My last 2 SATA ports use the Promise T3 controller, can I use them without RAID?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My last 2 SATA ports use the Promise T3 controller, can I use them without RAID, you know individually? I can't find anything about the subject.

Mobo is a MSI K9A2 Platinum AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX, and the rest of the specs are under "Server 2.0" in my list of systems

Edit: When I plug in drives to those 2 ports, at the Promise T3 controller screen during the boot it list them and says they are in JBOD 1/0. I can't find an option to turn off raid and they arn't detected by windows even in Disk Management.

as far as i know, every SATA port is, by default, not setup with RAID. which means yes you can, unless you've set the ports to a specific raid array configuration in BIOS.
