    RAID 0 Issue on Fresh Build

    ^ Exactly what I did, word for word. ^ Never did figure out why RAID wouldn't work. Frankly, I've given up on it (too excited to get my pair of 980s fired up ) I'm now running one SSD as an OS/general-use drive and the other as a Steam drive for all my game installs. At least I've significantly lowered the risk of catastrophic data loss by abandoning RAID 0. Silver lining. Thanks for the effort watts300.

    Still no pre-orders available in Canada. Take my money, already!

    RAID 0 Issue on Fresh Build

    Alright, I just through together a fresh build running the ASUS Maximus VII Formula and two Corsair Force GS 240GB SSDs. I would like to configure both SSDs to run in a RAID 0 array. This will be my first-ever RAID setup. However, I have followed ASUS' instructions and the instructions found on a dozen forums, but I have a problem nonetheless. FYI: BIOS is up to date. EZ Flash Update was the first thing I did after booting for the first time. I haven't touched a single BIOS setting, save for those described in the following steps. Here's what I have done... Switch from AHCI to RAID in the BIOS (save and restart) Press Ctrl + I to open the RAID controller Create the RAID 0 array, name it, choose disks, choose stripe size, etc. (exit and restart) Open the BIOS and check to see if everything is good; BIOS sees the RAID 0 array, both drives are good (save and restart) Plug in the flash drive that has my Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit install files on it Windows install goes through successfully, choosing Disk 0 as my install drive, which shows ~480GB (restart) [issue] RAID controller pops up during boot saying the RAID has failed and only recognizes one of the drives [issue] Check BIOS and it too only shows one drive as active; shows the other SATA port as "Empty" I have to kill the RAID array, wipe the drives, and unplug and plug-in the SATA cables for BIOS to see both of them again. I have repeated these steps twice now, having swapped-out the SATA cables and having switched the drives to different Intel SATA ports on the motherboard. Same results. Just so I could get Windows going, I installed without the SSDs in a RAID array. Install went fine and I now have a machine with two separate drives usable by the OS. But this isn't the setup I want. I want RAID 0. Am I just missing something simple, or is this a hardware/firmware issue? Thanks for reading and please help if you can.
