    Question EX58-EXTREME with PCI-E 4x Marvell 9485 controller card?

    Hello,

    This is a compatibility question. I would like to add a Marvell 9128 (Highpoint 640L) or 9485 (2720SGL) card to my EX58-EXTREME (w/ latest modded BIOS). I currently use nine of the ten onboard SATA ports and the Intel controller does host a four-disk RAID5 array.

    Will the system accept a RAID controller card? Windows 8 will be installed on an S. S. D. connected to the card and I would like the option to connect multiple drives for a wipe-and-reinstall with a second RAID5 array in the future. Does there exist a conflict?

    Thank you,

    Silekonn

    2x RAID controllers might cause the shadow memory not enough problem, but maybe it would works without any problem, and i think you have to conntact Highpoint for support as well

    Hello,

    Thank you for your response. Can the controller card be used in AHCI to maintain the Intel array? I cannot afford to lose the current storage configuration.

    Thank you,
