Thanks for the bios update.

I have been reading this board and using the expertise on here since last December. One of my 4890's has dieded(boohoo) and I have not enough rep to post on the wanted board. If anyone knows or sees a

First time poster on OC.net.

I recently just tried RAID5 on y MSI 790FX-GD70 board and it didn't go as well as I planned. I wanted to put 4 Samsung Spinpoints in RAID5 with a 500GB Caviar Black and a 1TB Western Digital on the SB750 controller. On the other JMicron controller I had to put my OCZ Vertex II 60GB SSD because it wouldn't work with RAID enabled on the SB750 controller.

I got the arrary working, but when I got into Disk Management it showed only 2048GB unallocated and 756GB unallocated. I'm assuming it did this because of MBR be limited to 2GB. Do I have to select GPT in order to have it over 2TB? Also, I couldn't edit the 756GB space for some reason. I might have to split up the array manually in RAID ROM during bootup.

Also, my 500GB dropped out of the RAID. I thought anything not included in the RAID would be treated like a regular drive? Whatever the case, I decided to buy a SATA Controller card for the drives not in the array.

Lastly, some person told me that you can actually only use 6 drives on this board, not 8. This true?

I sure hope not as I plan to use 6 hdd's on the black sata ports and use a storage drive along w/a DVD drive on the blue sata ports.

I would think that you may have to convert it to GPT because of the 2Tb reason like you said.

Also, Have you tried increasing the SB voltage a bit? That many drives, it may clear things up or at least help with the I/O stability of the Sata Controller....

Using the bios now. First time with this board though~

I'm getting 74 degree NB temp right now(running prime95), is it okay to leave it like that?

Yeah not sure if it is true or not. I decided to buy a SATA Controller card for my other two hard drives that are non raid because my one non-raid drive kept saying it was dropping out with AMD RaidXpert.

Time to redo the arrary and see if I can fix the problem.

While Folding on my system (100% stress to CPU, both GPU's and ~50% load on memory I reach about 74-75* on my NB (according to everest) So I would say that that is okay but I would watch it as I do mine. MSI reported safe temp is 80*C

List updated If you were not able to add your specs to the list I apologize but try again I think I fixed it.
