SSD + 2x 750 GB Raid 0 installation on new MOBO Tags: NAS / RAID SSD Storage Last response: March 19, 2012 5:39 PM in Storage Share Stalzy March 17, 2012 5:17:07 PM Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 I own a 128 Crucial M4 SSD and 2x 750 WD Cavier Black 6 Gb/s and a DVD-RW drive. I'm wondering what is optimal installation for this config is. SSD is used for OS and a few APPS. While the Raid 0 is going to be used for FRAP's video capture and small storage.
