Abit IT7-Max 2 IDE and RAID

I just built a unit with Abit IT7-Max 2, P4 2.4 Northwood, Maxtor 7200 rpm 60 gig HDD, 1024 Crucial P2700, Abit 4200 video card. The mobo has two regular IDE (ATA 100) slots, and two Raid IDE (ATA 133) slots. The board came with a serial adapter allowing one of the Raid slots to to be used with a serial cable. Couple of questions. Can I plug my HDD into one of the raid slots? If so, will it work at a faster speed? I did this at first with an IDE cable, and also with the serial adapter and cable, but it was not recognized in the Bios. However, I had not installed the Raid Controller at that point, so I put it back in the primary IDE slot and it worked fine. I just left it like that because I was in somewhat of a hurry to get the unit up and running. I have since installed the Raid controllers. Can the Raid slots only be used if you are going to set up two HDD's in a Raid configuration? Thanks.

My AT7 uses the same raid controller. I have 2 hdds set in raid0, and 2 hdds working independently.. Works great. Just make sure you go into the RAID bios and make sure you enable that drive, and you should be set. HighPoint is a much better and more stable IDE controller than the via southbridge.. It is also faster.

Edit: it's kinda cool to be able to run 6 drives, all in stand alone configuration. Don't you have SATA on board as well?

BTW, this is the Epox topic...
