Well, i try to say that if you will set fakeraid and - in future - your motherboard or raid controller will fail - this will be serious problem to recover data, or synchronize new array.
If you use software raid you are indenpendence from hardware. Even if all hardware fail (except hard disk in case you have raid1), you can simply remove disk to new PC, add a new hard disk, and synchronize your raid.
