    Unable to use all 3 M.2's for RAID 0

    Hello Everyone.
    I'm new to the forum and this is my 1st post.
    I have an ASRock x299 Taichi with an i7-7820x and 1 GTX 1080 ti video card using 1 PCIe slot.
    I have no other cards, so 3 of the 4 PCIe slots are free.
    I've populated all 3 M.2 slots with Samsung 960 Pro 512GB drives.
    So, I have 3 M.2 drives, but am only able use 2 of them to create a RAID 0.
    Is it because my CPU doesn't have enough PCIe lanes that I can't use the 3rd M.2 in a RAID set?
    I just want to confirm if I SHOULD be able to use all 3 M.2's in RAID or if I must settle on using only 2.
    Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums.

    I think you need to look up raid definitions.

    Raid 0 is only ever 2 drives.

    What are you trying to accomplish?
