Well here we go again Post by JasonH. Register a new account. I remember having some Supermicro motherboards that actually had a little special slot just for a plug-in Adaptec RAID controller. I searched the Intel web site and did a fair amount on the Google, but really came up with zero performance information on these controllers specifically relating to which one was better within the context of this particular motherboard. Yup, but the drives on the Marvell controller still never appear. At any rate, these tests aren’t particularly meant to be the end-all performance measurement between these two controllers, but it is an interesting comparison. Bad drivers, bad performance unreliable and not Intel.

With that being said it leads me to believe you have little or no real world experience setting up, managing, or maintaining any form of RAID for redundancy or performance purposes.

Win 7 intel wirless lan driver for aspire E I have never tried because i never had an e-sata drive. Nibiru Quick Scotty, beam me up! You would know better than to use software RAID vs. Lets re-wind and take saga journey to the first posting that Matt published.


I have resolved this issue on my dxbx2. Downsides are that you’ll lose the IDE controllers, but at least in my case that’s no contest. If so, how can this be done once Intel MAtrix is already installed? Yeah, this sounds a lot like that Sapphire Radeon HD Storage: BIOS see the drives, just not windows.

Seriously, though, I would find it hard to believe that software RAID would be even marginally better or equal to even the hardware-assist RAID implementation, especially under Windows. This tool uses JavaScript and much of it will not work correctly without it enabled.

Intel’s site says the board doesn’t support the OS – “drivers not available” But people here seem to be using it anyway.

Could this thread hold the key? I do have to echo someone else’s comment regarding the quality of parts put on these motherboards.

Yup, but the drives on the Marvell controller still never appear. Best regards, Matt Dralle Comparsion Table: Is there a useful i.

You can not post a blank message. You can see that the e-sata is part of the marvell sata controller, so i guess this would be activated when enabling the marvell controller in the bios.

Test results Post by JasonH. See the first two sentences? On the other hand, in the non-RAID configuration it was basically a draw between the two controllers.
