I like having Raid 0 drives and keeping them backed up that way I have the speed and security.. Can you give me some information on this or have you tried it?
I've never tried installing the OS on the LSI array and booting from it...but I konw that is an option in the BIOS...so it is possible. I haven't read about anybody having problems setting up the RAID 0 on the LSI ports....just some people that were disappointed in the results. I've got 4 SSD's running in RAID 0 right now. I've done it both with the LSI chip handling the RAID calculations, and also by just setting up the drives as pass through and having Windows handle the RAID stuff. I get similar results both ways....with the exception of the 4k read/writes being a little faster when I use pass-through disks.
I'll do some screenshots of some benchmarks so you can see what kind of results I'm getting, and post them later today.
