Running 4 m.2 ssds in raid 10.

I'm might be building an extreme tower. I was wondering if it's brutal overkill to run 4x Samsung 960 EVO 1TB in Raid 10. Then I get both the performance and the redundancy of both.

 

Cheers

you need a thread ripper motherboard as those support that feature, and its also bootable, threadripper out of the box supports 3 on most boards as that is the amount of m.2 slots they come with, if you buy riser cards (simple pcie to m.2 ) cards you can setup the pcie slot in the bios to separate the slot in 4/4/4/4 lanes and then you can have as many as you want

The issue was m.2 support not RAID support.

then you wont be able to boot from it, as intel only supports raid for m.2 with their own ssds, that are much slower than the samsung ones

i would not count on it, they still allow you to do the raid over the chipset but that is limited to 4Gb/s and a single drive almost reaches that speed

Well, there goes my plan right down the drain...
