This is what it should look like if you are in RAID.
Having slept an hour here and an hour there for more than a week now, the only response I am now capable of is now would just sound sarcastic. Kind of like: "My that's nice"; or "oh so pretty"; "yeh, I know"; or "You must be a proud father".

But then I come to the obvious: You are a good and sincere friend. You are in fact one of the few who continues to assist me in pushing Doggie Poop uphill.

Quite honestly, I am sick to death of this whole SSD's in RAID thing. No one, not even on other sites, knows a darned thing for sure. We are all nothing more than fishermen and with no "Catch of the Day" to show for our efforts.

If I were a hobbyist or someone with nothing but time on his hands, then I would pursue the problem. But I am not; I need these computers to work ---
so I can work.

So I'm going to do just as iamlongtime so pragmatically suggested.

Do not blaim you at all.

If it works, run with it.

I tell ya, I have spent intire weekends tring to work around bugs in some of the systems I have built. (including all nighters)

It takes alot of what you have done, and then some.

Some freinds ask, "How do you do it" and then tell me "I would have thrown it all out in the yard by now"

Believe me, I have been ready to throw a few in the yard myself.

Then you have one of those "AH Hah" moments and it all falls in place.

So, I am sure that you know much more about RAID and SSDs than you did.

Next time (if ever) you will have a head start on the endeavor.

Cause from what I can see of your problem it looks like it's a graphics issue. Might be the game doesn't like XFire. There are some games that don't.

I'm assuming you're playing the latest one? I'm jealous.

~Ceadder

Yeah you were right.. one gpu only and no issues. Bet its this pos psu. For what its worth my sli rig had problems too but atleast it only crashed to desktop instead of sinking the ship!

Thanks.

So totally right Caedderman. You know, I have tried withholding the goodies, but the girls just never seem to mind. But if I had been born female, well I gotta tell ya ... my rep would be ....

Oh and thanks to HeadMixer for all the moral support and the many helpful suggestions.

I really feel so indebted to you. You know, I think I'm gonna name my next illegitimate child HeadMixer

Kinda glad you settled with your rig the way it is.

I was fixin to come up there.

Did I tell you, My brother-in-law and I use to do sound reinforcement.

He was the engineer and I was the "Head Mixer". I ran the sound board.

Now you know.

I'm glad you got that sorted out. When you get a chance get a Corsair PSU of at least 850w variety. I would suggets the AX Gold because if you ever find yourself wanting to sleeve your cables you won't lose your warranty. That and Corsair gives extra cables for nothing.

Neweggs got the Ax1200 on sale until the 31st and I think I'll go for it once I have the funds set aside. Anyhow so far it seems stable as long as Crossfire is off, but ive got 1600 mhz ram stable with just a .1v cpu/nb increase. Also manually setting the vcore now as auto was overvolting the cpu at 1.3 volts and 16 multi. Just working on a stable baseline for now. Will start overclocking real soon, but was wondering if I disable a couple cores could I get even greater performance overclocked?

Thanks

Just out of curiosity everyone seems to quote product and prices from NewEgg and NewEgg only - as if it's the only game in town. I have even felt required to do so myself here on OCN for fear of, OMG, being ostracized.

The truth is I have actually purchased a few products from NewEgg and have no complaints. However, I have purchased much, much more from Amazon.com without a single glitch.

Why Amazon, and not NewEgg: No TAX and always Free Shipping

Amazon, to my understanding, only collects sales tax in states where they have warehousing and points of distribution. As far as service, Amazon is absolutely second to none.

I post this only FYI. Quite possibly I'm a bit too careful with my money.

I purchase primarily from Newegg because most of the time they offer free shipping and their warehouse is only one day away and quick for free shipping. I've also purchased gear from Amazon but their selection isnt as good and sometimes the items are shipped from a third party and still has shipping charges. In this case Newegg has a ten percent saving code that undercuts amazon even they're charging a $6 shipping charge. Those bastards!

Anyhow I sometimes go with Performance-pcs.com like today to buy a San Ace fan and 5 1/4 bay mount for it which Newegg does not like sell. Sometimes I go with Frozencpu, Sidewinder, Petra, and even Crazypc. Not to forget Tigerdirect because they offer discounts through entertainment guide and they're customer service is excellent.

So don't think I'm a Newegg fanboy but sometimes they have the best deals on big ticket items. I just wish they had more competition though I would bet you that Bestbuy is trying to be and will be a bigger etailer before you know it!
