    I was just thinking about this, so I thought I'd ask -

    Is it possible to preserve data on an existing Raid-0 2-HD setup when installing the drives to a new mobo?

    depends, raid is specific to a raid controller, you'd need the same controller in order for the raid to work. switching your raid controller would render your raid 0 disks useless.
     
    TUngsten says thanks.

    ah excellent! thx Pancho

    so if I want to preserve all data I need to find a new mobo w/ the same onboard Matrix Raid controller then?

    Any other concerns?

    yes that should work i believe. ask banjo, hes an expert w/ raid.

    also you can ghost the hdd and stuff and then restore it back when you have the new raid set up
