Why are you doing this? You can get much faster drives than this raid array, and these are old gen drives.

 

Do you want this array bootable? Id just use storage spaces and have a seprate boot drive(get a optane if you want the fastest drives)

Raid 0, while fastest, is dumbest. One drive fails and you lose everything. 

 

You said you have 4 drives, you should just run Raid 5 which offers superior read speeds, average write speeds. If you want even superior read speeds AND write speeds comparable to a single drive, you should do Raid 1+0. Raid 0 by itself is dumb.

raid 0 really isn't that bad of a idea. SSD failure is pretty rare, and with backups the chance of data loss is very low, and from the looks of the system uptime isn't the most import.

Do you want this raid bootable? Id personally have a seprate boot drive(how about a optane drive, much faster than the 960's, then use the 960's for games and other files

Do you have a os installed? You gonna want to do a reinstall with the new raid, and that will wipe all drivers.
