Hi guys I am building a new 3930k system and just received my cpu today. I am looking for a socket 2011 mobo that supports four 6.0gb/s ports in RAID 0 for my ssds. Does anyone have any good suggestions of a board that has this feature on it? Thanks in advance for any help :D

Only AMD chipset based motherboards have more than 2 native 6Gb/s ports.

Intel chipset based motherboards have only 2 native 6Gb/s ports. You will be able to find Socket 2011 motherboards with 4 6Gb/s ports, but 2 will be Intel, and the other 2 will be 3rd party (usually Marvell).

So you will not be able to have 4 SSDs in RAID-0. The best you will be able to do is 2 separate RAID-0 arrays with 2 drives in each array.
