I probably going to switch to a HX750 that I have in the other system that I have. Need to wait until spring break before I can do anything.
Even if I get that, I probably dont even know what to do with it.

My SSD boot drive gets re-ordered after a shutdown.
Firstly this was bugging me when I was isolating Bclk. Everytime I upped my Bclk and rebooted I'd have to re-order the boot drive and sometimes this would have to be done several times before it would stick.
Now that I've found my target and am happy with the OC, the Bios will re-order the boot drives everytime it is shutdown so I have to go into the bios and set it up each time.
Since this problem wasn't there with my i920 I'm trying to find out what might I try to change to stop this happening.
My theory is that after shutdown the SSD somehow doesn't get recognised first time round so the bios tries to boot from a different drive.
This seems to be supported by the fact that once I've got it booting and do a restart it's fine till I shut down again.
Has anyone experienced this problem - is there a setting that might help here?
Plug the SSD to port 0.
