Hello,
Can we run RAID 1 on the Marvel SATA Controllers?
Can we span RAID 5 or 10 across 2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray and the
4 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), blue?

More about : raid asus p8z68

I learned the hard way that RAID is NOT supported on the 6GB/s ports on (any version of?) the P8Z68.

They way ASUS writes on the site could be a little misleading

"IntelĀ® Z68 chipset :
2 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s), gray
4 x SATA 3Gb/s port(s), blue
Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
Support IntelĀ® Smart Response Technology "

^ This means that RAID support is ONLY for the 4 x SATA 3GB/s ports :( 

As far as the marvel controller goes, i'm not sure - but from what i've read around, it seems unlikely.

^ okay i was WRONG!

RAID is infact supported on the SATA3 - 6GB/s ports on the P8Z68-V (and probably others).

I just got it working... For some reason CTRL+I started working and got me into the Intel RST menu at boot, where i could then set up the RAID.

I read on the "SATA 3 Very Disappointing" thead that the Marvell PCIe 9128 controller can do RAID 1
Still don't know if you can span RAID 5 or 10 across all 6 of the Intel Express Z68 SATA ports.
