Hi all, I plan on doing an upgrade of my pc this weekend. Among the things I'm upgrading is a new MB, a Z77 extreme9 from Asrock. Also adding a transcend 240gb ssd as well as going to windows 8. I plan on using the ssd as the OS drive. I have a few 1tb hard drives laying around and figured I'd try out installing these in raid 0. Here's my sata config for this motherboard: Sata ports controlled by Intel chipset: 2 x sata3 6.0gbps ports(plan on putting the ssd on one of these. 4 x sata2 3.0gps ports(want to put the 1tb drives on this in raid 0) Asmedia controller: 4 x sata3 6.0gbps ports(useless to me in what I want to do because it can't do raid) So my question is....I'm going to have to put the intel ports into raid mode in the bios. How will that effect that lone ssd drive on the intel chipset that isn't raided? Can I leave that there by itself, install the OS on it, and have it function as a single disk while also being able to raid 0 the other three hard drives? I hope what I'm asking makes sense. Thanks!
