    i cant see anywhere in the manual that says that sata 3 or 4 can be used as ide


    though it doesnt say they have to be used for raid?

    ill try connecting my 1 converter to sata 3 and see if i get anything

    well i just put my sata adapted ide device into sata 3 port and booted up and its showing in windows

    so id say that you can run them all on sep master channels as long as you buy the adapters :)

    i cant guarentee 100% but it looks liek you can simply as im using sata 3 now without any probs

    but baring in mind im not using 1 or 2 or 4


    hope that helps

    I've a IC7-G, when you boot you see a message telling you what Raid arrays you have and also any un-raided devices so it looks as if you can use the sata ports for 4 individual drives, but why would you want to do that? Raid 0 has a small but definite performance advantage. If you do use parallel ata devices they must be ata100 or better or they won't work.
