Default RAID controller on MB also support non-RAID ??

See many of the mother boards support RAID on their SATA controllers. Is it
common for all these types of ports to also support non-RAID SATA drives?

Yes. The only thing those controllers do to support RAID is see 2 drives as
one or write simultaneously (almost) to both drives, mirroring one or the
other. Other than that, they're simply SATA controllers. They differ quite a
bit to add-in RAID controllers that do RAID 5 and have their own processor
onboard to take care of the overhead.

Yes.

However, you may still need to install the RAID controller drivers and configure
the RAID BIOS for single-drive use.

Yes......... single drive use......... or two drives as singles.
Also called JBOD.
So basically on most you must pretend you're setting up a raid & then set
the type as JBOD. (Just Bunch Ordinary Disks) (if you don't believe me then
use Google for JBOD)

FWIW, the Gigabyte K8NSC-939 enables simple IDE operation for each drive.
It allows you to choose with the drive is available for use in a RAID array
or it is available only as an IDE device. If a drive is set up as non RAID,
there is no further setup.
