Can someone evaluate this?

post #1 of 7

I wanted to put this card in my sig rig, to attach that enclosure, with those HDD's. Will there be any issues? I won't have to reinstall windows, right?

I'm fairly certain that you can't boot from a PCI raid on this motherboard. Or at least I have seen a few threads complaining about the motherboard not supporting it.

That raises the question, though, my raptors are in RAID already on the mobo. Do I still need to reinstall for the second RAID? I can have two RAID's yes?

yes, two raids. if your drives are on your mobo to boot from, you will not need to reinstall. when you receive the card
1.) connect to enclosure and the mobo, insert drives in enclosure
2.) install drivers for raid card
3.) install the management software for the raid card.
4.) configure your new raid array
5.) initialize new volume in the disk management tool in winders.

and your good to go.
yes you can have two raids, the one on your mobo will not need to be modified.
