Sabertooth X79 RAID 1 Question

Apologies up front if this information is here and my searches didn't find it.

I'm considering a new machine based on the Asus Sabertooth X79. I would like to have Win 7 on a SSD, two hard drives and the DVD R/W on the intel SATA controller, and two identical 3TB hardrives in RAID 1 on the Marvell SATA controller for data.

Will the Sabertooth X79 support this?

If so, are there issues I should be aware of?

Thanks in advance.

  1. There is no problem for the x79, you need install the win7 into SSD 1st, then also install the intetl RST ( you need use the F6 method), for more info go to intel website: http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/highlights/chpsts/imsm

    By the way for SSD go to the "Useful SSD Articles - Part 2" http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/270102-32-useful-articles-part
  2. Thanks, that looks very helpful.
