RAID question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Can I buy a dedicated raid controller (looking at an areca card) and run a raid array on the dedicated controller and my mainboard at the same time?

I want to run my raid5 on the dedicated controller for data redundancy and reliability incase my mobo goes, and a raid0 on my mainboard for speed.

Thanks,
Jgweb2000

And in case the card goes?
You still have a single point of failure.

You should be able to, although personally I would use the card for your RAID0 array as well.
