Ide Raid1

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
i have both of my HDD's setup on one IDE cable and the system recognizes them. I go into my computer and it shows them both there. Can someone tell me hw to set them up so the system views them as one hdd "combine memory" **remember IDE not SATA**

What you're wanting is called Raid0, not Raid1. Anways, you have to hook them up to the IDE Raid controller ports. If you can post a pic of your motherboard or a link to the manufacturer, I'll show you how to hook it up.

It seems to me that the southbridge does NOT include a PATA raid controller. I checked here: http://www.via.com.tw/en/products/ch...ivestation.jsp

The whole RAID discussion is about SATA, and at the bottom of the page it is merely remarked that PATA is supported, without any comment on RAID. PATA raid is not that often supperted as SATA raid is.

I am sure your mobo may be a good one for being stable and all, MSI is an okay brand, but OCing may be a problem cuz of the VIA although I am not sure if it works like it does on the AMD boardsd with it not having the AGP/PCI lockable

I'd say 6/10

Probably a nice board for normal everyday use, but not suitable for serious overclocking. I read the manual (ugh.. pretty bad), and the BIOS screenshot shows that CPU/AGP/PCI frequency can only be changed together. This is not good for overclocking, since you want to increase the FSB for the CPU seperately, and leave the AGP/PCI bus locked at the default speeds.

A better board, if you don't want to upgrade CPU/RAM/Video Card, is the DFI LANPARTY 875P-T Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 875P ATX Intel Motherboard. Newegg has a refurb for $70. (new is $155, and not available right now). This board boast very detailed OC options.

Also the DFI board does not support PATA Raid, only SATA raid.

Exactly correct. AGP/PCI are not lockable.
