I would think not since your motherboard supports RAID, just set your raid options in BIOS, you should be golden. Here's what MSI has to say
- SATA1~6 ports support Intel Rapid Storage Technology enterprise (AHCI / RAID 0/1/5/10) by Intel Z77" found here
Your mobo manual should explain settings required.
