I know there is lot of people unable or failed to raid 0 on X79 or X99 chipset on 2 ssd or more. So i bring full proof solution for raid 0 on X79 X99 series. Just follow wat i write step by step. do not deviate or be creative. X79 can raid two SSD. X99 raid Six ssd possible.

ASUS seems to have updated their Intel Rapid Storage Technology enterprise driver software V3.0.0.xxxx (e.g. 3011) package so use ASUS drivers rather than accidentally using the wrong drivers.Create a folder on Flash Drive e.g. 'RAID' containing extracted Intel RSTe V3.0.0 3011 drivers

First secure erase SSD - this will erase unwanted come along ssd solfwares - RIVE mobo bios provide solfware for secure erase ssd
A. Ctrl + I -> Deleted RAID - this check unwanted raid volume present. if present erase it else continue B .
B. Boot using either Windows Installer or other Formatting boot utility and delete any partitions, and reformat ; non-boot drives
C. BIOS, change Intel SATA -> RAID ; options may include Hot-swap (fine for data, never boot drives)
D. Ctrl + I -> Setup RAID; before OS if boot drive
E. Save and Exit = Yes

2. Before Re-Installing:
A. Shutdown and physically unplug ALL SATA cables to any non-boot drives
B. insert your already make RSTe usb driverj

3. Installing: Press F8 and Boot from window CD, select 'Install now ->'

'Flash Drive':\...RSTe_V300xxxx_XPWin7\RSTe_V300xxxx_XPWin 7\Driver\Disk\64bit\iaStorA.inf
C. load driver on usb drive and if you see error message prompt to load a 32bit sign with 64 bit driver. load 32bit from driver directory/32bit, you will find another driver ended with (64bit) this is sign driver and continue install window even you encounter another error message.
D. lastly installl rste solfware controller . And it is done.

Mostly plp encountered the message of 32 bit sign 64 bit driver , they discontinue the installation. And unable to raid x79.
