I think eclipse means that the CPU cooler isn't up to par with today's "standards" I'm sure the $30-$35 range coolers would outperform that Zalman by 3-5C.

For the RAM I would suggest going 1600mhz, but honestly if you don't need the power, there's no need to upgrade.

Same idea for the CPU, if you don't need the power, don't bother, unless you want it for the (slightly) higher overclocking headroom.

Edit: I don't see anything that should be upgraded in your system for a while, except maybe for an SSD (still too expensive IMO) and possibly a new GPU, if you're wanting to buy into the DX11.

Hope things go smoothly for yah!

I always did wonder how it would be like to have a huge screen as a computer monitor. How does the setup work? Do you have to sit back 5-10 feet to see things without straining the neck?

Pictures or it didn't happen.

Sense your running windows 7 it is quite to fix the text size by holding ctrl and the using the scroll on your mouse That will make the text bigger or smaller in the window you are using.

Hi Everyone,

I recently got some new HDs hoping to do some RAID with my 790FX mobo. Unfortunately I'm having trouble getting it to work (seems like there are a lot of issues with RAID and this board).

I have three drives hooked up. One is a WD Caviar Black, the other two are Caviar Blues. What I'm going for is having all of the drives hooked up to the standard black SATA ports with the Black drive as my OS drive and the two Blue drives running in RAID 1.

I got all of that setup just fine and got Win 7 Ultimate x64 installed on the Black drive. I used the RAID drivers off of MSI's website just fine; no issues with the installer complaining about them. The OS is working fine. The issue is with the RAID 1 array (which shows as functioning in the BIOS RAID setup thing) - while Device Manager sees the SATA/RAID controller just fine, the RAID 1 array won't show up in My Computer.

Anyone have ideas? I've deleted the array numerous times, updated the BIOS to the latest (1.F I believe), clear the BIOS back to defaults, etc. Nothing is working!

Thanks for any help!
