I'm working with a machine that uses Asus A8N-SLI Premium motherboard, which has a Silicon Image 3114R RAID controller onboard and two drives in RAID-0 (why??!?!?).

The motherboard failed and I was wondering if tracking down a PCI RAID adapter with a 3114R controller to recover the array might work?

Update: I ended up moving the drives to a second computer and using Raid Reconstructor to move the data to a new hard drive but the advice below is sound.

It should, just make sure that when you recreate the array that you also don't reinitialize it, otherwise that will wipe all of the data.

You do not need or want to recreate the array; it will simply be recognized when you plug the drives in. – psusi Jun 8 '11 at 1:31
