    Quick question: Asus Max. VIII hero and storage options

    Hi everyone, I have a question that the manual hasn't been very helpful in answering.
    Say I have an ssd or an M.2 with the OS. I want more storage (games mostly) so I'm thinking one of two things,
    A) two Sata drives in raid 0.
    B) one Sata drive and a small ssd for added cache and speed (already have a 60 gb ssd lying around)

    I haven't been able to understand if I can have two drives in raid 0 while my OS is a separate device, or if I can go the ssd cache way.
    If anyone is able to share a bit of his/her own time in explaining this to me I'd be extremely grateful.

    Thank you kindly and wish you all a great Sunday!

    Well found something, windows 10 still has "storage spaces" which is microsoft jargon for software raid stuff.
    Apparently no resilience is "RAID 0" so... Well, I guess I found a way to have a AHCI SSD with two old sata 2 HDDs in raid 0. Hurray!
