New to RAID setups. Would this be per drive or over the entire array? I'm speaking in regards to a RAID-0 setup. If that's over the entire array, I'm not impressed :/

I'd be using it to capture uncompressed 1080p video. Would this board be up to that? I don't see the processor having problems, since it's not encoding, but some input from those knowing more than I would be appreciated.

The setup Shoikan was describing is using a port multiplier, so several drives are sharing a single sata link to the motherboard, which will increase capacity at the cost of speed.

If you are talking about truly uncompressed hd video in real time at 200+ MB/s, you probably want to use a raid-0 with a couple drives hooked to separate sata ports (and you'd fill up a pair of 1-terabyte drives with a few hours worth of video)

Copying with dd from /dev/zero to a test file I get 205MB/s onto a SSD with no raid, so theoretically you may be able to do what you speak of using raid-0 even with this board, however especially depending on the source/input connection you would probably be better with something with more processing power. Especially assuming you'd at some point want to compress that video.

However I am using a silicon dust tuner and can capture capture two 1080i HDTV streams simultaneously using the C60 with no problem. The streams are actually broadcast with MPEG2 compression, and run about 2-4GB/hr. Have no problem with the capture, could probably run 2 more if I had another tuner, but i do boot up the big computer once a week or so to compress those captures to x264 to reduce the size.

Thanks. Would definitely being using RAID0 for the capture. It would just be for capturing. Footage would be edited / compressed on another system.

my DIY nas is :
Asus c60m1-I
8 gb 1333 ram (kingston)
8 gb ssd ( transend)
2X WD 2TB EARX
1X 1TB WD
1X 500 GB WD
300W SILENT psu
coolmaster small case


I am running openmediavault 0.4 ( debian nas distro) And i am loving it. ( first time linux user)
Got it to work as an sabnzbd+,sickbeard , couchpatato server.. and i am running an plexmediaserver on it.

When i got it i started with freenas but there was no support for onboard lan card ( not really good for a nas)

I Am running this setup for about an half year. And i am thinking of expending..

I am kind of a noob so could use some expert advise..
Does this board support a port multiplier?
if it does i was thinking of getting one of those and adding 5x 3tb in raid 5.
i could only find sata 300 port multipliers does this really matter in this kind of setup?

thank you kind regards mathijs strik

i found an anser: since the c60m uses the a50m sata chip controller. if i have to believe this website its possible.

unless I am missing something the North Bridge chipset is AMD Hudson M1 and I believe that only supports 6 Sata 6 ports and this board has 6 ports so a port multiplyer here would be useless.

A50M Hudson-M1[N 1] "Brazos" ×4 Gen 1[M 1] 6 × 6 Gbit/s AHCI 1.2

PM works fine in freenas and nas4free. I currently have my board with 8 drives 4 Ports > 4 Drives. The last 2 i converted to esata and used a esata enclosure for 80 bucks and still have more room for expansion. Running 8 2tb in Nas4Free in a software Raid5 for testing its been up for weeks with no problem and reads S.M.A.R.T. no problem.
