I did read through most of this thread's pages so I'm not trying to be lazy. Thanks!
I'll try this one more time in case anyone is watching, as I'd like to narrow down my choices. Thanks!

I installed windows 7 rc today with 2 velociraptors in raid 0 or so i thought. When i first booted i couldnt get the raid configerator (control F) to come up but the motherboard already had them set up in stripe on sata 7 and 8 slots. So i installed 7 and tested my raid which I guess really isnt and its sluggish and no where near what it should be. What settings in bios need to be set so that when i hit control F the raid configerator comes up first to enable raid 0. Here is a image of my hd tune benchmark and it shows terrible results. Thanks for any help.

First: in bios 'Disable/CPU Features/C1E. If you disable C&Q, you'll get another 5-10% performance boost.
If Raid is enabled, it should come up automatically at boot. Look in bios Drive Booster Manager. Are you getting nothing?
To give you a sense where you should be: on a single Velociraptor in AHCI I get 100 avg transfer, 6.9 access and 179 burst. Your figures should be substantially higher.

That is your problem... Don't use the two blue slots. Run RAID off of the other 6 black slots that are controlled by the southbridge. You should see better results and it will allow you to use Control F to get to RAID bios.

Did you use the raid driver for floppy off their site to build raid setup? I seen it on there for the southbridge amd.

On the MSI site for the motherboard and download "ATI SB700 RAID Driver". You don't need a floppy for 7/Vista; just put the files onto a flash drive and when you start the installation of the OS it will ask you for RAID drivers. Just select the directory on the flash drive and you are good to go.
