Is ASUS PC Probe II the only option to monitor northbridge and southbridge temps while in Windows for this mobo? I'm trying to find a good temp monitoring solution that can run in the background and look decent if it's the only thing shown on the desktop.

I just get off RAID 0 of the the INTEL X-25 V, I don't see any advantages in actual performance on RAID. And it's doesn't support TRIM. So I get the Crucial REALSSD instead and take advantage of SATA III built in on this Crosshair IV. I feel that it's faster than the INTEL RAID0 I have previously!

This is why I was thinking about the OCZ Revodrive.

Sounds like it would be a pretty sweet build.

The only thing I can nit-pick from that list is the CPU cooler. Reason being...there's MANY other coolers out there for about the same price or cheaper, that have been out longer and therefore have more reviews, that will offer the same or better results. To be fair, I don't know much about the v6 GT and it may be a great cooler...but I lean more towards tried-and-true coolers. With that said, I run an H50.

Fixed. If you want a solid cooler go with the Stock AMD Cooler or go H50.

My CPU is lapped and I found that my Core temp was reduced 20c and could run my stock cooler with a 39c temp average. Prior to lapping I was running 59c.

With my H50 I run between 29-34c at or slightly over idle speeds.

if you want you can wait for the 95w versions of the x6
you might also consider the seasonic/corsair (seasonic units) 80+ gold units instead of the silver
