I'd be a bit uneasy using two different drives... I just feel like they would be working independantly and something would get screwed up... no basis for my feeling that I have heard of but just not something I would do. m 0 l Related resources SSD Raid 0 dual 512 gig drives... is this hard to set up? - Forum How to Set Up 2 SSDs in RAID 0 when Windows 8 is Already Installed - Forum cant set up a raid 0 - Forum How do you set up 2 ssd's in raid 0 on a msi 970a-g43 - Forum Can I set up RAID 0 with two HDD and one SSD as boot drive? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Back up the stuff you cannot afford to lose but I have not lost anything in many years of playing with this. Not one rebuild ever. Raid controllers do only use the smallest sized drive but they write at the speed of each drive. If using a few smaller or older drives put 3 or 4 into a RAID 0 array and go have fun.
