Completely misread that.

It's better to use two SATA II mechanical drives in RAID. One mechanical drive can't saturate the bandwidth of SATA III.

Yeah, that's a good alternative. Pretty much the same thing minus a couple 6Gb ports and heatsinks on the board.

Hmn i never trust MIR, since its always take me like 4 months- half a years to get the MIR back... so for 156,30 $ might just as well go with the asrock extreme 4 s deal on superbizz, which cost the same as 155$ and have way more feature.
