My System Specs

Default Can my mobo/cpu handle two RAID 1 volumes?

Hi guys,

My new build currently already has a RAID 1 volume (2 x WD Red 4TB). I'm thinking of adding a second volume consisting of two WD Red 3TBs. Is this possible? (i.e. it will not slow down my processing speed, load times, etc.)

Also, with the drive cage already having a SSD, a 2TB WD Black gaming drive, and the existing WD Reds, the temperatures are sitting at 23-25 degrees C. If I were to add two additional drives, it'd mean completely filling out the cage. Bad idea?
