RAID0 with P55-CD53
« on: 14-December-10, 12:19:32 »

Hi guys!

I just got 2 new WD Caviar Black 1TB HDD's and really want to set the disks up with striping. I already have a SSD disk for my system OS, so these disks will not contain a OS, just files. I currently run Win7 x64, BIOS v1.9 (2010-09-02)

My question/s:

Q1. Can I somehow avoid the RAID option/controller in the bios/startup? 
Q2. Is it enough to choose RAID0 in Disk Management and set it up?
Q3. If Q2 is "Yes", do I get the same speed (approx) using this method?
Q4. If Q1 is "No", do I have to install a fresh OS to get it working properly?

I am currently using the "AHCI" mode due to my Intel SSD. (T.R.I.M.)

Thanks in advance for any help/pointers you may provide!
