I have the same board. Tip: get a new Nforce chipset fan as early as you
can. Here in Germany you can get one for free by asuscom.de as the very
fast rotating fans are failing quickly (mine after less than 2 month
24/7 run).

already said.

Right, forget the RAID functionality the motherboard manual tells you
about (might be useful when running Windows®, because only the very
expensive versions support software RAID like Linux does
out-of-the-box). Use Linux software RAID as you do. You do not loose
