Has anyone lapped a sandy bridge yet?

Don't use the dark blue connectors for your HDDs unless you have to, (ie. setting up two different RAIDS). The HDDs on the Marvel controller will be very slow by comparison.

Then follow grunion's post by pressing as the computer boots to enter the Intel RAID ROM. Configure the drives the way you want, (ie the C300 as a non member disk), the the 4- TB drives the way you want. If you are going to be setting up two different RAID arrays, you will need to have two of the drives in the dark blue Marvel SATA connectors, and configure them through the Marvel BIOS.

Thanks - that seems to be working. I am in the process of initializing the array now, which is taking forever - but hopefully it's usable once it's done.

I started my P8P67 and i2500K up Saturday night. Finally got 1053 bios loaded up yesterday and installed OS and AI Suite (yes, you really have to run the patcher 2 times, I learned). Still getting the double post and occasionally I get a failure to boot saying can't find OS (I assume at some point a bios revision will fix these annoyances).

I have never overclocked so I used the auto-tune extreme function just to see what it would do. It stabilized at 4.5 and I ran Prime95 for about an hour. CPU showed 4530.9MHz and Vcore of1.320. I am happy with that speed (I was originally hoping to see 4.2-4.3) but am a little worried about cpu temp (68.0-70.0) and posted that on another thread and the suggestion seems to be I may have used too much paste on the cooler. Question I have here is whether that Vcore seems a little high for 4.5? Looks like others are getting to 4.5 at around 1.2.

That temp is fine.
The CPU throttles back at around 95c, so you have plenty of room.
You may see people commenting about Tcase is around 72c. That is the temp of the CASE, not the CPU (which is the temp you are reading).

The Vcore is maybe a little high - although chips differ in capability, but not high enough that you should worry about! If you want you can try to optimize it, but it really won't make any difference.

Also, be careful about comparing apples to apples. Some people get 4.5 with HT off at 1.2, which is possible. Turning HT on may bump that to 1.3

Seems that the issue with sleep/hibernate is linked to having Internal PLL Overvoltage enabled but Intel and Asus are working on a solution.

Thanks Gooddog. So, if you are me and you built this for video editing (not professionally, but for doing weekly game film breakdown for youth football teams) a few hours a week, plus a play a game or two here and there, do you disassemble and re-do the paste? I cannot believe that would make a 5 degree C difference, but if so I am willing to do it.

Absolutely NOT. You may get 1-2c...but it doesn't really matter. It is usually a pain that ain't worth it.

Do you have HT on (that is useful depending on the video editing s/w you got)?

You won't hit that level of temps anyway with any games and rarely with video editing.

for KChase... i have the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe. Very Very good board... OC is (practically) fully automated. I say practically, because you are still required to make certain choices, but things like voltage control, timengs etc are all done "for you" if you so choose.... and the BIOS GUI is super sweet... I recommend this board... BTW... got my 2600K to 4.8 on air.... don't know how far I can push it... and now that I fell in love with the whole system... I don't want to push it.... So I backed her back down to 45 multiplier and 103.0 BCLK... running like a champ.... never gets past 60 Celcius under full load... cooler is Zalman CNPS9700
