Set up two Samsung Sm951 in Raid 0 from PCIe slot on ASRock Server Board

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone
this is my first post to this forum so let me begin by saying hello to you all
Hello~!!

I came across an article of using 2nd hand Xeon CPU to put together a dual CPU rig.
Without any piror experience dealing with Raid nor any server grade desktop.
I wonder if it's possible to use two Samsung SM951 which put into some kind of M.2 to PCIe adapter, then put them in the AsRock X9DAI-B-LGA2011-E5-2600 mother board
Will RAID 0 be possible be used with a set up like this? To my understanding, RAID 0 usually requires some sort of hardware which comes with the mother board.
If so, will the adapter I use for converting M.2 to PCIe port cause any changes to the final result?

Again, thank you for spending time on my post and hello to you all:)

edit: should have read more carefully tongue.gif

it seems like you'd need a x8 pcie adapter card with 2x m.2 3x4 slots on it with a raid controller also.

or like you said you'd need the raid controller on the motherboard that will support the nvme drives on two x4 pcie adpaters.

or a motherboard with native m.2 slots.

With a quick glance at that mobo, seems like you could only do software raid 0, but then that wouldn't be bootable...
