    Hi guys I am also having some issues with RAID setup on the UP4.

    I'm currently trying to set up a raid0 array across 4 120G Kingston SSDs and can only see 2 drives when I get to the setup screen. Both sets of slots are set to raid in the BIOS and the motherboard is seeing all 4 drives. Is it possible to have a 4 disk raid0 array on this motherboard?

    Do I have to set up 2 arrays of 2 and then combine them? Thanks!

    There is one caveat. These are 4 kingston 3k hyper x ssd in 120gb. However they are a few model numbers apart because 2 of them I bought back in 2012 and recently wanted to add 2 more. The 2 older ones are SH100 and the new ones are SH103. This wouldn't make a difference would it?

    the drives being mildly different shouldn't make a difference, but you need to make sure that all four drives are plugged in to the same coloured SATA ports. Are they?

    Vin

    EDIT:

    Chipset:

    2 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (SATA3 0/1) supporting up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s devices
    4 x SATA 3Gb/s connectors (SATA2 2~5) supporting up to 4 SATA 3Gb/s devices
    Support for RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 10
    * When a RAID set is built across the SATA 6Gb/s and SATA 3Gb/s channels, the system performance of the RAID set may vary depending on the devices being connected.

    3 x Marvell 88SE9172 chips:

    4 x SATA 6Gb/s connectors (SATA3 6~9) supporting up to 4 SATA 6Gb/s devices
    2 x eSATA 6Gb/s connectors on the back panel supporting up to 2 SATA 6Gb/s devices
    Support for RAID 0 and RAID 1

    Yes,

    I have all 4 SSDs plugged into the grey slots 6-9 of the Marvell controller. When the system boots up it's almost as if it initializes each controller separately, ie 2 setup screens.

    according to the specs there is only 2 controllers. the intel 3/6GB and the Marvel 6GB. Why do you want to use the marvel? you will lose between 1/3rd to 1/2 of the performance using the marvel vs. the intel.

    EDIT: in your manual go to Chapter 5, there is a good description on configuring the RAID array.
