Im planning on buying a HP dl380 g6, but I'm new to the raid thing. Could I do a raid0 with 7X146gb, and use all the 7 drives.

The raid controller is a p410i.


Sure as long as the data on the RAID volume doesn’t matter. A 7 disk RAID 0 should be configurable on that RAID controller.

If you’re unsure about RAID and the appropriate RAID level for your use, make sure you read this: What are the different widely used RAID levels and when should I consider them?

I believe the p410i supports 0, 1, 10, 5, and 6 But it’s been a while, so I may be wrong there.
