I'm not able to use RaidXpert2 to fakeraid0 more than 2 drives. I've messed with this for more than a few hours. All of my SSD's I'm trying to RAID are crucial MX500's. I'm trying to RAID0 4 of them. Here's some of the steps I've taken.

 

-Followed the steps for RAID verbatim in the instructions manual.

-Updated to the newest version of the BIOS.

-Moved the drive's SATA cable from one SATA port to another. I noticed there maybe up to 4(?) raid controllers so maybe some ports fall under different controllers.

-Made sure the disk were as clean as I could get them. Some were in a fakeRAID before in case there's some kind of conflict.

 

I'm aware that storage spaces exist but I don't really want to use it for this. I want a massive bootable raid0. Like I had on the intel board before I switched over. I'm starting to except this as perhaps just a limitation of this particular chipset which would not be great.
