I'm interested in this board and I have two questions:

How long is the POST and boot time with Windows on a SSD? My current X79 board takes way too long to POST and boot into Windows which is annoying.
Has anybody populated all 8 DIMM slots and can run 2133Mhz on their RAM successfully without any crashes?

Hello all, this LOOONNNNGGG azz thread has been quite enlightening, so thanks. I'm having difficult setting up the RAID controller. I can't seem to enter the RSTe Rom (Ctrl + I). I installed Win 7 on an ADATA SSD, but wanted to RAID 5 3 HGST 4TB drives for mass/redundant storage of a movie library that's gotten outta control, and was planning on using the windows mirror function for two Seagate 1.5T's.
The question I have is did I install this wrong from the beginning, meaning choosing ACHI during install instead of IDE? looking through my MB book, I noticed in the notes section it says "the following procedure is only available with a newly-built system or if you are reinstalling your OS." That leads me to believe I screwed the pooch....

Also, when I go into the BIOS and change the SATA mode from ACHI to RAID, it won't seem to boot.....

HELP?? Thanks in advance...

Is anyone using the RAID from the chipset for storage or is everyone mostly concerned with their SSD/OS?

RAID or redundant array of independent disks, is a storage technology that combines multiple disk drive components into a logical unit. Data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways called, depending on the level of redundancy and performance required.
Now;
A chip-set is a set of electronic components in an integrated circuit that manage the data flow between the processor, memory and peripherals. It is usually found in the motherboard of a computer. Chip-sets are usually designed to work with a specific family of microprocessors. Because it controls communications between the processor and external devices, the chip-set plays a crucial role in determining system performance.
Moreover;
A solid state drive (SSD) is a data storage device using integrated circuit assemblies as memory to store data persistently. SSD technology uses electronic interfaces compatible with traditional block input/output (I/O) hard disk drives
After all.
How do you want these things to cooperate.
Furthermore.
I do not use any of these SSD/OS or WEB external storage, because My concern applying or is data protection.

I need some help with my RAM I have installed 8 sticks of Corsair cmt-16gx3m4x2133c9 but I'm not able to run it faster then 1600MHZ, if I install just 4 sticks it work fine with 2133MHZ whatever I changed nothing seems to work, I have tested the ram with memtest and all is fine, I'm using Xeon processer E5 8 core, these processors are made to run with many memory sticks so not sure it even cannot post once I set speed higher then 1600MHZ, no matter what ram settings, voltage I change I'm not able to get this work, your input would be highly appreciated
