I'm looking to do an upgrade to expand and speed up my Media drives for video editing. Right now I have a 1TB running alone. I'm not concerned with redundancy since I back everything up daily on my NAS. What I'm looking to do is take 2 2TB WD Black drives and RAID0 them for better performance and storage.
My question is, what is the best practice to do so using the Sabertooth X79 motherboard. I see that I have 2 different sets of SATA ports. One is an intel set and another is Marvel. Which should I use.
I should note that I have 2 SSD's and the 1TB hard drive plugged into the intel slots right now. So I will have a total of 4 plugged into the intel if I go that route.
Can/Should I set the RAID0 up on the intel set (I haven't heard great things about Marvel)? I've read in the manual that if you enable RAID on the intel chipset, all the ports will have RAID enabled on it. Should I be concerned with that with 2 SSD's and the RAID all on the intel set of SATA ports?
