Yes Raid-0 is combining two drives together to work as one
Raid-1 is two drives that copy each-other so if one drive fails you just stick another one in and the other will copy all of its data onto it and you are always backed up.
The other raids do the same stuff but just with more drives
But i have been successful with Raid off of mobo's so far. My older Haswell build has 6 crucial M4 120GB in Raid0, I bought them piecemeal and added them in two at a time over a couple year period. My current build has 3 samsung EVO 500GB in Raid0. Neither computer has given me many issues with Raid0. The new build has had zero issues, the haswell build has like three times broken raid and given me error screens on boot, I have always been able to fix it, sometimes just removing a couple drives for a boot then putting them back in their spots seems to make everything work again.
I vote go for it and enjoy! Edited by chronicfx - 7/11/16 at 2:30pm
