All the searches i've done so far are inconclusive or misleading or just overwhelming. Can anyone say decisively that there is a garbage collection system that i could use on a raid 0 array of ssd's?
What mobo and drives and drivers would i need?

1) There is no TRIM support for SSDs in RAID configuration yet.
2) Garbage collection is internal to the drive and does not depend on motherboard or drivers. Dang - I had a link yesterday to a good test that someone did, and now I can't find it. I'll edit if I see it.
Different SSDs run from decent GC to ineffective GC to no GC, so do your research carefully.

Can someone else here point out a utility that will TRIM or otherwise condition SSDs in a RAID setup?
