Your motherboard has been tested and it works by booting from the PCIE.

I would consider it if you need the speed as this is smokin!!!!

Go for it... and report back.

Decent capacity SSDs are a bit too pricey for me at this stage, but I'm definitely looking forward to the day when I can have no 5.25", 3.5" or 2.5" drives of any kind in my PC.

Not sure if the RevoDrive 3 X2s are worth it over the standard RevoDrive 3 though. Two more SandForce controllers means two more possible points of failure.

or instead of worrying about what is going on with ocz
you can just go with some m4

two of these
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148442

Save like two hundred bucks and pretty much know your getting reliable drives unlike the ocz drives which have errors..not that i own them yet only reviews and such that i hvae been reading...

plus the new firmware 0009 for the M4 gives a significant boost in speed..

plus your saving 200 bucks which you could probably spend on something else ..like say the cooling...

+1

I think this is the better configuration I have seen in this post. You have great performance, reliability and 200$ to buy another thing you need.
