It will be a very tight fit.
So, watch your temps on all the cards especially the top video card

Hey guys,
I just upgraded to this card from the P6T and the board can't detect 2 of my HDDs. I've tried directly connecting them into the SATA ports and direct feed from PSU but no avail.

My Patriot SSD and the WD raptor work just fine. Any idea how to get them working? Cabling?

Got a little bored with my AMD 1090T, so back to Intel. I just got this motherboard, along with an I7-950. Haven't oc'd anything yet. CoreTemp shows temps ranging from 33-39 celcius @ idle and CPU-Z shows 1.2v.....is this normal?

Quick question! What triple channel kits is everyone using? I'm looking to get a 6GB kit. Any suggestions?

Yeah I would like some suggestions for that too. Is it worth it to get the DDR 2000 (PC3 16000) kit or can you easily overclock a quality set of DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) modules?

Might wanna try disabling that 6Gb SATA in the BIOS first to see if it'll pick up your other 2 HDDs. I think I've seen a few people mentioned having some problem with the 6Gb SATA ports.

I'm running Dominator-GT DDR3 1600 Cas 7 at 1800 without any issue. These Dominators can OC quite well and that's what I usually recommend.

It just a matter of personal preferences really. Although I've been reading some good things about this TP-Link card (plus it's only 30 bucks).

I just upgraded to the R3F from the P6TD V1, really love the aesthetics of this board along with it's many features, even though I probably won't fully utilise many of them.

I've got 4 HDD's at the moment, an OCZ Vertex 2 SSD as OS drive. a Seagate Barracuda ST32000641AS 2TB SATA3, a Seagate 1TB SATA2 and 500GB SATA2. All HDD's were detected and working well. I've got the SSD, 1TB and 500GB drives hooked up to the SATA2 ports and the 2TB on the Marvell SATA3 port. Also I set a couple of options in bios:

Main -> Storage Configuration -> Configure SATA as 'AHCI'
Advanced -> Onboard Device Configuration -> Onboard SATA6G Controller: AHCI

Also I disabled the "Onboard SATA controller" as that's the JMicron JB36X controller and I haven't noticed any difference disabling it except for it got rid of the JMicron screen on bootup.
