Hi, I am new to RAID but would like to build a RAID 0 array into my new computer. My question is this, do I need to set both drives as master, or do I have a master and slave??

Thanks in advance!!

Think you need a RAID controller, so the problem does not arise, but I am not an authority in these setups.

Going to be using Asus P5W DH Deluxe motherboard with onboard RAID controller.

The RAID diagnostic utility refers to both HDs in my RAID1 as masters. But the array was set up by the computer suppliers, so I can't guarantee that this refers to actual jumper settings on the disks. Because the HDs in RAID arrays generally are intended to be more or less interchangeable, I had assumed that, as Hertz suggests, the jumper settings are irrelevant.

By the way, are you aware of the effects of hard disk failure on a RAID0 array? All other RAID configurations have built-in redundancy to ensure that the system continues to operate if one of the HDs packs up.
