I was looking at the ASUS Rampage III Series mainboard but I am disppointed that it only has 2 SATA3 6 GB/s ports, is there one rampage mainboard that has 4 SATA3 6GB/s ports?

What are you connecting that is so fast it needs the SATA 6 GB connection?

i want to t 4 SSD's from Crucial and place them in RAID 0 (or whatever number it is)

So, would the SATA3 connection make that much difference over the SATA2 connections for this situation? I'd have to see benchies of a 4 SSD set up on a 6 GB controller vs. a 3 GB.

Seems you have 2 limits here, 1 being the individual port limit and the overall controller bandwidth. I think the port limit per drive is about 300 MB/s.

I bet you'd be just fine using the SATA2 ports of the ICH10.

then i can use the two 6 GB/s SATA ports for the RAID 0.
