Now this is a totally too stupid for words question and I am really embarrassed to ask it. Additionally, I am ashamed because I have no choice but to RAID array my 2 80 GB Intel X25M SSD's.

Now according to 4.4.3 of the Crosshair V manual (page 4-39), I must set SATA 1-4 to RAID in the BIOS. Not at all difficult.

Problems:

1) I think RAID is only for fools, drunks and people who need a time-consuming hobby.

In short, I do not wish to use RAID except to salvage my Intel X25M SSD's which at 80 GB are way too small if they are not conjoined. And RAID 0 seems to be the only way to do that. Plus I only need RAID on SATA 1-2 but must set the BIOS to RAID for SATA 1-4.

2) So what happens to my SATA 3-4 ports if I want to use AHCI or traditional HDD's?

Every chip is different - some just can't make it to 4GHZ without insane voltage. Try overclocking with a higher FSB, rather than just relying on the multiplier. I've found that mine was much more stable using that method with less voltage. 250x16 was a solid good combo for 4GHZ on my chip. What are your other settings at?

You definitely need to:

Re-apply TIM AND/OR Better cooling AND/OR Better airflow in your case.

If you like at Walgreen for cleaning up thermo paste get some 91% alcohol, a soft tooth brush, and some Q-tips

If you set SATA 1-4 to raid and then set SATA 1, 2 to raid 0 for your SSD's then SATA 3, 4 will default to AHCI unless you set them to raid
If you have optic drives they should be in SATA 5 and/or 6 and set to IDE

RAID is the fastest thing available at this time that why all new motherboard have raid as an option

Ports 3-4 will run in RAID mode or Non-RAID mode, either way it doesn't matter. Modern SATA controllers allow lone HDDs to work perfectly fine in RAID mode next to RAID SSDs or visa versa.

So I reapplied the thermal paste, did a much better job this time... Gonna test soon...

New question: I was using a dongle (DVI to Mini-displayport) on my main monitor, I decided to just use the DVI, now my UEFI bios is all garbled and really low res, how do I fix this?

my guess would be to reset the bios with button on back
