N54L hard or software RAID?

Got myself a N54L with onboard RAID options. Selected RAID 1 in BIOS and drives are initialized. Creating volumes in DSM however does allow to select drives individually? Would expect to see one RAID-drive?

 

What is best practice, use DSM to create soft-RAID or do use hardware-RAID of N54L?

 

Thanks for any advice!

Afaik AHCI seems to be the preferred bios setting for the controller, most of the heavy lifting is handled by the DSM itself.

 

Has your N54L been flashed with the hacked bios? Not that it's essential but it does unlock some useful features in the bios. :cool:
