The replacement board will "learn" the config of the RAID.  No worries there, but make sure that the RAID isn't degraded and partially through a rebuild at the time ... if you can help it, of course.

Also the MAC address will be different.  This usually won't be a problem unless you have some software that is licensed to a MAC address (doubtful, but possible).

Obviously write down all BIOS settings while you have them, so it knows what HDD to boot first, as example.
