Turns out my RAM refuses to overclock at all without causing rounding errors in P95 or failing to boot.

How did you set your RAM multi to X20? I can only set it to the 266 MHz bumps.

I just bumped up my OC to 4.9 for testing and here is the same memory (same settings) and their aida64 bench:

I have 1 SSD and multiple HHDs.

I set the BIOS to ACHI and installed Windows 7 on the SSD.

I planned to configure the non-OS drives in RAID5, but then discovered this not supported in Windows 7.

So, I want to reinstall the OS on the SSD after configuring the HHDs in RAID 5 using Intel mobo RAID.

I changed the BIOS for the Intel SATA connections from ACHI to RAID.

But when boot, I never get the mobo 'CTRL + I' option to get into Intel RAID before Windows 7 starts up.

What am I missing to access the mobo Intel RAID configuration?

Thanks

Hey guys, how is the onboard Fan control for the G1 sniper 3??? I have a phantom 820 case, which has a built in fan controller but really does suck and was wondering if any oh you use the onboard system fan controller's on the sniper 3

Oh and here are some pics of my setup smile.gif

I use an NZXT sentry to control my fans. I could never get speedfan to work properly on my motherboard. I especially could never get voltage based fan control to do anything; I couldn't even run my Antec 620 pump at maximum off of a header for some reason.

The fan controller on my original NZXT phantom was terrible. I would assume that they didn't put that much more effort into the 820's fan controller.

Wow, this board sold out. Hard to find it anywhere. Wonder if Gigabyte will make more?

Why wasn't a full cover waterblock built for this particular board?

This is a high end gaming board... I don't get it.confused.gif

Its up to block makers. Imho, its not really a high end board. The UP7, which does have a block, holds that title for the z77 range. The Sniper3 is more of a midrange board that is at the peak of its range. So its the big dog for the middle range segment of GB z77 boards.


You can always have a custom one made or just use universal blocks smile.gif

edit: but I'm with you, a block should have been made frown.gif

Yeah!

I'm picking up the Corsair 900D and have all the fittings and wc parts for a sweet build. But not having a waterblock for the board kinda ruins my plans. mad.gif

So... How can i have a custom one made?

There's a member who makes one. Tbh, once you're done, you'll end up spending the same amount of cash to just get a mb w/ a block made for it. Cheaper just to get universal blocks.

Probably because it makes zero difference. VRM watercooling on 1155 is for swag only.

You could sell the Sniper and buy a UP7. That has a waterblock in production.

Custom waterblocks will probably end up costing you at least $400
