XPS 8500, max HDD, Raid 1

What is the max amount of HDD (Hard Disk Drive) space the XPS 8500 can handle? 

I want to set up one drive as my OS and two other drives as RAID 1. For this RAID 1, I would like to max out at 8TB. I am running Windows 10.

Do you know if the hardware can set up with those 2 drives as a RAID1, if neither is the boot drive in this PC model?

You'll need to know that before worrying about the HDD sizes...

I have 3 drives in there. 1- boot drive with Windows. 1-4tb 1-4tb. I now taken the 4 tb drives out and will not continue with this set up. Thank you for your reply. BTW the computer could recognize the 4tb drives. In case anyone was wondering.
