MSI Z77 Mpower owners club / All things MPower - Page 226

you can run 3x Xfire, as it should enable with only PCI-E 4x for GPU's # 2 & 3.. with the appropriate CPU

I have a new build Z77-MPower w/ i7-3770K, 32GB 2400MHz DDR3, MSI GTX 660 Ti OC, which I plan on setting up a RAID 1 on two 1TB drives for data. I have a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB which I plan on using for the boot / application drive. This is for my son who is into SIMS seriously. I did purchase a Samsung 840 Pro 128GB, which I was originally going to use for the boot drive, but got a good deal on a 256GB.

Can you setup multiple RAID arrays on the Mpower? I am worried about not having a RAID setup for the boot / application drive. Maybe send the 128GB back a get another 256GM and setup up a second RAID 1 array for the boot / applications if the board will support it.

Other Options? Maybe add a single 1TB drive and make regular backups of the SSD, or setup a separate volume on the RAID 1 data array for backups for the SSD?

MSI has released their gaming mobos, Z77A G43, G45 and GD65. What do you think about it? Nice heatsinks for me, features and OC capability should be the same as our Mpower.

Is that bluetooh and wireless modem driver? Go to msi.com to search for all the necessary drivers.

Any reason they're still releasing Z77 boards with Haswell right around the corner?

For aesthetic look? For those who don't like the color scheme of mpower and still want to have the black-red theme like an asus rog board? Was kidding thou.
