    Default [SOLVED] move existing raid1 from ga-ex58-ud5p to ga-ex58-extreme

    Hi there,

    stupid me damaged the cpu pins when upgrading my board with another cpu.....
    it was lsdmesap posts which alerted me it was most likely the pins damaged (got memory detect problems) so many thanks for that ! Huge time saver.

    As I invested in a 2nd hand 970 chip and there were quite some pins bent, I decided to go for a replacement board and i could get a 2nd hand extreme board. Playing extra careful now with the cpu and hurray the system runs on the OS disk, have not hooked up my raid1 set yet.

    I wish to know if the raid1 set can be connected to the gsata ports and run as raid1 without rebuilding (and without data loss).
    I used the set on gsata ports in IDE very successfully on the old board and have not made a backup.
    i know I can hook up one of the disks as a standalone disk and then access the data, secure it and then define it is raid1, but it will save me time if I can move it as-is.

    Thanks for any tips !
    Regards, arjan.

    Yes, raid sets on the same controller will work on another motherboard. In fact, on the gsata controller I did not have to do anything, BIOS recognized the set instantly

    glad you were able to answer your own question, both boards are using the same controller, so they will be interchangeable.

    when my x58a-ud5 died, I went to an EVGA board. luckily again with the ICH10R intel controller, I hooked up my RAID0 drives and boom, booted right up.

    Vin
    Main Rig
    OS = Win7 64 Bit
    CPU = i7-980X @ 3.8Ghz 166x23 cooled ba a Corsair H100
    Mem = 6GB 2000Mhz Kingston HyperX running at 2044Mhz @ 9-10-9-27-1T
    MB = Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 v1.0 with F6 Bios - Dead Board
    MB = EVGA X58 Classified3
    GPU = 2x EVGA 580GTX 1.5GB in SLI
    HD = 3x Intel 40GB X25-V in Raid 0 (580MB Read/140MB Write)
    Storage = 500 GB WD
    PSU = Corwair TX950W
    Case = Cooler Master HAF-X 945

    HTPC / Home Server
    OS = Win7 64Bit running XBMC HTPC Front end with Windows Server 2011 Virtual Machine with 8GB ram assigned for homer server with exchange
    CPU = AMD 1090T
    Mem = 16GB 1600Mhz Kingston RED Limited Edition running at 1600Mhz
    MB = Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
    GPU- EVGA GT210
    HD = too many to count, but about 5TB of storage all together including backup
    PSU = Corsair TX750
    Case = Too embarrassed to mention.

    Benching MB's... Asus P5Q and Gigabyte 890FXA-UD7... too many CPU's and RAM sticks to list. :)
