Hardware Raid Controller

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi there, I have a M2N SLI and I want to add a hardware raid controller but I'm not sure of the PCIe speeds that this motherboard will support.

I've been looking at the Adaptec 1430SA http://www.adaptec.com/en-us/support...ii/aar-1430sa/ and the HighPoint RocketRAID 2310, http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product...82E16816115027.

Both are PCIe x4 cards, will I be able to run either of these in the x16 slot and have it work at x4 speed or do I need to look for a x1 card?

Thanks in advance.

yes they will work fine in 16x slots. PCI-E is backwards compatible so if the card fits it should work, I say should because there will always be exceptions to the rule
