Basically like the title says, my Mobo died on me.

Its a MSI K9A2 v2 platinum.
It has a 790fx / SB600 Chipset.

Ive been searching for the answer for ages now.
But i wanna know will my replacement mobo have to be SB600 not SB750/SB810 in order to migrate the array without losing my data?
Also does it have to be 790fx as well?

My current setup is Raid 0,
2 x 400gb hitachi HDD.
Ive read people saying that it needs to be the same chipset,
by that do they mean manufacturer or EXACT chipset, same North + Southbridge.

I want to be able to go from SB600 / 790FX to an SB 750,

afaik, the Southbridge controllers storage and smaller hardware so the Northbridge shouldnt matter.

I know that intel is entirely backwards compatible.
