Hey guys ok I thought I had the perfect motherboard picked out but I was reading reviews on newegg and people kept complaining that they couldn't set up RAID on the SATA III Marvell controller.
Now I don't plan on setting up SATA III RAID right off the bat, but I'd like to at some point during the life of this platform.
Can you guys suggest some good X58 mobos. I'd like to stick with Asus or Gigabyte because they have the longest warranties at 3 years. Evga gives you a measly 1 year. Also none of Evga boards support USB/SATA III.
Imo, SATA III isn't matured yet and I personally wouldn't do a SATA III RAID set up until the next chipset revision. The last thing I need is a corrupted array.
That ASUS is a good board and I'd get it. However, keep in mind that SATA III is relatively new and I recommend waiting until the next chipset/BIOS revision before doing RAID on SATA III.
So it's not just Asus? No board supports SATA III in RAID? I understand the technology it's in it's infancy but I only do so many platform upgrades in my life. I might as well wait for the next revision I guess.
Also is the Marvell controller that bad? I think I remember people complaining about it. But from what I've seen there aren't really any alternatives.
