I have a GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard and it has 3 SATA controllers:
- ICH10R (SATA2)
- JMicron (GSATA2)
- Marvel 9128 (GSATA2)
The latter two support 6 Gbps devices but I only have 3 Gbps devices. I have a DVD drive, SSD system drive, and two 2 TB data HDDs. I want to RAID1 the two HDDs.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to how I should set this up? I'm not sure if I should put them all on one controller or split them up. Do the RAIDed drives need to be on their own controller? How do I choose one over the other?
Over my head!
