Hello people.
You all can see my system specs.

I now have tried to setup Raid 0 but with no luck. When done in bios , it works to some degree , it works all the way to when i try to install W10 and it get stuck on 0%

Also tried with RST in windows 10 with no luck , it just gives me an error. The odd thing is that raid 1 works well without any issues. All drivers and bios updates is up to date.

Are these the drives you're going to be booting off? If so, I'd heavily advise against Raid 0. Raid 0 is really only used when the data is replicatable (not unique) and won't be a PITA to recover if a drive fails. A steam library, for example. Do not use Raid 0 if the data on the drives are of any importance to you (documents, pictures, etc.)

What difference is Raid 0 going to do for a 3.0x4 NVMe drive anyhow? I don't see the point with this unless your workload is heavily sequential. For general use it's pointless. 3GB/s read is already plenty fast.

Are you sure the Windows 10 install is stuck at 0%, how long did you leave it?

All my important data is stored away , im only using my pc for gaming and watching yotube.

No data here is important , it can be downloaded again fast. it was stuck at 0% for almost 10 min, where the other options just completed the "copying files" in matter of seconds

Seems to me there's something iffy with the software RAID implementation in your BIOS. I don't know.

Very few things are more futile than 2 SSDs in RAID0.

Funny my 2 850 EVO do 1000 read/writes. But I made this array back when 500GB was a “big drive”

imagine caring about sequentials
There are people who need that, but most of the time it's not worth the automatic doubling of the failure rate. And it does nothing for small random reads, unfortunately.

Never used RAID 0 for that specific reason. If the need ever arises(and I would expect it to happen when dealing with Windows) that I need to do a hard reboot, things could easily get screwed up. If anything, he should be using RAID 10 provided he has a need for it; otherwise, I wouldn't bother because it can be too much of a ball ache.
