    There is no point playing with SSD optimization. The firmware (or Windows) will do it for you.

    Was that Hollandic by the way?

    Danish. I'm not really sure if I should keep the program.

    From intel's website:

    Product Overview for IntelĀ® Rapid Storage Technology

    Can Intel RST assist me with single drives too?
    Through AHCI, storage performance is improved with Native Command Queuing (NCQ). AHCI also delivers longer battery life with Link Power Management (LPM), which can reduce the power consumption of the chipset and Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive.

    Sounds like this is something that would be more beneficial for laptops.

    I told you my opinion - no Intel programs are beneficial. I have seen (but not experienced) RST causing boot problems.

    The only valid response I could give would be to suggest to google it, test it and keep it if you want.

    Personally I'd remove it and only install it if it was required for something.

    I have been googling it a bit and some people says it helps with perfomance, so I'm going to have the program installed.

    See this site for an excellent decription of Intel RST drivers http://www.win-raid.com/t2f23-Intel-...QL-v-WHQL.html

    You need to find the 'best' not necessarily latest Intel RST software for your motherboard and install that. You can then uninstall the Intel RST software which doesn't do much which should then leave behind the 'best' Intel RST disk driver.

    Also note my psot here on some other Intel software which I'm wondering if I need Uninstall Intel SDK for OpenCL - CPU Only Runtime Package
