The only problem I found is that some have unrealistic expectations of the power supplies. Also, some don't get it about backup and lose it all a few times. Toss in dual boot...
Did you supersize the power supply?
Mainly what I'm asking is do the motherboard manufaturers Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI supply decent enough software that helps in the RAID configurations.
My Idea is to have XP in a 0+1 four drive configuration and also have a PATA drive for a different operating system.
I have built and constantly upgrade my current 2 physical disk PATA dual boot system. How much more difficult can building a 5 disk SATA & PATA system be?
