etc., on the single SSD. What could it possibly be? Is the Raid 0 controller adding overhead of some kind?
