Hello KillerSystems,

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.

Hello,

 

 

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.

 

 

Regards,
