Hello,
I've been looking around the web for a sensible answer to my question; but, I have failed to find one. So, the problem is: My old Motherboard has failed, got a second one and it failed after a week or so, too. Simultaniously I've been trying to upgrade my system... The main problem is that I have a RAID1 on my system, and I'm wondering if there are any new Motherboards with the same RAID controller, The old Motherboard is a Gigabyte EP45-UD3R, I think it's an Intel controller. My Question: Is there any new motherboard; for the new Sandy Bridge Processors, that have the same RAID controller, or one that is cross-compatible, so I can just use the old hard drives and their corresponding arrays?... It will be the only thing I'll be using of the "new" system.
Your help is appreciated. Thank you...

Intel controllers are backward compatible. I believe you could even move a RAID 1 from ICH5R, which is very old to ICH10R. The EP45-UD3R and the Sandy Bridge motherboard use the same Intel Matrix Storage drivers.
