Transferring disks along with a controller between servers

Q: A motherboard in a server burned out. There was RAD5 of 5 disks with LSI MegaRAID controller. There is a reason to assume that the controller and the array were in working order. If I transfer the controller and drives to another server (different model/motherboard), the array would work?

A: A hardware controller with disks is a self-contained unit, so if you install drivers as required on another system, the array will work. Just in case, do not swap the drives on controller ports, because in some cases it is significant.
