SSD + 2x 750 GB Raid 0 installation on new MOBO Tags: NAS / RAID SSD Storage Last response: March 19, 2012 5:39 PM in Storage Share Stalzy March 17, 2012 5:17:07 PM Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 I own a 128 Crucial M4 SSD and 2x 750 WD Cavier Black 6 Gb/s and a DVD-RW drive. I'm wondering what is optimal installation for this config is. SSD is used for OS and a few APPS. While the Raid 0 is going to be used for FRAP's video capture and small storage. In order Closest to furthest away from CPU: Marvell Serial ATA 6.0 Gb/s connectors (7ping SATA 6G_E1/E2 [navy blue]) Intel Z688 Serial ATA 6.0 Gb/s connectors (7pin SATA 6G_1/2 [gray]) Intel Z688 Serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s connectors (7pin SATA 3G_3-6 [blue]) Where do I plug my SSD and 2xRaid0 ... as well as my DVD drive.

The raid array on the marvell ports! DVD on any of the left over ports! Make sure everything is set on ACHI mode. Stalzy March 17, 2012 8:59:27 PM Wouldn't I want to set it in RAID mode before?
