This was a very wise move on your part.
RAID-0 configuration computers never end well. The usually crash on an orgy of computer problems.
And then you're stuck with lots of lost data, and lots of lost time rebuilding your computer.
Most people who use this non-redundant "RAID" configuration don't even need it.
It's not stable, it's not safe for your data, it's abusive to the hard drives, and it doesn't really give a speed boost.
