@BlackDragon24 does it matter what XXXk Stripe you use on RAID 0 ? Im using the 12Xk
Yes, as my post was written, I read somewhere that when setting up RAID, whether it was RAID 0, 1, 5 or 0+1, that the onboard RAID utility captured all of the SATA II ports and by doing so, you would be unable to connect a DVD drive to a SATA II port and be able to boot from the DVD drive. To use a bootable DVD drive, it would have to be connected to one of the SATA III (6/Gbs) ports. Now my question is, is what I read TRUE?

I am only going by what I read. I will not be able to verify if myself until I received my new mobo, which is currently in transit with Fedex.

no its not True, i have 2X1.5TB in RAID 0, 1X1.5TB storage and 2XSATA DVD Drives and everything works fine all on the SATA 2 Ports

Kewl, thanks for the input. I figured as much. Would find it hard to believe that ASUS would put out a board with that type of limitation.

I am currently waiting on the last part of my new build (ie, the mobo) and have been reading a LOT of info about this board and OC'ing and looking for as much info as I can get my hands on. I build a new maching about every 4-5 years. My last build was a P4 3.0 GHz Intel Perl Board, so I'm a bit behind the times.

Working on getting it stable. Getting watercooler soon. Max temps are hitting about 75°c.

Yes, you can do it that way, there's nothing wrong with leaving some of the settings as "Auto". The only downside to that is, it 'may' not always be the best thing to do, when trying to fine tune everything to get better stability and/or lower temps. Out of curiosity, what tool are you using to test stability and what are your exact settings for it?

I've been testing whole day (got the C7D) and during that I've encountered some issues which I thought will be worthwhile to share in case anyone else got it.

Long story short - got a nice stable settings 4.2 with C7D, Offset on, however the problem was - a high pitch squealing / whining appeared at certain times - it wasn't very loud, but it was irritating.
It was always there when multiplier was 21 but system was idle and voltage was fluctuating.

I desperately wanted to remove it, so have tried all the possible CPU related settings in BIOS and those were the only 2 types of settings to completely remove it:

1) With offset voltage - turn off C1E - anything else is irrelevant
2) With manual voltage - anything irrelevant

It's pretty obvious to me that this is caused by some coils (or whatever else) on the board which passes the voltage and it doesn't like when it changes a lot. Constant min. 0.94 or max 1.272 were absolutely fine.

The only thing which is unknown to me is why the issue appeared when I've put my new Corsair memory.
In theory it should be completely unrelated, plus I've tried various ram settings, CL7 to CL9, 1600Mhz to 2000Mhz, 1.50v to 1.64v - all irrelevant.
And it's not that I've hammered sticks into the slots

Hope that helps if anyone got similar issues and haven't got around it yet...

I think Intel spec is 1.35 for QPI. Its a shame too because I can do 1950 at 1.35 QPI but need 1.425 for 2000. Maybe fine tuning some settings can help but me thinks its just necessary for it to run that fast.

Found for me on my platform that 64K stripe performed the best. But only like 1-2% faster than 128K. 32K would be ideal if you could control cluster size.

It depends on whether or not you trust the board to make the right decision over you .

Sweet. Is 219 the bclk limit of the board?

Weird man. If you put the old memory back in is it ok again?

Unfortunately old memory is OTW to seller so have no way to test it.

I'm very happy with the new sticks, stable and got full 6GB every boot - thinking that perhaps the few day on offset make some bad coil to loosen and over time caused it.

Running now 4.2 @1.28v (manual, no offset) and I think this is it for me, will leave it now, no squealing, good performance, time for me to stop breaking things
Time to play some games in 3D now

I know gigabyte users often have same problem and similar solutions tend to work, however their boards squealing is much worse, with more noise and also with various PSUs.

I was about to buy this MB, when i came across asus website i find out this board has problems with ram and other thing's. if you put in 6gb ram it only shows 4gb its happening with OCZ not corsair. But i see some people who have this board are using gold OCZ 6gb ram (witch i am getting). I would like to know has anyone had these issues and well you still recommend this board.......sigh after researching MB for a month i thought this was going to be it. it seems to me x58 MB all have problems please help guys i am tired of searching and reading i want to purchase my build. By the way this is the link that shows problems with MB (Heads up).
