I have 2 300gb wd sata drives and 2 320 gb seagate sata drives plus a 750 gb sata drive. I want to buy the gigabyte p35-ds4 m/b. Its got 8 sata ports, one controller with 6 ports and one with 2 ports. I want to set up 2 raid 0 arrays 2x300gb and 2x320gb and have the 750 gb on its own.
How should i connect them in order to get maximum transfer rates between the drives? i.e. raid0 1 to raid0 2 or any of the raid arrays to the 750gb drive and vice versa. Do i connect them all to the 6 port controller or do i go with 1 raid array on the six port (plus the 750 gb drive as stand-alone) and the second array on the other controller?
I have the 965-DQ6. I have 4 HDD - Connected as 2 Raid 0 arrays. I connected the two WD drives to SATA ports 0 @ 1 and Connected my 2 seagates to port 2 & 3. I use the two Jmicron sata ports for my optical drives.
