I also experience LONG waiting time at the raid bios utility.
I have gotten it to install on build 7600 and can boot it in safe mode and it seems to be working fine although not quite as fast as advertised.

Try removing all disks especially your Caviar or USB drives while installing and booting. Also, I go into the format option and just delete the revo's partition/s and click next and it will let me install. I had it stable out of safe mode until I started installing updates, especially the one that allows windows to use over 32GB sd cards.

Have you been able to make it work outside of safe mode? I went ahead and switched my card to the very bottom PCI-E slot and that made it work, however, I BSOD in W7 after a few minutes unless I'm in safe mode.

Budget cards the previous platform still competes. though amd/ati is not w/out its woes too. they do have the fastest single pcb card and the 2nd fastest single gpu card (5870). mid-budget honors really goes to the 5770, its still holding at its msrp, which is pretty surprising as the high end ati's have not really budged in price. Both will make it through, playing the same game to out do each other. The 6xxx series is launching in late 2010 and early 2011, from what Im hearing its evolution rather revolution. Have yet to hear anything official about the gtx 5xx series, its still too early, but the gtx 490 (dual gtx 460 single pcb, gf104) is coming soon and a rumored gtx 495 (dual gtx 465/470/480 gf100, ???).

Im really not a "red" or "green". What ever can give me the best bang for my buck is ok in my books. so I can say Im neutral, so that makes me a "brown" side (when you combine red and green, you get brown )
crosshair iv + SLI ??? *** !! i want :O

Use the sli hack, Ive been running sli gtx 470 very stable, performance is great, though I need a new cpu to keep up w/ them. only warning is the hack is not YET ready for the gtx 460, if your contemplating this one. the gtx 470/480 (im not sure about the gtx 465, but I think it might work since its a gtx 470 downgraded) and any older model will work w/ the hack. since the CHIV supports tri sli/crossfire, so tri sli is possible, but honestly, you'll need an x6 thuban oc to 4.0+ to keep up w/ three fermis. I might do it if I can find another gtx 470 on sale (I got both of mine for $260 usd) and good price on a new psu, like the enermax 1050w.

here is the ocn forum on the hack

Has anyone tried a Seagate Momentus XT yet? I was curious about the performance in RAID. The one article I read where the author built an array said the speed was close to SSD, but not quite there. After reading about the issues that people are having adding SSD's to new MB's, I was wondering if this would be a good option. It just seems like the HD's are opening programs too slowly & that all of the other hardware has surpassed them at this time.

I just got this Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC064MAG-1G1 2.5" 64GB SATA III to replace the INTEL V-25 X 2 RAID0 and very happy with the SATA III performance. Only a single drive so TRIM is auto enabled and seem to be faster than the INTEL V-25 X 2 RAID0.
Now I am waiting Amazon to ship my pre-ordered ASUS GTX460 1 GB GDDR5 PCI-Express Graphics Card ENGTX460 DirectCU TOP/2DI/1GD5 - Overclocking Edition

For anyone else who may face problems with the OCZ Revo, I seem to have fixed the problem by disabling the Jmicron sata controller in my BIOS. I will post benchies soon!
