Add a 2nd M.2 SSD and setup in RAID0

I bought a ASUS ROG G752VS OC Edition laptop with a 256 M.2 SSD. I want to put a 2nd identical SSD in the open M.2 bay and have them both be seen by the system as one SSD. Any help or guide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  1. in general, it's a bad idea to raid SSDs.
    Also, raids fail randomly, causing you to lose your data on both drives.
    Also, does your laptop even support raiding hard drives?

    Not sure. They also have a 512 SSD version so I just assumed they had two of the 256's in RAID0.

    I know. It says:
    "Up to two NVMe M.2 PCIe 3.0 x4 SSDs can be installed in RAID0 (both SSDs need to be identical) configuration for extreme speed - it is highly recommended to install your OS on this partition for best performance."

    It doesn't say how though. That's what I'm trying to learn. Thanks

    maybe try contacting asus and having them walk you through it.

    Device Manager can tell you the model of your storage drives, than you can google up how much one of the same model costs. (probably around $120-160)
