Default SATA RAID Controller Cards

I have two different controller cards, from two different systems. Both are PCI. One a SYBA brand, the other an I/OCrest brand. If that matters at all.

Can you mix them? As put them both in one board, or does it need to have the same chipset?

Just wondering. I don't think I'll have to do so, but who knows.

I'm really only guessing but you should be able to use them both. My present mobo has 3 different SATA controllers built-in.

But that's on the same type of chip.

I mean, I can try it, see what happens. Just thought I'd ask while I'm still waiting for my new board to get here.

Each controller has it's own chip or circuitry.

I meant, it runs off the same BIOS, right?

No, they each have their own sub-bios

If the chips are different manuf. then it probably won't work. You can swap chips / boards / cards if they are identical. If they are different the array probably won't be recognized.
