Are all 1366 boards x58? My dad has an i7 machine I built him a while back, but he's the only other person I know that has one.

Yep, X58 is the support chipset for S1366.

did you every try this? I share my story. I installed my perc in an evga x58 and two evga x58 micro. I could get into the perc's bios but the drivers could never be installed no matter what firware (dell or lsi) i tried. Its now sitting on a 775 mobo working fine.

Tried all the pci- slots? when you install it, can you even boot to windows?

Haven't had a chance to try it yet, I've been very busy lately.

I only tried one of the slots, I might try a different one, though that would mean swapping the other RAID card to a different slow which might cause some havoc.

It doesn't post. I'm not worried about drivers, but I get nothing but a blank screen and fans spinning when I try to start the computer with the card installed.

I have the EVGA x58 SLI board. When I got it covered the 2 pins with electrical tape on my perc5/i and it worked with the LSI firmware in Windows 7. No issues with the drivers. HOWEVER, when I tried to update the BIOS past the E758SZ2P version that came out 8/26/09 I get the inability to make any drivers work with the card. The next version after that made some change to RAID. I tested at least the next 6 versions and they all did the same thing. Flash back to E758SZ2P and bam, it instantly works in windows again. I don't have the BIOS change log anymore (they stopped posting it and all versions in the download section) so I don't know of any further changes to RAID, but I started a thread on the EVGA x58 forum asking for it.
