Intel recommends 128K for RAID0

HOWEVER I would strongly suggest you re-think going RAID0 for your system. The risk of one disc going down, or your RAID failing and you loosing everything is way to high. The difference in speed compared to a proper RAID like RAID1, or simply leaving both drivers on AHCI is so small in the real world that the risk is way to big when compared to benefit. But hey I am grey of beard. :)

I feel the same, but since people really want numbers, I stopped giving advice against SSD RAID 0.
