According to mbreview.com review on Soyo P4I875P motherboard, the RAID chipset is HighPoint HPT372 Controller Chip. Again on page 5, it says: [The ICH5-R natively supports drives up to ATA/100 specifications, so if you’re utilizing an ATA133 drive you’ll need to use the HPT372 controlled IDE connectors. ].
