Need help with 4 hd's and RAID Tags: NAS / RAID HD Storage Last response: October 27, 2009 3:37 PM in Storage Share Anonymous a b G Storage October 26, 2009 11:06:25 PM So I have a couple of questions. 1. Is it possibly to set up 4 HD's, 2 of them will split the data for faster writing times, the other 2 will mirror the first two. I beleive that is raid10? i could be wrong. 2. if it is possible where can I find a detailed guide on how to do this? 3. is this mobo equiped to do 4HD's RAID? I think it is, but i'm not sure.. http://www.mwave.com/mwave/SkuSearch_v3.asp?scriteria=B... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Though many onboard RAID only supports 0+1. The difference is minor. But you can also do something else: using Intel MatrixRAID you can make a 4x RAID0 and RAID1 / RAID 0+1 at the same time. To understand this, this picture may help: Intel ICHxR RAID drivers are the only onboard RAID which support this, as far as i know. You have ICH10R which is a very good chipset for onboard RAID. In fact, its the best onboard RAID you can have. Dewm October 27, 2009 3:37:37 PM Yeah the mobo that I have selected wouldn't support the matrix. that is intresting though, And with this chipset how difficult is it to set up what i'm talking about? Or do you know where I can get a tutorial on this. I've looked around online and can't seem to find what i'm looking for. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
