Using RAID On Z68 Motherboard: Asus Z68 Extreme4 Gen3

I recently got a new desktop computer that has a Asus Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 motherboard in it and wanted to configure RAID 0 on a couple terabyte hard drives to provide better performance and more space to my primary volume. Initially I didn’t see how to configure the RAID as I am used to an external hardware RAID card that has its own BIOS. After a little bit of poking I was able to locate the setting to enable RAID and then configuring it was fairly standard. Below I describe the setting to enable RAID on the Z69 Extreme4 Gen3 mobo and how to configure a new RAID 0 volume once RAID is enabled.
