I am planning on buying a Asus P5K Deluxe . I want to run achi sata for my vista x64 and then make a raid on my e: drive because i used that for my music prodctuion(samples). F: will be just a extra sata drive for my audio recordings. IS it basiclly possible to run raid and sata at the same time on the same chipset? I dont want to use the jmicron controller because all my 4 hard drives are internal sata 2 drives. I also dont want to run sata cables out to the esata.

My only complaint about this board is I was not able to run RAID and a regular SATA drive on the same controller. First time that ever happened to me. I ended up having to run a dual RAID0.

There have been many issues with the P5K Deluxe regarding RAID / SATA installations.

If you decide to get the board, get it from Newegg.com since they offer a great RMA service and you'll be able to exchange it for something else if it doesn't work for you...

Give it a try!
