It depends. If you are adding another SSD to create a new array with existing data... that can be a headache. You need to backup all data on the first SSD, as creating a new array will format the drives.
If you are building a new array out of brand new drives, it is no headache at all.
Simply adding a new drive to the system is the simplest solution as the OS should recognize the drive just fine, or if not, activating it in Disk Manager is easy to do, and you do not need to reformat your old data.

In my system I have my OS on a 128GB Sammy 830, and then I have a Raid0 array with two WD Blacks, and then another HD just for file storage.
This give me the flexibility to manipulate my array without compromising my OS and any programs I have on my SSD. So if I wanted to remove the array or add to it or change it I would not need to mess around with my OS.

if your'e considering Raid SSD's for real world experience, think again http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-raid-benchmark,3485.html

Very few situations benefit from SSD's in Raid0. Of course all of the benchmarks fit within those odd situations, but outside of that, RAID0 will realistically perform the same as one SSD.

Install everything on a mechanical drive and use a 64gb SSD to act as a cache.

parsec i am dreaming of two SandDisk Extreme II 240GB in RAID 0 with 11.2
I am selling my PROs,now ,today,i want "estos dos extremos, por favor"
By the way my PROs got only 1.7tb ,so PLEEAASSEE lets stop speaking about endurance ,because we change our SSDs before they even warm up.

Sorry for the thread hijack $ilent, if you have any questions, or whatever, please let us know.

Endurance of SSDs is not an issue now, nor has it ever been. Older NAND have even more P/E cycles than newer NAND, and given the endurance of Samsung TLC, wearing out NAND is something we need to forget about.

Ok Igor, have I got some benchmarks for you! How about one 240GB SanDisk Extreme II, on Windows 7, IRST 11.2, and NOT a UEFI booting installation! Just MBR, I promise, Z77 board, and an empty drive:



Next, a 480GB SanDisk Extreme II, on Windows 8.1, IRST 13.0 (beta), UEFI booting, Z87 board, OS drive:



Yes I have both of these now. It seems like the latest version of AS SSD always does the error with the Read access time, I just can't get rid of it. Very similar results between both SSDs. Sorry Igor, I have no RAID 0 tests with these SSDs.

We can see the 4K read speeds are not quite those of the Samsung 840 Pro or EVO. Sequential writes are a little lower than the Samsung SSDs. But as I like to say, AS SSD is not the only benchmark that tells us all we need to know.

Are the Samsung SSDs great SSDs? Of course they are, but there is more to SSD performance than what is shown by AS SSD.
