SATA ports on the ASUS M4N78 PRO motherboard?

Discussion in 'Asus' started by Daniel Prince, Apr 4, 2010.

  1. I am thinking of buying an ASUS M4N78 PRO motherboard. It has six
    SATA ports. The manual says that ports five and six must be used in
    RAID or AHCI mode. What types of drives can be used in AHCI mode?
    What types of drives can NOT be used in AHCI mode?

    The manual also says, "Due to chipset limitations, when you set any
    of the SATA ports to RAID mode, all SATA ports run at RAID mode
    simultaneously."

    Does this mean that if you have two drives in a mirrored RAID, you
    cannot use any optical drive or any single hard drives? Thank you
    in advance for all replies.
