    @Ch3vr0n So what you are saying is: to have the both m.2 separated (e.g. Disk C: and disk D I need to do a raid array manually?

    What I want is to have 2Tb instead of only one partition C: with both SSD's

    no that's the opposite of what i'm saying. If you want 2 seperate discs, you don't need to do anything in the bios. Just format the drive in disk management. If you want both to appear as a single drive, you need to manually configure a raid through the bios. That said, there's no point in doing so if you're just going for the speed. Even though you'll get faster read and write speeds on the drive itself, the PCI-E bus interface will be a bottleneck.

    1 single drive can "consume" the maximum speed possible in pci-e gen 3.

    Yea you are right I just needed to go to the storage manager and format the new SSD now it appears!

    @Ch3vr0n can you explain to me the last part?

    Speed or space?

    I did not get this part :S can you explain me in which case this will happen? In RAID? or the way I'm going?

    And one last question which is the best scenario for better performance overall? Doing a RAID? or having it separated?
