RAID on ASUS P8Z68

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?

  1. 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

    "Intel® 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 Intel® 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.
  2. ^ 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.
