I have 1-4 set to RAID and I have my ODD plugged into one of those ports and it works fine.

^^^Ooooh nice. I never tried it since we have 6 ports to work with and I had set mine to RAID and didn't think it would work. Since there were no instructions reflecting one way or the other I chose to err on the side of caution.

Haven't been in the RAID setup option in a while, just don't set the RAID to boot priority. (Unless you plan to boot from it)
No other reason to have SSD imho. Too spendy for the speed to run it for any other application.

I will get one but it won't be for awhile. I've set my sites on h2o and I've sold the H50.

Really? Geez, I've been playing around with trying to dual-boot and swap files for days, I wish I had tried this first! Going to power down and check this out, THANKS!

I have to ask if I just didn't RTM properly, so where did you learn this tidbit?

edit: no joy in Mudville, RAID array not seen after booting the SSD...

Hello everyone,

I'm thinking of getting both the crosshair iv formula and extreme motherboards one build for my brother and one build for me, but i'm so confused about what ram i should be buying.

They will both be used for gaming but mine will also be used for design too on the side.

As far as i can tell, the lower the timings the better and g skill ram is compatible for the 2 boards. Ideally both boards will be fitted with 1090t's clocked to 4ghz and the ram overclocked to as close to 2000hmz as possible, notice i said ideally.

is g skill the best for OC'ing and what sticks should i be looking at?

Hmm, i see there is much discussion about hdd`s and ports etc.

I have to run Sata as IDE, if i try ACHI or RAID, my Vertex 30GB OS drive bsod`s everytime booting

Have you checked out the OP? You'll see a memory selection guide along with some other useful links just under the spread sheets etc.

Myself I've found these that I'm currently running that OC real nice (listed in my rig sig) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231321
I'm getting just over 11 GB/sec and they're on the QVL, simply put, they work awesome! Look around at some of the other members sig and ask them how they like what they have, but from what I've seen these compare to other dram costing twice the price.

It seems G Skill flares are the best way to go but they are sold out everywhere.
G skill ripjaws are nice and cheap and some on here have said they OC nice, might just get those, for his gaming rig and if they clock nice to 1800, then i'll see about getting some higher rated ones for my extreme.

In sayin all this by the time i get enough money together for my build AM3+ will probably be out with their nice bulldozer cpu.

I don't know how to overclock yet so going to have to get reading some tuts and watch some vids to make sense of it all.
