well my mobo has onboard RAID, and like i said i was unsure what i ended up using. there was also an ALI RAID utility that.. kinda monitored or something but you dont need a controller if you have onboard RAID. but im sure youre right about that utility.
Now i remember, i was mistaken about that maxblast, that thing was nothing, it was the ALi RAID utility that tried to setup my raid for me. and it says right on it create raid and whatnot so.. i could only assume it was indeed for setting up a raid. ofc ali is my onboard raid so.
Most likely you will have an onboard option Yan, as most newer mobo's do. so you wont need a controller.
heres the deal on my hd. my first a maxtor 250gb did not recognize the full 250, now i know this is typically a windows problem but there were many maxtor roadblocks in solving this. second was one of my two 160's i had put maybe a few gigs of games on them, and the RAID broke, and the one would spin and go but nothing happened, tried it in a friends computer and it didnt recognize. i did not drop it or anything, it just quit one day (and it was pretty new). so if Chaos you know anything i would appreciate some help cause right now im missing 160 gigs that would put me over the half terrabyte threshhold (and i could try RAID agian)
(no sarcasm, and no offense, i would like some help).
