I'm planning on getting another identical Samsung F3 1TB drive as I'm running out of storage space for movies, games etc. And being completely new to the concept of raiding up 2 hard drives, can it co-exist fine without a problem along with my Intel SSD which has the OS on it? The Intel and Samsungs will be connected to 3 of the 4 Intel SATA ports on my motherboard. Also, I should set this raid0 up as a hardware raid via the BIOS (or RAID manager if there is one), and as 128k stripe? What else should I expect to happen, i.e. will Windows 7 require a driver or anything before the raid is usable? I've had a look through my mobo manual, and found that I can set up raid by going into the BIOS and changing it to RAID (other choices being IDE and AHCI). Currently it's on AHCI and changing it to RAID would disable AHCI and my OS drive (on the SSD), which is not what I want I think. Correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks p.s. I sync my storage drive with an external drive via usb2 every month, so data loss is the least of my worries.
