    Can I do this on two self-installed NVME SSDs in RAID0?

    Probably the most hyper-binned, selective CPU and paste job of all time - but Metro Exodus with raytracing ON with 9900k staying in mid-70s C 95% of the time with a couple spikes to 80c.

    Pretty dang impressive.

    Yes, just place the RAID Driver on the USB Stick after its created so you can load it when the drive partitions appear asking you which SSD to install to or to create partition, hit LOAD Driver then navigate to the USB Stick/the RAID Driver folder hit next, you will get 2 driver options, select the first one and wait till its loaded then proceed to install or create a partition, I like putting Windows on a 200-300 GB partition and leaving the rest for a D: partition after I've installed Windows

    RAID Driver 16.8.0.1000

    Ugh the HDD is complete trash. My 750GB Blacks from my M18x are probably much faster.

    Constant 100% usage in task manager. I'll be ordering my SSD soon once I decide I'll be keeping it...

    I made the specs up until I received the laptop. I'll fix it in a bit

    I'll be doing a FS and TS run a bit later to show off the RTX Titan in DGFF format :p

    Make sure to disable Superfetch and Windows Search ASAP.

    Wow, that interview of the new MSI CEO. No wonder the new GT75 is BGA instead of LGA. I guess we are lucky that Alienware is taking a leap with the Area51m.

    Make sure you disable Windows Defender as it keeps scanning files over and over upon every access. It's so dumb it has no whitelisting feature to skip files that have previously been scanned when they didn't even change.
