Also, is the MSI Controller fast enough to handle 3 or 4 times RAID speed? If not, what would be a reliable RAID controller for my mb? Would that also be fitting for X99 mb?
You mentioned using an Intel X99 Chipset. Here is a hyperlink to an user of an ASUS X99-A motherboard using two RAIDs on the Intel X99 Chipset: ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Forum- Help needed. ASUS motherboards with the Intel X99 Chipset have M.2 form slots for fast storage and ten SATA ports for your RAIDs and storage or cache drives. And, with the consumer PCIe SSDs coming with the NVMe protocol, editing should get even quicker on the better-configured Intel X99 Chipset motherboards (see this Adobe forum thread at: Fastest single (sort of affordable) storage drive (sort of available) Samsung SM951 tested). For well-configured systems, your money spent wisely equals your time saved. For poorly configured systems, your time wasted equals your money spent unwisely. So, the Tweakers Page is a great place to start learning the hardware basics for better and smoother editing. And, there are companies, like editing hardware configurers, that will help you to use your money more wisely for better and smoother editing. ADK Editing is one hardware configurer here on the forums that contributes regularly with good advice.
Thank you for your reply.
Going for X99 mb that is definitely the way to go. But how well does z97 handle RAID 0? Shall I add a pci controller?
I have not yet planed to upgrade to x99 though. So how do I set up a good RAID only for media leaving OS disc untouched?
