Which is better in terms of performance first and reliability second, the onboard bios RAID on an Intel 1156 P55 motherboard or using the built in RAID options in Windows 7 Ultimate.
I will be using 2 HDD's in a RAID 0 configuration.
I plan on having at least 3 partitions, 1 bitlocker encrypted system volume, 1 bitlocker encrypted storage volume, and 1 unencrypted volume for silly things like music and videos.
Edit: If I don't care at all about reliability, which way should I go? I've got a Core i7 so CPU overhead isn't so big any issue in the big scheme of things. Also, all data that is not already redundantly stored in 2 other places I don't really care about.
