there are verious types of raid... these are but a few that can be done with 2 hard drives.

raid o = stripe = one huge drive
raid 1 = mirror = almost like a backup ( a copy of the other hard drive)

the raid you are talking about is raid 0 that is making one huge drive. it is very easy to setup.

when your pc boots up, you will need to go into the bios.
there is an option in the bios to change the hdd's from ide to raid. once you have changed the setting hit F10 and enter.

now i should say unplug you other hard drives that you are not going to need so you do not raid the wrong hdd's.

now when the pc starts booting or going through the run cycle it is going to ask you to hit a few keys to sort out the raid. so when the time comes hit Ctrl + i once in there create a new raid. then you want it to be strip or raid 0. name it what ever you want to call it. then select the hard drives you want to use. then save. once done it will boot up and carry on doing what ever. .

if the raid setup does not work, go into management and format the hard drives. then it will be usable.

then install ( if you want ) intels software to keep an eye on your raid setup.

AFAIK raid has to be setup in the bios BEFORE OS installation. You can backup your game data and steamapps folder to another drive or flash drive then just copy it back over once you have everything installed and set up. Refer to your mobo owners manual it should have instructions on getting RAID 0 set up.

Hey, if it's your computer, no matter how many times I hear "I don't need to backup, I won't care!", there's always that one file that was on the drive that you need, and it will fail... External Backup Drives are very cheap now, and if you have a networked drive and Win7Pro then you can backup on your network. I currently have an Apple Time Capsule backing up 3 laptops and 2 desktops in my house. It's saved me twice already. Granted, I run a business and my files are indeed irreplaceable (mostly $$$ related), but even the most modest PC's HDD will at some point have critical data on it, and it's one head collision away from being trash (or a very expensive Drive recovery service bill)

Backup should always be considered, just food for thought!

It's very easy w/ that MB -- set RAID option in bios then save settings -- reboot and enter RAID setup during POST. I have my F3's short stroked in RAID0 128k 250GB for OS/apps and RAID0 128k ~1600GB for non-essential storage. (stuff backed-up elsewhere)

It's been rock solid for over a year this way.

The RAID styles that OPs mobo supports limit him to raid 0,1 or Intel Matrix Raid (which uses partitions on a single or multiple disks as separate units in the raid array.

+1 for this. Regardless of whether you raid or not, either <$100 for an external drive, or $50-75 for a old desktop off Craigslist, $50 for a spinpoint F3 1tb drive, and $free for Linux and samba, and you have a simple physical backup of all your HDD contents in another location.

Calm down and grow up bud.

If I am wrong and you know more then me, then wouldn't the proper thing to do be to point out where I gave inaccurate information, and correct me with an informative post rather then getting your panties in a bunch?

I will now ask you, what did I say that was incorrect. I was posting up pertaining to OPs setup. His raid choices are limited and that is what I stated.

You said I was wrong. I would like clarification on how I was wrong. If you can educate me, then next time I will know better and not make the same mistake. If you only get angry and frustrated then you come off as an impatient jackass who thinks he is better then everyone. What the hell would the point of joining this forum be if I already knew everything there was ever about computers? I am here to try and help others, as well as continue to educate myself and learn about the electronics and gadgets that I love. Your condescending attitude serves no purpose here.

Then you would have to enable the drives you want RAIDed and how you want them setup. You would then need to instal an OS after.
