Nope, lol. Only a windows guy myself, I only mess with linux stuff in VMs and keep them stock. Maybe someone could help you in the Linux section of the OS section.

Knipsel.PNG 55k .PNG file hi sean,
thanks again for this sweet guide.
followed everything.
now i just found something and i dont know if it matters but it looks strange imo:p
i whas browsing the forum and found a post reffering to bootracer.
it took 16 sec:-o
also when i looked in system information it showed ide behind the sata drive.
is that wrong or am i missing something?
i turned on ahci in the bios so i geuss its using it.
also the starnge thing is i dont have ide poorts on my mobo, only sata afaik.
is there a way to check if ahci is really on?
thanks

edit: ohhh duuhhhhhhhhh maybe atach a pic of what i see in the program.
must be stoned or something:p

Want to go samsung because I haven't heard of any reliability (epidemic) issues and speed is consistant with most of the drives out now.

Now I'm figting between a x79 and z68 system. Priced the 3930k system yesterday, and with a 6950 and a 64 gb 830 = $1700 (still mATX YAY!) and z68= 2500k w/ 7970 and a 128 gb ssd = $1700 (mATX too)

Le sigh.
I want moar cores >smile.gif
I can upgrade the gpu when I get my bonus next year if kepler is worth it's salt, or get another 6950 (prolly not want single gpu solutions)

yea... going away now so I don't hijack this thread anymore LD.

Get Z77 and a 3770K when it is out, I'm buying myself that...How the hell is a i5 + 7970 + mobo and SSD that much?

I don't want to wait another few months to buy my system, other wards I'd be waiting for z77 too smile.gif.
7970 is 300-350 more than the 6950.

rounding system costs up for z68, down for x79 w/ a 2k budget.

linking the wishlist just to make it easier.

Z68
X79 (add the 3930k for 600 coming to 1840, but considering the 3820 which would put the pricing in line with the z68 system. add's 4 threads and might be able to still get the 7970)

isn't IB-E going to be compatible with x79?

edit: going with option 1(z68). I can get a rasa kit with the extra funds to WC the gpu biggrin.gif when block are out. (in the future)

Hello:

IS it possible for me to add/enable the SRT function after Windows has been installed on the HDD? Basically I would like to setup Windows and add the SSD drive a little later to be used in SRT mode. The way I think I understand it right now is that I would need to re-install Windows in order to enable the SRT?


Thanks!

Yep, actually that is how you set it up. Just need to make sure you have the Intel SATA driver installed with the control center and when you get the new SSD just plug it in and enable the SRT.

I'm also assuming that since I know I'll be setting up the SRT eventually, that I will need to change the SATA settings in BIOS first. Set main HDD to RAID and once I have the SSD ass AHCI?

Thanks again! (yes, I know I should start from pg1 of this thread, and I will)

I need help. I cannot set up my raid array on my ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX. I have my SSD drives hooked up, SATA settings set to RAID. I am prompted to hit Ctrl+F to enter RAID setup but I don't get the RAID setup but something else. I'm about ready to throw my tower across the room. Anyone have any ideas. Below is the screen I get when I press Ctrl F.
