As i am planning on adding a second HDD in my ODD bay, and basically because they are the same model (HGST 7K1000), i want to setup RAID 0 for them. Can anyone point me out to the steps of setting it up? Ideally i would do a fresh install of Windows 10 on my SSD and maybe then i can setup RAID 0 between the HDD's?

I searched for some guides on the internet but I'd rather have someone who has this setup explain what he did?

Go to Control Panel -> Disk Management,
Then press Action -> All Tasks -> New Striped Volume.

well actually if you are setting up a third drive you might want to consider parity instead of striping. If I remember right this should increase your performance of your HDDs while still supplying data security through the parity (But not as much of a boost as striping).

You can set up the Raid pre-install of windows 10, or post-install... if you do a pre-install, you need to turn on the raid settings in bios.

make sure you set up your partitions correctly on the SSD, if you plan to do a complete wipe, and then point the correct images for recovery and repair.

else your g751 will have a sad.
