Well, the good news is.. Bios Update: 0703 is stable and works fine. I also tried to get a lower vcore on various OC's and it didn't seem to work, so this one doesn't help with any of that. It looks like 0702 to 0703 just fixes the Turbo-V functionality.

I finished setting up RAID yesterday. Is it normal to RAID 0 a 500Gb and 300Gb to get only 560GB? That's like losing 240 Gb. Also, how do I stop the screen where it says press Ctr + I to set up RAID. I'm just trying to increase my boot time. Last question is, what would happen to the RAID if I re-flash BIOS?

I dont want to believe that it was temps. It could have been anything lol
I always tell my GF not to move around too much in the room while Im benching.. I dont want her to create heat lol

Right now I am working on a stable, Low Volt 4Ghz OC.
I've temporarily given up on 4.2Ghz.

I've dropped my Vcore to 1.30 (1.288 in CPUZ)
21.0x191 = 4010Mhz
Blend Prime95 @ 1 hour so far and max temp of 79 on my hottest core. Im liking the looks of it so far.


haha @ the GF part. rep+ for that

If you RAID two drives that are unequal in size, you are only going to get as much out of the biggest drive as your smallest drive is. So basically, you are only seeing 300GB of your 500GB drive, because the other 200GB cannot be striped (there is no other 200GB on the other drive to stripe with). Its actually not really recommended to do RAID 0 with two non-identical drives for this reason. You only see 560GB because it is 300 + 300 - format space.

You can't get past the RAID screen if you have a RAID array. Its just gonna be there. Flashing the BIOS won't eliminate the RAID, but you will have to reenable RAID in the BIOS to see it again.

Anyone enabled AHCI before they installed windows?

I did this here:

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...sta.html?ltr=A

And did raise my WEI score for my drive from 7.4 to 7.8

HOWEVER, it did make my rig randomly BSOD on bootup, so I reverted it back and changed it back in bios.

Yeah, I actually forgot to enable AHCI prior to installing Win7 and ended up having to re-enable it through the registry afterwards using that guide you mentioned. I did this several weeks back or so and it's worked perfectly. No BSOD's or the like during bootup.

I don't believe it does. As far as I know, it currently supports i7 920/930/940/950/960 and i7 Extreme 965/975. And of course the new 6-core proc's coming out soon.
