I read through some old posts and it appears they stopped working around 4. Is this just Intel avoiding the support cost wrt this desktop board, or are there known issues? Yes, you can have different raid arrays from the two independent controllers Intel Matrix and Marvell. In a nut shell, here’s what I found. From the document http: We are not trying to prove anything other than which SATA controller on the motherboard performs the best and offers the most reliable solution. I have built some systems with Redhat Linux using the software RAID and it does seem to work alright, although I have to say that I have never actually had to recover from a bad drive in that implementation.

I remember having some Supermicro motherboards that actually had a little special slot just for a plug-in Adaptec RAID controller.
So I guess, if you’ve got the slot available, that would be d975xb2x way to go. As an end note, lets face it Intel is not going to spoil there flagship desktop motherboard by putting a low-end SATA controller on it. Seriously, though, I would find it hard to believe that software RAID would be even marginally better or equal to even the hardware-assist RAID implementation, especially under Windows.

Intel DXBX2 Desktop Motherboard Review :: Intel DXBX2 Features ::
I have built some systems with Redhat Linux using the software RAID and it does seem to work alright, although I have to say that I have never actually had to marvepl from a bad drive in that implementation.
Anyways, you would be better off with software raid1 on windows vs fake raid, why not try benching that. UnRAID needs to be rebooted in order to detect new drives.
The bottom line is if you plan to use RAID 1 for your system disk, you will do well to use the Intel Matrix over the Marvell controller. What size do you give them? Intrl you provide some reliability results for the different controllers using RAID1? I have resolved this issue on my dxbx2.

I read through some old posts and it appears they stopped working around 4. The guide is pretty sketchy about e-sata and Marvell so I’m not sure how to proceed or if it’s even possible.
If you still don’t have this working let me know. You cannot mix them together. By adammerkleyNovember 26, in Hardware. What’s up everyone, I’m new to the forum and just wanted mavrell say hey.
