You need more than 1 drive for RAID. What are you trying to achieve?

Oops silly me I have done so much research into building my computer and now I realize I know nothing about setting up RAID should of done more research doh.

I assumed from reading my mobo manual that all you do is select RAID and it runs faster than normal AHCI mode ooopssss what a fool lol

Any way thanks for setting me straight

No but performance will be quite a lot better if they are the same make, model and size.
