Dead mobo, how to access data on RAID drives?

I have a dead 5 year old Asus motherboard with the Intel Matrix Raid. I had 2x2TB WD drives set up in Raid 1, and I’m looking for advice on how to proceed. Is there a software driver that would allow me to access the data on those drives on a different PC? Or is the only way to pull data off of them to get them installed in a working PC that has the Intel Matrix Raid?

(Edit) Mobo is ASUS P5Q-EM DO.

plug in one of the drives into a drive dock, enclosure, or install it internally to a pc.

I have to admit, I'm feeling a little stupid right now. :)  That worked, both of the drives appear to be OK. For some reason, I was thinking that the Intel RAID firmware formatted the drives in a non-standard way, and they'd be inaccessible by anything other than another Intel RAID equipped mobo.
