Raid on a ASUS A8N-SLI Motherboard Tags: Homebuilt Asus NAS / RAID SLI Motherboards Mirror Systems Last response: January 26, 2006 10:09 PM in Systems Share usdeeper January 26, 2006 9:11:12 PM Hi all, Decided I want to mirror my boot drive. I have a ASUS A8N-SLI motherboard. Never used raid on a home pc before. Would appreciate some help. 1. In a mirror config, is there much difference in speed between an 2x Serial ATA150 drives as opposed to 2x SATA 3.0Gb/s? 2. To setup, I should connect both drives to the SATA ports on the motherboard? What settings are there on the drives to indicate which is primary/secondary? Is it like the standard ide drives? 3. Once the drives are connection, how do I create the mirror, is this done in the Bios? Thanks!! Duncan.

No, each interface is much faster than the sustained throughput of any trio of RAID 0 array, as well... (I would post this in the drives/storage area, as there are several folks that use RAID 0/1 more than I have...) krazyIvan January 26, 2006 10:07:51 PM http://forum.abit-usa.com/showthread.php?t=97108 Check this link for info on how to setup.
