That's what I thought. But... after I format those 2 drives in RAID menu (do I need to format them before I start to set up RAID for example using gparted or sth like that?) ... after I format them and set RAID can I plug in that 3rd drive and will it be visible in freshly installed system. I mentioned that I have all data on that Seagate, so is there any risk of losing my data stored there?

I just picked up a used 790fx-GD70 board for a new build. This will be my first build using fairly new hardware instead of slapping 5 year old 939-cpu/DDR-mem to 790/sb750 mobos.(see my system) I know I'm late to this party, but here is a list of stuff I have so far..

Mobo: you know!
Case: Corsair Obsidian 650D mid tower
PSU: Corsair AX850 modular
UPS: Cyberpower 1350va / 810w Pure Sine Wave
Mem: G.Skill PI Series F3-12800CL6T-6GBPI - 3 x 2 GB - DDR3
(gonna use just 2 sticks and keep 3rd as a spare)
VGA: 2x MSI HD6950 Twin Frozr III O/C PE
SSD: OCZ Vertex 3 Sata III
HDD: WD7501AALS-00E3A0
HSF: Thermalright Extreme (may try water later)
CPU: ? (4 or 6 core?)
Tuner: ? (Ceton InfiniTV4 maybe)
OS: Win7 64bit Pro

I plan on trying to run the mem at 1333 with tight timings.. Hoping for the timings listed on the Gskill Pi mem 6-8-6-20 1T but we shall see. Not looking to shatter any records.. just want a nice stable OC..

I'm planning on using the SSD as the OS drive. Been seeing lots of posts about the Vertex 3 SSD causing random BSOD's on some boards. I'm already aware that using the Sata III drive on a Sata II board will limit the speeds, but from what I've read the 120GB sized SSD's can only do mid 200's on certain read / write ops anyway. I'm just looking for improved performance when compared to a mechanical HDD.. I should have researched the SSD a bit more before buying the OCZ but hey.. I might get lucky and not have any issues........ LOL

Question 1:
I'm trying to decide on a CPU for this board. Should I get the 1100T six core, or the 980T 4 core? (pc will be used for gaming and media for 55" plazma and some 24" 1080p lcd's) Does the six Core really offer much of an overall improvement.. The prices between the two are so close I'm leaning towards the six core, but its clocked to 3.3 ghz vs 3.7 on the four core.. Which processor would offer me the best value?

Question 2:
Any tricks - tips - traps I should know about? (still trying to get thru this thread.. been jumping around but would appreciate any pointers!)

My very 1st build used an nf3 K8N neo2 plat... It had a lot of tweaks avail on it for a noob... (at first the board was a footgun.. until I learned to stop pointing it at my foot) I would like to avoid that same experience with this board if possible...

An SSD will not be comparable to a standard mechanical HDD. It will perform so much better that its not even fair to compare the two. Regardless of whether you see low, mid, or high 200's in read/writes with the SSD you go with, it will feel and perfom 10x faster than any standard HDD.

Get the 980BE for gaming/multimedia. The x6 chips are only better when really heavily multitasking or doing heavy encoding/transcoding work where you need as many cores as possible. For games, there's no difference between the X4 and X6. Just a matter of which chip has the highest clock speed.

I read somewhere that six cores can put more strain on mobo than a 4 core if overvolting/overclocking due to the number of cores involved. (sounds logical) Plus the 980 is clocked at 3.7ghz vs the 1100 at 3.3ghz.

I plan on making use of the pc for encoding / transcoding, editing video formats, burning and playback of blurays (video and data), playing games, streaming video (porn) to extenders.. biggrin.gif using WMC7 with 4 tuner CETON cable card, plan on running 24x7 and just looking for an all around decent (quiet) reasonably powered pc for gaming and various multimedia duties.

I don't want to work extremely hard to get good performance... >= 60fps is fine for me provided its quality frames.. no tearing.. no flicker.. Also want the pc to STABLE. Even if to the detriment of some performance.

Also want it to be quiet enough for use as a HTPC. (but doesn't have to be completely silent or anything..) With all of the BSOD horror stories I've been seeing on the blogs, I'm wondering if I made the right chioce with the Vertex 3... jus hoping my combo of hardware / software somehow avoids the studders/hiccups.. ninja.gif

I should've gone for the 240gb model, but I just can't bring myself to pony up the $$$... I've already jumped the shark (budget wise) with two graphic cards... but they're so freaking cool I just couldn't resist.. devil-smiley-019.gif (this will be my first crossfire rig.. god help me!)

Has anyone on this thread made use of the Vertex 3 SSD with the 790fx-gd70? I would be interested to know if any problems can be avoided with these if possible.

No there is no risk as long as you set the seagate in the bios as the boot drive. Also no need to format them first because as soon as you raid them everything will be lost.

And why is that? I mean why do I have to set it as boot drive in Bios? At the moment I got systems - 2 Win 7 - one on Seagate and the other on Samsung. I changed system boot menu using Easy BCD.

OK. Thanks for your help thumb.gif

hey guys just got myself a corsair h100 and asus crosshair v board....wow temps on my C2 955 are awesome. at 4ghz 1.5v maxed core temps only around 45c! my old red scorpion with a ultra kaze 3000rpm fan would get over 60c with 3.7ghz.

That's pretty good results, especially with a C2! I've got my C3 B55 (quad core) running 4ghz 1.46v at around the same temp with my H50. thumb.gif
