you need your raid drivers (motherboard manufacturers cd) on a floppy disk. and press a key when installing windows, before it starts the installation. i cant remember which one.... but watch the bottom of the screen. anyway. it will ask for a disk in a:\\ put it in then follow the steps

Not sure if I follow that. It asked if I wanted to partition the drives. It's doing the first one...305243MB...I set the 2nd one to that too. Is that too big? It left like 8mb left over on each.

I don't have a floppy with RAID drivers on it. It transfers from the CD to the floppy and then you boot from floppy?

I don't want to just cancel the partitioning...and I know turning it off in the middle is probably bad. 16%......

Well guys, I promised pictures tonight...I snapped a few quick ones with my trusty Canon SD100 ELPH. I wanted to use my Canon 10-D, but the battery was dead. The SD100 was almost dead too. Temps seem a little high...it's probably about 72 degrees fahrenheit in the room...perhaps I didn't apply the AS5 right...hmm. Also, I'm concerned the PSU is fighting the exhaust with suction. They both suck, so to speak. My diagram is similar to Snerps' shroud idea. What do you guys think? Also, I have two holes on the side of the window with no fans. I'd like to put a mesh in the front to allow better air intake and get rid of some of the hard drive rails to let the air floooow.....

While I wait for this drive to partition, I'll post some pics...and watch some horror movies....

woops, how'd that last one get in there? how was your last weekend? mine was hazy....

EDIT: those temp readouts now read 30 and 35 respectively. Not sure why they start out that high on the first boot....

EDIT again: both those blue fans are at about 85cfm. The Scythe is going to get a replacement as well. What do you think?

Things are good! I've installed motherboard drivers, created a RAID boot floppy in DOS. Man that was awesome, DOS commands. I got to play around a little bit and be 15 again...hehe..

Asus InstallAll is installing all the utilities. I read somewhere that I should stay away from Asus AInap because it corrupts the BIOS?

Do most people overclock in windows? Or through the BIOS?

I'm up...I love "working from home"

OK, I succesfully installed windows last night. I tore my house apart looking for a floppy, got one. It was corrupt, unable to format. Luckily I had some really really old faxmodem lying around. I used that disk.

Now I went into the BIOS and changed the boot dequence to CDrom, floppy.
Set configure IDE as RAID, and enable the BOOTROM.

Put in the windows CD, exit and save changes, and hey you guys were right! Hit F-6 to install 3rd party RAID drivers!. They installed, and now it brought me to the typical R for repair windows, enter to install.

I hit enter...Hopefully I'll have a RAID 0 array today with 2 320gb 7200.10 Barracudas!! Also, my motherboard and load temps at idle are 30 and 35 temps respectively I ran 3dmark 03 last night and it didn't go past 39! woooo!!! Hooray for not screwing up the heatsink seating procedure!!

Well, I screwed up, kind of. For this board, you have to not only configure IDE as RAID and set the BOOTROM to enabled in the BIOS, you also need to hit CTRL-I in the startup to get to the RAID setup screen. I started to install windows without doing this second step, and saw that I still had 2 separate drives....I rebooted and set things how they should, and now XP setup is formatting 1 partition of 610477MB, or 596 GB!

After this format and XP install, I'm hoping this worked, and I'll have a huge 600gb RAID 0 array with a fresh install of windows xp pro.

Does any of this sound right?
