My System Specs

Default Moving raid array from one motherboard to another

So my wifes M5A99x-EVO died a horrible death this weekend, question is it going to give me a issue switching the board for RMA to the same board, is her raid array 0 going to still work?

Second option, I have a Sabertooth 990fx would her raid array move to this board or should I just wait the extra day for the Xship RMA?

Thanks for your help
Good Bye HWC it was great :)

I'm assuming you set up using the fake-raid most desktop motherboards employ. You will need to make sure the new motherboard has the same controller chipset or one that is compatible with the old one.
Obsolescence is just a lack of imagination.

I know that any array made on an Intel ICHR will work across various chipset versions/motherboards as I've done it before.

As for AMD though, never tried. I'm assuming it should be like Intel though. Just set the new board up to RAID mode and hopefully it detects the array.
