Asus A7N8X-D - with RAID? Tags: Motherboards Asus NAS / RAID SATA Last response: March 16, 2003 10:25 AM in Motherboards Share FEB March 13, 2003 4:51:50 AM 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? Thanx MY case has so many FANS it is tired of signing autographs!

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.

FEB March 16, 2003 10:25:34 AM 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. MY case has so many FANS it is tired of signing autographs! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
