Recommend mobo for Promise FastTrak SX4000 IDE RAID 5 system
Posted on 2004-03-24
I’d like to build Windows 2000 or 2003 Server machine with IDE RAID 5 (2 HDD mirror and 3 drives in RAID 5)
I plan to buy Antec tower case with plenty of room, Promise FastTrak SX4000 card...
Please recommend P4 motherboard that has the best compatibility with Promise FastTrak SX4000 card (or similar Adaptec card) from your experience.
I know that Promise has a list of recommended motherboards but I prefer to her your real life experiences.
Please recommend mobo and other parts of this machine and avoid expensive solutions since this is not for production but for the home lab and learning experience. The system should be reasonable affordable and very stable system.
