Hello,
I have a Samsung 830 SSD. I have It on a SATA 3.0 port on a Z68 mobo set to AHCI and have Windows 7 64bit. Installation went well and everything is running great!

However I have a couple of questions. First I forgot to update the firmware of the SSD at install and have already added lots of programs and stuff to it. Will updating the firmware now wipe it all clean?

Also, I have not installed Intel Rapid Storage Technology but did update the intel chipset. Is Intel Rapid storage necessary?
