SATA 6Gb RAID 1 setup

Hello,
new build of ASUS Sabertooth X58 mobo, i7-920, 3X2 DDR3 1600, windows 7. I have OS on a 250 GB SATA 3 and am trying to setup 2x1T SATA 6Gb drives in RAID 1 (Marvell onboard utility) for data storage. RAID setup in BIOS seemed to go OK but I cannot see any drives other than C. I am new to RAID. Any help would be nice.

  1. New disks or RAID volumes won't show up in Explorer with drive letters until they're partitioned and formatted using Disk Manager:

    - Start -> Right-click "My Computer", select "Manage"

    - Click "Disk Management" in the left pane

    - Find your new drive in the LOWER portion of the right pane and right-click on it to create a new volume (which partitions it) and format it.
  2. Here's a question for you... would two SATA 3G drives transfer data faster through a SATA 6G interface?
  3. No, in fact I'm having trouble getting 2 SATA III drives in raid 1 to go faster then SATA II drives on that same board. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/266245-32-slow-raid-sata
