As I understand it, each drive in a RAID set-up needs to be connected to a SATA port, but what if there isn't enough SATA ports on the m'board?  Then what? :rolleyes: 

 

My spec:

Asus M'board Micro ATX, DDR3

AMD Athlon x4

WD 500GB HD SATA

MEM Gskill 8GB DDR3 unbuffered

Asus DVD optical

WiFi Netgear Router-modem, Asus USB dongle

Antec 650W PSU

Thanks, didn't even know they existed.  That particular one only supports RAID 0, 1, 1+0 though, no RAID 5.
