Default Adding Raid1 to AHCI system?

i have my system set to AHCI for trim on my intel SSD, is it possible to raid1, i just bought 1TB hdd's and want to mirror them for data but i'm not sure if its possible to raid without changing it to "raid" in the bios? when i change it my boot SSD wont boot. i do not have a raid card, would like to do it without one if possible. my rig is in my system specs. :) tia.

You could always just use a software RAID1 with Computer Management/Disk Management. Otherwise I am not sure it is possible. This is the reason I always set my SATA drives to RAID instead of AHCI.
