im planning to upgrade to a GA-P55A-UD3 with Core i5 760
i want to setup a RAID 0 using 2 SATA III WD Caviar Black 640GB 64MB cache
and also two 1.5 HDD but not in RAID
can i plug the WD to the SATA III controller and the other ones to the other one ?
will they be detected by WIN7 64 installation ?
thank you.

the motherboard has 2 disk controllers apparently :

1. 6 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (SATA2_0, SATA2_1, SATA2_2, SATA2_3, SATA2_4, SATA2_5) supporting up to 6 SATA 3Gb/s devices
2. Support for SATA RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10

Marvell 9128 chip:
1. 2 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (GSATA3_6, GSATA3_7) supporting up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s devices
2. Support for SATA RAID 0 and RAID 1

* SATA3 RAID 0 4x and SATA3 2x performance are maximum theoretical values. Actual performance may vary by system configuration.
* SATA3 SSDs are not recommended for use in RAID 0 mode on Marvell SE9128 ports.
