    Hi guys

    Since my Optibay-drive has completely forgotten how to do fast read speeds, I'm going to replace it. I've got a M4 64gb installed as a boot drive, but I know that the speed is capped by Sata II's limited bandwidth. Therefore, I've considered installing a second M4 in the Optibay and running raid 0, but I'm not sure if there will be any significant increase in performance? (especially during boot up and launching apps). What's your thoughts? :)

    Have a good one!
    -Mathias
