Hopefully the temporary lock on the thread will have deterred the haters.
Yep, updating the first post right now.
I was always thinking of having the first part of my Username be ark instead of akr, everyone always sees it as that . (akr are my initials) I guess it does sound cool though... Anyway, I'm continuing to work on the build slowly but surely.
UPDATE: When we left off a week or so ago, I was installing 5 OCZ Vertex 3 SSD's into the RAID Card. Initially I had some major issues with the RAID card firmware, and to top it off one of the SSD's turned out to be DOA. It took me a long time to figure out which one it was too, as they all appeared to be normal. I spent a few hours messing with different firmware revisions and settings in the RAID card, but luckily everything turned out to work out very well. Here is a pic of the 4 OCZ Vertex 3 SSD's in RAID 0 on the Intel RS2BL080DE RAID Card:
