    Raid card on these mobos?

    I see that the new Zotac and Intel mini ITX boards have x16 PCIe slot. I was thinking of trying to plug a hardware RAID controller into that. Is there any reports that's such a configuration wouldn't work? Is the slot compatible with other things except graphic cards...

    Should I partition my RAID5 array?

    Staggered spinup on WD GP drives
