Asus A7N8X-D - with RAID?

I have an Asus A7N8X - Deluxe.

I am wondering if anybody knows whether it will run RAID configurations on the standard IDE (Parallel ATA) channels.

The motherboard book has got SATA-RAID 0/1 written all over it. Does this indicate that RAID is ONLY available over SATA??

Any thoughts?

  1. As far as I know A7N8X Deluxe only supports SATA RAID but not PATA RAID.

  2. Get two of the SATA/PATA adapters and you can use your PATA drives on the SATA RAID controller.
  3. The raid is only on the SATA connections. You can use the SATA-PATA converter, but that usually causes some latency in the conversion and slows your drives down a bit, though if you're using raid that wouldn't matter.

  4. I finally had to put in an Adaptec 1200A RAID card to make the system work.

    I guess I should have read the docs closer but when it said that it did RAID I assumed that it would do it directly from the Mobo and therefore with any HDD.

    It does need a SATA drive OR a PCI Raid card to be added.

    Thanks to all.
