I have experience with most makes and models of RAID chips. Make sure you have the correct RAID driver copied off your Mobo driver disk, short of that download the RAID drivers from Asus and copy them off to both Thumb Drive and Cd Burner disk. Inevitably if you put it on disk it'll want thumb drive and vice versa. It's a good idea to have a static disk with raid drivers on it anyway.
Mark your burner disk, and if you got it Mobo driver disk put them into a paper sleeve and tape it behind the motherboard on the side where it won't show. I deal with lost driver disks every day it's not a lot of fun. Chances are the drivers are outdated but loosing the disk reduces resale value. They will do in a pinch.
After configuring RAID 0 i highly recommend some form of backup like acronis or blackarmor. RAID 0 fails a lot more than static single drive configurations (2x as often).
Typically on built in RAID chips it's software RAID and not as effective as hardware RAID but hardware raid they want your firstborn child and little finger in payment.
If you ned immediate assistance shoot me a line on FB at Mark.Barrett.1044 and likely it'll be faster than on the forum.
