This seems like an obvious question but I cannot find the answer online or in whitepapers. I want to build a hardware RAID-5 array with (4) 1.5TB WD15EARS SATA2 drives using the four black (3Gbps) ports on the mobo. I need to confirm this will work before purchase! What is the current size limit of the SATA2 drives for this chipset?
The latest RAID software for DP67BG is Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) 10.1.
Any disk greater or equal to 2TB (2,199,023,255,552 bytes) will not be supported in RAID mode.
It will also not allow booting to Volumes that are >=2TB.
Yeah, I couldn't find anything either. Even the article you linked just has brief anecdotal info. You'd think there would be a press release or tech bulletin from Intel. I wanted to read about large drive support in RAID and array limitations.
Sheesh, they really know how to hide important info!
