    Hey guys,

    To finish off my setup I'm going to install RAID via my mSATA SSD, buying another one, and is this what I need to do so?

    (ebay item no. - 121431347857)

    If I buy this and another mSATA can someone please tell me how I go about setting up raid and then a fresh install of Yosemite. Thanks people!

    Hey guys,

    is it a case of buying the parts. loading up disk utility, formatting both drives, then put the two drives into the RAID section, formatting and allowing them to become one drive, then boot up Yosemite and choosing the new drive and then installing onto that like a normal "single" HD?

    Brilliant, thanks dude, will I notice quite an improvement over the one mSATA? I know there is a little risk involved but my data is backed up anyways!

    Hey M,
