The drives have to be the same specification or they will run at the speed of the slowest drive. A SSD would only run at the speed of the WD Black's. darkeizer September 23, 2012 7:46:19 PM so just run the ssd as the boot drive and let the 2 wd black raid array as storage Can't find your answer ?

Get the answer snorri788 September 23, 2012 8:11:33 PM raid 0 is not worth it. raid 0 gives a slight speed advantage but if you lose a drive you are scuppered. if you have the extra cash get an additional drive and do raid 5 - it's a lot more robust Can't find your answer ?
