You should be able to set up the 2 seagate drives in raid 0 and then load the OS onto one of the ssd's. Just follow the instructions in your mobo manual to set up raid 0. You might be able to set up the seagate drives in raid 0 after your OS is installed on a SSD. All information will be wiped on the seagate drives when you set up raid 0 on them.

I assume that you want the SSD {OS + 'some Apps'} + RAID 1 {Data}/mirrored ; RAID 0 would be crazy for important Data!

Good luck with that {SSD + RAID} - http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/276715-30-x58a-ud3r-r...

Ideal Ports - http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/278015-30-mobo-ideal-...

I would recommend that you update your BIOS, although BIOS FB hasn't seemed to fix the RAID issues with the UD3R.

Setting up the RAID is relatively easy:
1. Install the SSD & HDD as {Ideal Ports}
2. BIOS
a. ICH SATA Control Mode {RAID(XHD)}
b. SATA Port0-3 Native Mode {Enabled}
c. HPET Mode {64-bit}
d. Save & Exit
2. Set up RAID {Ctrl-I}
refer Chapter 6 pages 85-89

My RAID on the MOBO ran okay for a few days and degraded the system until it became unstable, so don't be too surprised if it runs initially.

Good Luck!
