Hey again guys.
Wondering if you can help me with a motherboard related problem.

Working from a cold boot in the morning or after I get home in the afternoon, my computer will hang at the motherboard's boot screen. (The screen with the GD-70 logo from where you enter BIOS.)
The boot screen hangs on from a cold reboot, but once I restart my computer, it goes right through to starting up my OS. My computer friends have reason to believe it's just that my CMOS battery is old. I want to run it by you fellas before I go ahead and change the battery.
Also, if it is old, how would I go about replacing it without losing CMOS or the time on my computer?

P.S. Thank you, MastiffMan. I replaced the thermal paste on the mosfet/SB/NB heatsink and they run at about 6-10 degrees cooler.

You should put her back to 3.6ghz 200x18 and set the CPU Voltages to Auto. ANd run her in Prime95 Small fft's overnight, then bump her to 3.8 (x19) without change in Volts (Auto) run her overnight again then try 3.9 then 4.0ghz.... You have a good Dye Cut Number so you should be in good shape with volts.

Yes I still have about 20 Liters left over from my last session. Should be enough for a couple of hours.

Ok, posting a video. I know that the startup is nowhere near what it should be. Stopwatch time from the "Starting Windows" flag being formed by the glowing orbs until the blue "Welcome" screen is 22 seconds. Startup is truly under performing...

I would say so.

Have you tried only booting from one SSD without Raid to see if there is a difference? If there is then it would seem to be the raid setup, if not then the OC.... I'm not versed well enough at all in the Raid settings as some others.....
