    Don't ask why but i need a minimum write speed of 248.83mbps and i was thinking of using 4 of these hard drives in raid 10 on this motherboard.

    Is my on board raid gonna be able to handle that?

    Onboard RAID is just fine for RAID 10. Unless you need certain enterprise features, which I doubt you do.

    Should be a none issue. Even on my older Intel chipset it was a none issue with 6 HDD's in Raid 10.

    Although i would test and use each drive for a while just to make sure there running as well as they should be.
