yes the black sata ports are faster than the blue ones, as the blue ones are hardware based and black ones use drivers based on the southbridge chip. I have tested this with my WD black drives, with blue slots i was only getting about 170MB/s with RAID 0 and with the black ones i get around 220MB/s with RAID 0

OK this is good news about the black six sata ports and RAID since I need the black ones to use 3 drives for raid 0 and 3 drives for raid 1. Then I can use a larger 2TB drive on the other blue sata port for storage since one of the blue will be used for my DVD drive and possibly later on a Blue Ray DVD drive.

I am hearing the SLI mod or Hack is fubard on the 25x.xx drivers and the GTX 4xx cards. Is there any truth to this.

Now the RAID 0 has me concerned as I am planning on running 6 drives in RAID so the two blue slots would not be enough slots for my RAID 0. This means I may need to look for an alternative solution for my raid... Sure do miss how the old DFI LP NF4 SLI DR/Expert had 4+4 sata ports for raid. Now I can see what all the commotion was about when it comes to raid and those DFI 939 boards...

"All latest SLIPatch OS versions are working good with any driver from 180.xx to latest 257.xx versions so far. SLI for Fermi-based cards, like GeForce GTX 465/470/480 still works with SLIpatch on X48 systems (another chipset should work too, but untested in hardware for now). If you tested SLIpatch with Fermis on non-X48 chipset, feel free to report this to update article."

From the guys that are making this possible.

I'm sure if it is fubar'd atm it will be fixed

I sure do hope the board performs just as good or even better than what I've been expecting.

N2Gaming crosses his fingers.
ooh thisd be interesting to see lol post it up when u do the benchies

I will do my best... Although the test's may take a while to perform... Maybe I should do the test's on one of my Destroyer system now while I'm waiting for my inner conscience to decide what ram to get. I've been wanting to do GTX 460 SLI but I have also been wanting to GTX 480 SLI So I'm a bit baffled as to the decissions I have to make. One thing is for sure. I already have the 6x Samsung F3 Spinpoint 1TB Sata drives for the raid and the CPU and the mobo for the testing. The rest will fall into place in due time.
