can i use the intel m.2 750 1.2 tb pcie ssd and the m.2 model # SSDPE2MW012T4M2 in raid 0 on the rampage 5 extreme 10 with the 6950X or do i have to get both of the ones that look like ssds
We understand you would like to know if it is possible to do RAID 0 with the Intel® SSD 750 Series in the Asus* Rampage V Edition 10.
First, we would like to let you know that the use of an M.2 slot for NVMe* SSD's depends on the Computer Manufacturer. The 750's are PCIe* NVMe* drives and they are available in two different form factors:
- 2.5 inch: that normally is connected to the PC using a U.2 compatible connector (some motherboards may use a M.2 to U.2 adapter).
- Add-in-card, Half-height, half length. It uses a Single slot x4 connector.
In regards to RAID, to our knowledge the Intel® X99 chipset does not perform RAID with NVMe* drives, since the drives are mapped to the CPU. You might want to confirm with http://www.asus.com/us/support/ Asus* Support about this, since this configuration may vary between motherboards.
To do RAID with NVMe* SSD's, you need the drives to be mapped to the chipset, or to a storage controller that supports this feature.
For example, motherboards with Intel® Z710 Chipset or newer may have specific U.2 connectors, or PCIe* Slots mapped to the chipset, which allows RAID using Intel® Rapid Storage Technology.
Using the two form factors of the Intel® SSD 750 Series is a valid configuration.
As mentioned before, there is a possible limitation regarding RAID support. To our knowledge, motherboards based on the Intel® X99 chipset, such as the Asus* ROG Rampage V Edition 10, are not capable of performing RAID with NVME* drives, therefore, we advise you to confirm with http://www.asus.com/us/support/ Asus Support if your motherboad supports what you are trying to achieve.
If the storage controller cannot do RAID with NVME* SSD's, you can always perform software RAID with the OS, however, this is not possible with bootable drives.
