Kgold1, Intel® VROC does support third party SSDs, the limitation is related to the Intel(R) X299 chipset on the motherboard mentioned. If you were using a different board with a different chipset the usage of third party SSDs would be available, there is a list of tested SSDs on that type of solution. This is the list, note this is not for your system but other boards that also support Intel(R) VROC: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000030310/memory-and-storage/ssd-software.h... Yes, you will be able to use the Intel(R) SSDs as boot drives with the setup mentioned, and the RAID levels supported would be 0/1/5/10 to boot from. (Windows 10* is the OS supported) Regards, Esteban C Intel Customer Support Technician Under Contract to Intel Corporation

Hello Kgold1, Thank you for contacting the Intel Communities. Since the system has an Intel(R) x299 chipset the answer would be the following: No. Intel VROC on X299 platforms supports Intel® SSDs only. You may reference to this article about Intel® VROC and the x299 chipset: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000026106/memory-and-storage/ssd-software.h...

Thank you for response. That really disappointing that Intel have so limited compatibility. Will Intel drives will be bootable on setup i mention before? will vroc standard key will work on intel drives to create bootable RAID-0?
