    Default 990FX Extreme4 RAID / Marvell SATA question


    So I swapped out my old ASUS M3N-HT delx mempipe (2 raid controllers on board). I installed the ASRock 990FX Extreme4.

    I am running my WIn 7 64-Ult on 2 128Gb Sata3 SSD's RAID -0

    What ports would this RAID operate fastest on?

    I currently have them on port SATA3- 1&2 and I am getting 450 MB/s transfer rates for random accesses. It was 700 on my M3N-HT...

    I have 2 x 2TB spinning drives on ports SATA3- 7&8 running software RAID-1 through windows, though I am debating using my PCI-e raid card for those 2 drives because it is slow at 80MB/s.

    I have my DVD's on SATA3-5&6.

    I am a little dissapointed with this board as I thought the Marvel SATA controller was RAID enabled, but I can't find RAID support for SATA3- 7&8. And the manual is not specific as to where the RAID should reside on port SATA3 -1-6, it works on 1&2 though.
