What I thought was a bios issue turns out to be blown capacitors (see this thread http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=103240 I have my drives in raid configuration and now need to transfer the data (mostly family pictures) to either a new motherboard or the same as I have now (A7n8x Deluxe off ebay). If I purchase the A7n8x and it should hopefully be plug and play. But I would be spending $50-60 for old hardware that is out of date. I was planning on building a new system and I was looking at the MSI P43 Neo3-F board. (this will be a budget build). I don't have much experience with raid so I don't know if this would be plug and play with the new board. The MSI board uses JMicron 363 controllers and the Asus uses Silicon Image Sil3112À. Is raid pretty much raid regardless of controllers, or would I be risking losing all data by trying to plug them into the new board?
