besides, you shouldn't use it for data. you should use it for OS and apps.
imho, you are in more danger with RAID-0 than SSDs when it comes to data security.
with ivybridge, you don't need anything higher end. you will hit the thermal limits long before you hit the VRM limits of the board. i actually like the fact that you didn't waste money on a highend board.
I was considering that, i also was considering getting a 2tb caviar blue
I need more then a 120gb on my OS drivd since i have alot of applications i use. I might get a 250gb drive down the road.

I think you'll never run into problems or anything. Congrats man.
Yeah I think I'll be very happy with the chip at stock let alone OC'D

The seagate barracuda or hitschi deskstars are better in RAID 0, I heard that the caviar blacks can randomly fall out of a RAID array for no reason whatsoever.

Really? i thought the caviar blacks were the best drives availiable. also I wont see an increase with the higher speed ram?
