No definitely let me know. Ask away.

I was a total noob with this board too, and I took days tweaking everything and now, this is the best board ever

I have been keeping my formula at 3.7 for my 950, the "crazy" dummie proof setting LOL. Kinda want to throw an SSD to make this monster really do what it capable of. Everyone who has an SSD praises them over HDD raid. Does this board do well with SSD in sata 6. Or does it matter? I have been looking at this one :

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148348

I just bought these 2 samsungs iin my system specs, they do OK but man I feel such a bottleneck loading win 7 and games. This board should be unleashing the power? Just want an opiniun, to know what others are using. Thanks!

i just put an SSD in mine. it's freaking FAST.

you can put your F3s in RAID0 for storage, so you have fast OS and storage.

According to Supershanks over at clunk.org and their Asus Rampage III Formula Living Review the Marvell SATA 6 GB/s isn´t that great compare to Intel SATA 3 GB/s, check it out here

Well I have been told before sata II is nearly as fast as sata III. I just wonder what the fix is? Bios update? I guess sata III is just a light year ahead of itself in therory. But theres just not much difference between the two in price.

I just know my HDDs are my bottleneck. And figure 120 to 128 gig SSD will do my needs well, I just need to figure if I can keep these 2 samsungs in raid 0 for storage. And which SSD ?

Man I have about $1600 in this system now. "Drained me ole piggy bank"

Its just such a loss to have a new rig like this to be bottled necked.
