Changing ports with RAID

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So here is my situation. I have a RAID 1+0 setup with 4 HDs. I have 2 sata 6GB/s ports on my motherboard, that at the time when I setup my RAID 1+0, I didn't feel like using. If I where to switch 2 of my drives from the standard 3.0 slots to the 6.0 slots, then:

1.) Would I loose all my data
a.) If yes, is there a way to fix that?
2.) Would I get any actual advantage from doing this? It says up to a 4x speed increase with raid 0, but what about with raid 1+0?

You won't be able to run an array with half the drives on the 3Gb/s ports and half on the 6Gb/s ports. And even if you could you wouldn't see any benefit at all speed-wise, so there is no point at all changing your current setup. The controller you are currently using with actually be faster than the 6Gb/s one anyway as it's about the best around for non-parity RAID with low disk numbers.
