Why would you need a RAID 0 of SATA TLC SSD's when a 960 Pro would be faster anyway?

 For streaming reads/writes, the difference isn't huge.  I mirror the concern that this build seems a bit...odd, though.

Software RAID, for striped or mirrored sets, is actually faster than most RAID cards. If you want dedicated SATA bandwidth a basic card like the LSI 9211 can do RAID 0. They're cheap these days: https://www.amazon.c...w/d/B002RL8I7M/. These cards are good for 2.X GB/s.

Breakout SATA cables for them are cheap too.

That RAID card is a waste, IMO. You won't be running parity RAID anyway, so get a cheap one or run software RAID. Streaming IO won't care either way.

Sounds more like a background driver or system update. Power issues almost always cause crashes or reboots.
