You want to use INTEL SATA6G for RAID NOT Marvell.

Thanks to all for your input. Just wanted to let you know that this SYSTEM is UP and Running w/ WEI of 7.8 Whatever that means LOL? Haven't loaded anything but Win7 yet. Also have it hooked up to a 27" HP2711x Monitor that he bought. I am jealous and now will have to get some more Monitor real estate for my self this year.

This is an edited version of thread at OCZ SSD Forum, and these are the steps that I followed.:
http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/showthread.php?83759-SSD-stand-alone-and-Raid-0-questions-for-Asus-P8P67-Pro

As I understand your reply the ssd will perform well and have trim support with bios set to Raid (non-member drive). As long as drivers are the latest intel rst.
From reading the MB manual there are 2 Sata controllers. The intel P67 w/ 6 ports, 4 Sata2 ports and 2 Sata3 ports, and then the Marvell w/ 2 Sata3 ports. So I am not sure I follow why not to set the Raid 0 array on the intel Sata3 ports though. As I understand it this would be faster work on editing the videos, right? The WD 640's are Sata3 Hdd's and this seems the ultimate place and way to me. I could definitely put the 1tb or larger backup/storage(maybe even Raid1 after my wallet recovers) on the Marvell Sata3 controller and then the burners on the intel controller Sata2 ports. If you have time, could you explain your logic a little more, or tell me where my logic is off.
"The sata II drivers are much more mature and since the hdds will not even come close to maxing out the spec i would use that controller."

So step by step for this non techy would look like this:
Install ssd only and set bios to Raid.
Insall Win7 w/ intel Raid driver "no need to install raid drivers during install, w7 has what you need till you run the rst app""
Install chipset drivers
Install latest IRST sofware/driver
Follow stickies and other info as if ssd was set to Ahci to optimize
Install Hdd's and build array

I too have a raid setup (raid5) with a ssd (ocz vertex2) on the P8P67 Deluxe, but I can't get windows 7 to start with the BIOS in raid mode, only in AHCI. I originally installed windows with only the ssd installed, and in AHCI mode. Then I switched to raid mode as required, and installed the 4 drive raid, but couldn't get back into windows. I reset the mode to AHCI, and I am having no problems now (raid still seems to exist and is stable, just no way to change raid settings since BIOS is in AHCI mode during boot). Is this setup stable, most seem to think the raid should fall apart in AHCI mode?

This was all done with the stock BIOS 05xx, and I just switched to 1053 last night, still seems fine but I haven't tried to boot in raid mode yet. I will probably also be switching to the new 1204 BIOS soon to fix the dual post issue. Has anyone found any issues or positives with UEFI 1204 yet?

And yes, the hyper 212+ touches the Corsair Vengeance, but doesn't push at all, no problems.

This is why I installed with Bios set to Raid first, like in the thread at the OCZ forum. Again I am no expert but these steps worked for me. One other thing is that all of my drives were new and clean. I didn't transfer anything from another system. Also I am on the 1003 Bios for the Pro MB.

Basically the steps to follow are thus:

1. Plug all drives in.
2. Boot into BIOS, change drive setting to AHCI(options are IDE/RAID/AHCI)
3. Boot off Windows disc and install on SSD.
4. After installation, go into BIOS, change to RAID.
5. Hit Cntrl + I(this was the short cut for my onboard RAID controller to go into its set up screen; refer to your motherboard manual, since its an ASUS i think it should be the same).
6. Select the drives to set up the RAID Array.
7. Select the strip width( i recommend the setting above 128kb for video editing purposes).
8. Create the Array.
9. You now have your entire setup running as you want it.
10. Remember to keep your BIOS in RAID mode, for if you change it the array will fall apart but you wont lose data.
11. Your SSD will remain in AHCI mode.

Hope this helps




Your a legend this helps me big time anyway

sorry to necrobump but i tried what was suggested here^ and it failed epicly, it erased my windows install and now both drives are only being recognized as one and its only 238GB when i've got a 120gb SSD and a 1TB HDD...

I'm not sure you can create a raid with 2 unequal sized drives?

Not to mention I dno't think you want to create a RAID necessarily but it sounds like you want to use your SSD for caching?
