Raid0 SSD on P8P67 board

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all
Ive been planning to put my two 128gb SSD's into a RAID0 configuration for the OS and a couple games but not sure of the best way to go about it with the Asus P8P67 board. This board has Intel and Marvell controllers that apparently cant be configured until the bios is put into RAID mode. If I put it in RAID mode will that also disable the old, current drives that are running the OS ?

Also , would I be better off getting a dedicated RAID card vs using the limited onboard controllers ?

thanks !

i would stick with the onboard controller, unless you have more than 3 a controller isnt worth it.

the boot drives will not work if switched to ACHI or vice versa. as in they wont boot. if you are using them only as data drives, then it doesnt matter at all, you can switch at will.
the only issue is with booting.

Thanks, that confirms what I suspected .. So I'll make the switch as soon as Im ready to reinstall the OS and post some stats
