Hey guys, add me to the club.

IMG_20110812_192302.jpg

Question though, I am coming from an EVGA 780i board and I have a raid0 array, is there a way for this new board to recognize the array without creating a new one?

I fooled around with it some last night but didn't have much time as I have work early today (4am lol we open early) and had to run to bed.

I was impressed with the bios and couldn't spend enough time in it last night to really figure out much about my problem, maybe someone here has more experience with similar issues.

I am running a 2009 bios on the 780i board, that may have something to do with it. I figure updating that and the raid controller would help in this scenario but usually im one of those "if it ain't broke don't fix it" kind of people in regard to bios (bad flash history).

Since it is two different RAID controllers I doubt you will be able to migrate the old array to the new controller. You can try by turning on RAID and then going into the controller's setup during boot up. It may see it or it may not. If it does see it, it may ask to import the "foreign" configuration. There is still no guarantee that it will work. I would copy anything that is important and just start new.

100% agree to utnorris suggestion, make a backup and give it a try.
But especially if the windows os is already running over some longer time on the old system, a fresh installation with maybe inbetween and for sure a final image just with pure os and driver installation is a good idea.
I personally switched now first time from RAID 0, which i used now over years on my former pcs to the Crucial M4 SSD: the difference is outstanding, i've never had such an ultrafast OS reaction in every way and situation! And additionally i don't have had any single problem yet with this NON-sandforce SSD. biggrin.gif

Is their anything I've overlooked?

Sorry to bump my own post, I hope this isn't against the rules but it seemed to be ignored.

Someone had here problems with the LP corsairs, not working right with default settings (they are also not on the QVL list).

It's not that people ignored it, this thread moves fast and sometimes posts get missed. I mean, mine hasn't gotten any answers either, sometimes that's just the way it is.

Now as far as your question goes, I am assuming this will be a gaming machine, so I would do a 64Gb SSD and a SATAII 1TB drive instead of the 1TB SATAIII drive you have listed. It might run a few dollars more, but if you look around for deals, both used and new, you can get a 1Tb drive for $50 and a 64Gb for around $100, doesn't have to be the latest and greatest SSD either. You will get much better response times from the SSD than the SATAIII HD you have listed. SSD's are the best upgrade to a system you can do and then the GPU. Other than that, everything looks good.

Alright then, I'll try to squeeze in an SSD, would it be better as a cache or a boot drive? I can fit an SSD in my budget if I get a gtx 570 instead of a 580. Is http://www.scan.co.uk/products/60gb-ocz-agility-3-ssd-25-sata-6gb-s-sandforce-2281-read-525mb-s-write-475mb-s-50k-iops any good? I've never had an SSD before so I don't know a good one from a bad one. Or is http://www.scan.co.uk/products/60gb-corsair-force-series-3-sata-iii-ssd-sandforce-sf-2200-read-550mb-s-write-490mb-s-80k-iops worth the extra few quid? Or would I be better getting a velociraptor since my steam folder is about 250GB

Thanks guys. My solution is probably going to be SSD caching then. Was thinking a 32g with a 1TB.
