Default RAID 0 or non-RAID for sample libraries?

Hi all,

I have 3 1TB SSDs inside my AKITIO Quad mini enclosure connected to my new iMac Pro via Thunderbolt 3. They will be used purely for sample libraries.

Should I keep them working separately splitting the heavier libraries on separate SSDs OR create a RAID 0 and put all of them in "one big 3TB SSD"?

Some people say it's better to go RAID 0 (Even the EW website recommend it) but some says no (as we are dealing with sound libraries thus lots of very small files). Please help!
