View Full Version : Good Core2 Compatible Board for Raid Arrays?

01-07-07, 02:25 PM
Looking for a board to use with Raid 0 or 1. Give me some opinions on what available board to select to use with a E6600 and at least 2 GB of DDR2 800.

I just put together an E6600 and an eVGA 680i board. No problems whatsoever. RAID was no problem at all.

see sig.

Have you seen the results for matrix RAID? Intel easily has the edge over nvidia in this department (although you have to opt out of SLI).

P5B Deluxe and/or Asus Commando :) nForce4/5/6 chipset no way, buggy, unstable and slow RAID..

Thanks for the replies, I value each of your opinions.

I have two brand new 74GB Raptors and I am looking for a board that can make use of their combined performance capabilities.

Raid 1 Stripe, A mirror of stripes?

Sorry for a stupid question..

A mirror of stripes is RAID 0+1. RAID 0 is stripe and RAID 1 is mirrored. Sisko probably meant RAID 1 Array.

First time Intel user and to nvnews, don't know if right place to post this
Having an issue with my RAID 0. Everytime I try to install XP it gives me a BSOD right after it installs all the files and states Windows is starting. I turn off raid and just go back to regular drives it installs fine. All at stock speeds, bios updated to p24, howerver raid drivers slipped streamed into xp cd.

Any suggestions?

EVGA 680i =)

Go for a Bad Axe 2. Stable, good RAID performance, overclocks well, and it doesn't even destroy your RAM. :)

Did you configure the arrays, F10?
