Is it possible to spindown harddisks in Gen 8?

I have moved a boot-able OS drive from a Intel controller to a B120i and set it to RAID0 and have had it work. Going the other way does not work.

Which controller?

If I was going this route, I'd go with an ASRock E3C226D2I Mini-ITX server board and build something around it.

I agree with others that the Gen8 probably isn't the choice for you, tedaz, unless you're okay with the fan being a little louder.  Of course (I can't attest to this, not using my Gen8 in AHCI mode) the newest BIOS may have helped some with this.

 

EDIT:  Of course, the Asrock board is like $210 after current discount.  Maybe a little fan noise is worth putting up with, otherwise the Dell T20 may be the best choice as others have said.

I don't remember, the discussion is in the forums somewhere. What I do remember was the issue was getting the B120i drivers on the drive prior to the move.

Question, my server arrives this week and I'll be moving my disks across from the n36l. Will I have to format them all to add to the array controller in a multiple raid 0 setup? They are all currently ext4 drives.
