    Default Which SATA ports on UD3P for RAID?

    Which are the best/right ports to use for a RAID1 setup on the UD3P board.....the Sata ports on the Southbridge or the 2 Sata ports on the Gigabyte chip? I see directions for setting up both in the manual but nothing about chosing one or the other. Thanks.

    THanks. Are the 2 ports on the Gigabyte chip used for anything in particular?

    Yeap, anything you want. You would need to enable them in the BIOS though.

    If your RAID 1 is just for storage you could easily just put it on the Gigabyte controller, but the Intel one does have its advantages such as verifying and rebuilding data automatically which I am not sure if the gigabyte one does or not.
