At least in my experience the 990FX is incompatible with the internal controller from Samsung 830 SSD when used in Raid. Every time you stress the Raid a disk goes south and is missing, 5 seconds and BSOD, most of the time the screens is like a chess board. Endless corruption. I changed sata cables, even bought a new CFVZ to test and the same problem. Then installed Windows on a normal HDD and tested the raid as secondary drive. and all king of missing disk, disk gone wild errors in Event Log appeared. Now I have a very big collection of sata cables wink.gif The samsungs 830 out of raid present no problem with the CFVZ. I searched the internerd and found that everyone trying to use Raid with Samsung 830 and 990FX has the same problems, not only Asus Mobos, Gigabyte too. With WD Green, WD Black (old ones), WD Red not a problem with Raid and 990FX. I changed the samsungs for Corsairs Neutron GTX and tested them in Raid without problems for 2 months. Not in Raid at the moment.

The controllers on SSDs are much much more sophisticated than spinners, so it's not surprising. I assume since you've done research you know there isn't a newer firmware update that possibly resolves incompatibility with the AMD chipset. I can tell you of a long battle I had with OCZ where their 3 series drives wouldn't work with Nvidia's 590 chipset in SATA-2 mode. They did come through to their credit.

keeping in mind, I'm in AU (higher ambient temps and temp range), my crosshair sits rotated compared to the average chasis, the cables needed to be 50-60cm long and I [had] a DCIIT which would blow hot air directly on the connectors under load, so this would be the absolute worst case scenario for SATA cables.
unfortunately no, I haven't upgraded to 2400 yet tongue.gif

Sorry to hear about your problems with cables, mate. I've never had a problem with any SATA cable. Hope your case is out of the norm. Also, the 90 degree connectors are no issue on my SSDs, probably because the spacing between adjacent drives is sufficient. If anything, unclipping the cables is a PITA due to tight quarters.

Now, I've heard in the past about the CHV boards, the first release ones, some having an issue with the BIOS chip. I did order a new updated BIOS chip to be on the safe side, but just curious as to whether or not all of the early CHV boards were effected but not properly working with the FX cpu's, like the 8350 I have on the way. My board does have the 0404 on the sticker next to the 24-pin connector. And I am updated with the 1703 BIOS. Is there a chance I will not need the new updated BIOS chip when I get it? I did want to cover all the bases just in case I do have an issue with this and ordered the BIOS chip at the same time.

Thanks for any input on this.. thumb.gif

You were over on the M2N32 thread, right? Welcome!

This board is every bit as fun as the M2N32 and then some.

I don't think it was ever said why the original BIOS chips needed to be recalled, so I can't offer any help there. But as others said, since you made it all the way up, I see no reason you shouldn't be good to go unless the settings you apply in BIOS don't stick or the results are inconsistent with other monitoring tools.

Man it sounds like everyone is having one of those nights.
I've been sitting here trying to do a mock up of a CL TX10-V
and its just almost impossible without knowing the dimensions
of the upper and lower areas. guess tomorrow I'll
have to call them and get some measurements. ah well.

Since you had to relax the timings to get the higher frequency, I suspect performance is a wash. Did you do any benchmark testing to see either way?

I've never really enjoyed overclocking RAM. Too frustrating and tedious.

I hate messing with ram, frustration x10.
I need to but a good memory benchmarking program maxxmem is pretty awful.

Hard to say what was better ,so yes a wash.

hey guys I got a question what do you think would work out better
I've got an idea for a 2 system build But, The ideas I have for a case
or cases I'm having an issue with mainly because of the graphic designs
on the case. If I go with a TX10-D I can only use a single paint scheme and
have the 2 windows engraved one with each image. If I go with the TX10-V
I can have the the windows each etched and the otherside airbrushed with
a color image of the window etch.

Any thoughts?
