The only real question I have is why do you buy parts from CyberPower? If you are a system builder wouldn't it be a lot cheaper to get an actual distributor rather than purchase from a custom PC business?

Edit: Also, why didn't you just order all the parts from CyberPowerPC as they are all available. In fact I can go on their configurator and make a system identical to this one if I want. The only things different would be the blue-led fans, but they have neon fans option. I'm not saying you bought it pre-built and are claiming to have built it, but if you do buy some of your parts there, why not all of them?

On second thought, I didn't even realize CyberPower sold parts, and thought they were strictly a system builder themselves... surely you'd benefit from your own distributor...

Could always do RAID 0+1, or 1+0, either way it is the same way, that way you have redundancy and speed.

i did...

RAID 5 if you have that many drives. MUCH SAFER than any other type.
RAID 0 if you dont mind losing everything you have.

raid 10 is as safe and a bit faster than raid5 but more expensive. stripped with parity. both can loose 1 drive. raid6 can loose 2 drives.

Apparently RAID 1 is the safest single level RAID since there is a specification for a multi-mirror 3 disk RAID 1. RAID 6 is second and then it's normal two disk RAID 1. RAID 5 is probably next simply because the drive wear should be more even by comparison to RAID 3 and RAID 4. RAID 0 is the least safe.
If we are talking about multi level RAIDs it could take forever and since the only two I see avaliable regularly are 50 and 10 I'll just say that RAID 10 is safer than RAID 50.
This all assumes they are configred with the minimum number of disks which is when each is at it's safest, (probably does not apply to RAID 10 and RAID 50, but the maths is beyond me) it is not nessessarily how they would be configured in the real world.
