Does he use it for storage or OS? And with 20 drives in RAID 0 he should have at least considered RAID 5 for a bit of redundancy. Obviously he takes the risk, but what if one drive does fail on him? Data will be lost no matter what and the array will be broken. Nobody ever needs the speed of 20 drives in RAID 0. It's obviously for e-peen and nothing else. Benchmarking only.
