    upgrading z77 to Z170->will i lose my raid array?



      I was a happy owner of a GA-Z170N-WIFI running 1 SSD for Windows7 OS + a Raid5 Array with 3x6TB just disks for datas which I just sold because it was time to upgrade to a GA-Z170N-WIFI motherboard, and now I'm worried to lose all my data stored in the 12GB volume of my Raid5 Array (of course i'm getting new cpu and DDR4 ram).

      Are there any chances to lose my data? (I'm going to stick with Windows7 btw for now not interested in windows 8 or 10)

      Do you think I will be able to have my data on the Raid5 Array recognized also by the new Z170 chipset or I might get in trouble with that?

      I have already sold my GA-Z77N-WIFI motherboard together with the 3770K CPU and the 16GB DD3 RAM, plus there was no way I could backup 10TB of datas to any place, so please someone tell me there won't be any compatibility issues with the new chipset.
