SATA Controllers & RAID-1 Tags: NAS / RAID Intel Storage Last response: June 28, 2012 4:18 PM in Storage Share vkramer June 28, 2012 1:24:33 PM I have a photography studio build with ASUS Sabertooth Z77. 2x Intel 6Gb/s 2x Intel 3Gb/s 2x ASMedia 6Gb/s 2x ASMedia 3Gb/s I have 1 SSD For OS plugged into one of the 6Gb/s Intel ports. I need to set up 2x2TB HDD 6Gb/s into a RAID-1 mirror setup. Which remaining ports should I use to set this up. As of right now I am leaning on doing 2x Intel 3Gb/s ports, or is it possible to put one drive in the 6gb/s and one in the 3gb/s. This will be a software raid done in 10.7.4 Lion Disk Utility.

Hard drives cannot spin fast enough to saturate 3Gb/s ports, let alone 6Gb/s ports, so you will suffer no loss in performance with the drives connected to the 3Gb/s ports. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
