Since the data is divided equally and written on two hard drives it also increases the data bandwidth by two. I would also have liked to see Iwill specify brackets that allowed one to use all the USB2.
The board has an intriguing exterior thanks to the slots and some connectors matching with the textolite in color and a cooler made of semitransparent plastic and illuminated with motherboarr LEDs.
