DIY-Building RAID Inside 400W PC Casing

* Mistake Correction:
At 0:24 i called those metallic things as Hinges, but they are not Hinges; they are called (Metal Wood Brackets).
thanks to Native English speaking guys, always helping and correcting my Broken English :)

Now Configuring RAID on Windows 7:
1.My Computer (Right Click)
3.Disk Management
4.After allocation and format all finished, right click and choose Mirror Disk (RAID1) or
Striped Disk (RAID0), and ok, exit
6.Enjoy your RAID.

Note: for better and fast re-sync,if you have not a strong system, you should not install hard drives more than 500GB each cause it takes long time and much of CPU if once they got out of sync due to a instant shutdown, power-failure or anything like that.
