Asus M5A99FX Pro r2.0

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Three things:

Is this a good board for some moderate overclocking with AMD FX 8350/Radeon 7950?

Will this support RAID for a SSD + HDD? (Do I even need raid? SSD is for OS, HDD for everything else)

Will this support: www.gskill.com/en/product/f3-1600c8d-8gab

Thanks, sorry for being such a noob :l

Here is the build I'm considering: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Chelate/saved/1IYe

Nothing in this galaxy will support that setup.

Should. Is it on the Asus QVL list?

Hope that helps

Of course it helps! You're fabulous.

Also, I looked at the QVL, and the MB does not support that ram...guess I need to look for different low-profile memory. In fact, I seem to be having a hard time finding low-profile ram that is compatible with this. 40mm ram seems to be the highest that can fit with my Ph-TC14pe and thus I shouldn't have a problem. But, if anyone knows ram <40mm that is compatible with this MB, please let me know.
