Product Description

The RevoDrive X2 PCI-Express SSD is an innovative storage solution for enthusiasts and prosumers to make the most of their desktops and workstations, upgrading the original architecture to deliver unprecedented speeds and higher capacities. The RevoDrive family gets its edge by eliminating the SATA II (3Gbps) bottleneck and leveraging a PCIe x4 interface, delivering superior speeds over 740MB/s sequential speeds and random small file writes up to 120,000 IOPS, nearly triple the throughput of other high-end SATA based solutions. The RevoDrive X2 uses an onboard RAID 0 design by employing four SandForce-1200 controllers to maximize data access and bandwidth. Unlike competing PCIe solutions the RevoDrive X2 is bootable, ensuring the satisfaction of quicker start-ups, load times, and computing, all while promoting cooler, quieter, and more energy efficient conditions compared to traditional mechanical hard drives. Available in 100GB to 960GB capacities, the OCZ RevoDrive X2 provides ample room for data warehousing, applications, multimedia files, and operating systems. The RevoDrive X2 is backed by a 3-year warranty and tech support for the ultimate peace of mind for your high-performance hardware investment.While the RevoDrive X2 will simply plug and play for the vast majority of platforms for these particular motherboards OCZ recommends the following: -Asus Crosshair IV – Please check with motherboard manufacturer for BIOS update to enable boot over PCIe. -Biostar T-Power I45: RevoDrive is only detected in Slot 1 AND only if a PCIe GPU is used. -DFI DK-X58-T3EH6: Not detected in PCIe Slot 2 (x4 slot). -EVGA X758 SLI – Please check with motherboard manufacturer for BIOS update to enable Boot over PCIe. -Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD7 Not detected in slots 1,3,4 (it is detected in 2,5,6) -XFX 780i SLI – Bios must be upgraded to P09 (or later).

Recently I decided to build myself a new, screaming fast, ultra-quiet desktop computer. The centerpiece of this new machine was to be the latest and greatest in super-high-speed, zero noise storage devices - the OCZ Technology RevoDrive X2.

I spent a week carefully choosing the components, then gleefully constructed my new killer computer. After building it and loading all my software, I was dismayed to find that its performance was not particularly impressive. It didn't seem to be any faster than my prior machine. In particular I noticed that the SSD access was no great shakes. Moreover, it would seem to lock up from time to time, especially when installing new software (which I was doing a lot in those first few days.)

My first step in attempting to figure out what was going on was to run the Windows Experience Index (WEI) to see how Microsoft thought my machine stacked up. To my amazement the WEI showed a reading of only 5.9 for the hard drive. [The peculiar scale of the WEI runs from 1 to 7.9 - don't ask me why.] While a reading of 5.9 isn't dismal, I had assumed that the fastest drive money could buy would score a perfect 7.9. Also, my previous computer with an older, earlier generation, Intel SSD had scored 7.1 on the Windows Experience Index. Clearly something was very wrong.

I surfed over to the OCZ Technology web site looking for answers. Unfortunately OCZ's website is very short on support. There is lots and lots of information about OCZ products, especially documents explaining why SSD's are so wonderful - in particular why OCZ SSD's are so great. There are a few brief FAQs, but not much else.

So first off this thing is crazy fast. Thats the pro... The con? It was a total PITA to get it setup and working properly. After much research I found out by running through all the support threads at the OCZ forums that this is caused by the motherboards treating the RevoDrive as a video card. There are alot of powersaving features to shutdown the video card at idle to keep it from sucking juice but this has very adverse effects on the RevoDrive. So essentially what you need to do to get this card to work properly is disable all power save features possible in the motherboard BIOS and also in the OS. After having done this it works properly for me even tho my motherboard could be considered ancient and not very well supported (EVGA 750i SLI FTW) and has an ancient BIOS with the latest update being 12/09. Most mobo manufacturers are fixing compatibility issues with BIOS updates for their current motherboards but don't count on support for something as old as mine.

One more note. Even with all the workarounds and power features disabled some people are having issues with data corruption on shutdown of the PC if the RevoDrive is your boot device. This isnt a problem for me really since my PC is on 24x7 and has alot of idle time available for the file system to do its self healing (or at least in the case of NTFS as supposedly Linux file systems dont have this problem).

FYI this is the method I used to get it to work:

YMMV so don't blame me if it doesn't work for you! Everyone seems to have different results and your tech level definitely plays a major part in the whole thing.

I bought this drive on another site based on a recommendation from someone I respect. After checking ocz's site for motherboard compatibility, I made the plunge. The initial setup was a breeze as I had disconnected all my hard drives prior to installing windows (I highly recommend this, otherwise windows will install some boot files to the other drives). I had a problem after attaching my 4 other SATA drives where my motherboard didn't want to boot to the revodrive when it saw thie others. I fixed this by changing my SATA mode from IDE to AHCI. After this and setting the boot priority mode to the revodrive, everything worked fine. Windows 7 ultimate boots in about 7 seconds and benchmarks show read/write speeds of up to 742MB/s. That's crazy fast. So I recommend this drive to anyone with some moderate skills with pc building with the admonition to read the motherboard compatibility list and your motherboard manual. Compatibility list can be found here [...]
Happy trails.

As the others state here, when it works this thing is a blazing monster (really liked it). However, after 5 days there was data corruption so unfortunately I was forced to return it (hopefully their next version will resolve this as I see another here had the same problem. I bought mine from Microcenter, at the time of purchase the specialist did warn me that they had sold 7 of them and that all 7 had been returned for technical issues so I should treat it as purely experimental and avoid booting off it until I was sure it was working reliably. I chose to ignore the warnings (except fortunately avoided booting from it) because of the advertised speed. In any case, eagerly awaiting the next X3 version or maybe an Intel foray into the PCIe SSD side for better reliability :-)
