Hello everyone, as you can tell im new to this forum and i decided to come by and ask for some help.
Ill try to explain this as simply as i can. So i have an 80gb SSD for my Operating system, i also have 1 640gb Caviar Black and a 1.5tb Caviar black. What i want to do is use the SSD as the primary OS drive and setup the 2 Caviar blacks on RAID 0 configuration, but from what i hear the Blacks are not that good when it comes to RAID 0 so i would like to confirm that with someone here.
My delima is this, will i have to load the Intel RAID drivers at Windows installation?
I know i have to switch the BIOS to RAID (XHD) mode but since the SSD is plugged in, will PC place that into a RAID as well? or should i install the OS and then plug the Hard drives in?
Would i see much of a preformance boost in RAID 0 with the blacks compared to just using one?
lastly would it be best just using the blacks seperatly?
This will be done on a fresh install and the Caviar Blacks will be used for all my other Data and programs.
I would really appriciate any help from the community, as ive been trying to figure this out for a couple days now.
