Default dual raid on a8n-sli deluxe

Hey guys,

i recieved all my comp bits in the mail today. Just waiting on the case to put it all together. While im waiting im just figuring out the way i want to connect the HD's in raid. I have 2 WD 36 gig raptors that i want in raid 0, and 2 WD 160 GB sata drives i want in raid 0. For anyone that is familar with the a8n-sli deluxe motherboard, you will know that there are 8 sata connections on 2 raid controllers. Four connections can be made to the silicon image raid conrtoller, and four can be made to the NVraid controller. Im trying to figure out the difference between the silicon image and nvraid controllers. Basically i cant find any differences. Does anyone know how i should connect up my hd's? Basically should i do it with all four on the silicon, all four on the nvraid, or two on each??

Im actually not sure if i NEED to have two hd's on each controller, or if i can connect two raid set-ups using the same controller?? Perhaps each controller can only support one raid configuration?

Any help here would be appreciated

I have the same question. What did you end up using? the nvidia or silicon? Thanks.
