Let's say i have a samsung 840 evo ssd in my build as a boot drive. Using the Samsung Magician Software i set it to rapid mode and get speed gains. Now, what if i decided to add in another samsung evo and set both ssd's up to raid0. Would that mean that i would keep the speed gains from rapid mode and get the speed gains that come out of a a raid0 connection on top of it?

Rapid mode will not work in raid0.

I don't mean to be a troll, but, even you could do it, why? >1GB/s not fast enough for you?

In addition to not working with drives in RAID, RAPID also only works on one drive.
So if you have 2 EVOs set up as C drive & D Drive, you can only enable RAPID mode on C drive or D drive, not both.

So basically, what would be preferable two ssd's in raid0 or one ssd in rapid-mode?

One in RAPID mode would be best.

I dont think that is true. It depends what you are using the raid 0 drive for. I am raiding two samsung evo ssd's because I will be doing video editing that will benefit from that more than the rapid mode. Maybe I am wrong though.
