Question Can you put 2 SSD and 1 HDD in raid 0?

Sounds like a dumb question, and i'm guessing you can't. But I might as well ask.

You can but why you'd want to do it is a different question.

Unless it's purely for benchmarking.

EDIT: I just re-read the title - 2 SSD and 1 HDD in raid 0?

Yes, you can. However... if you had 3 different size disks, the overall size of the raid array would be 3*(size of smallest disk).

Also, you would get better performance from just the two SSD's in Raid without adding the mechanical HD.

Okay. Thanks. I was just wondering.

and unfortunately putting SSD's into RAID 0 isn't possible right now anyway. Read Maximum PC's latest Dream Machine issue for the reason why.

One SSD is plenty fast right now, as long as you don't buy a mainstream or budget SSD drive.
