    I just finished putting my new computer together that uses the Gigabyte P55A-UD3 motherboard. I bought 3 HDDs to put in a RAID 0 array and now I'm drawing a blank on to how to actually do it. I looked through the BIOS and and didn't really see any options. Can anyone offer some advice?

    While I've never done it on that particular board, you probably have to set the SATA ports to RAID mode first in the BIOS.

    Then during POST it will ask you to push some kind of button combination(CTRL+I maybe?) to get into the RAID controller and configure the array.


    From chapter 5 of the manual:
    It is pretty self explainitory after that, I have to admit Gigabyte labelled that option a little odd in the BIOS.

    Yeah first set the board to RAID mode (it should be the first option under where your storage options are, it'll say AHCI/EIDE/RAID, then you'll likely have to select which ports should be on the RAID. When you reboot, it'll say press Ctrl+I for Intel RAID Control, then on to the goodness :)

    BTW haven't you ever heard of going to the manufacturer's web site and DLing the manual? :p
