It's killing me to leave 2 - 6.0's sitting idle lol. Yeah I will eventually run 2 of the 6950/6970. Not right away though. Thats why I went with the 1000 W power. Thanks!
Personally I think that a higher PSU wattage is a good investment especially if you are planning on upgrading your rig. Also you can always keep it for another more power hungry rig down the line - 1 less thing to buy.

I'm not sure what kind of performance gain you'll get from having 2 in RAID 0, but I think it's a solution in search of a problem. SSDs are already really fast. You might consider just 1 SSD for now (particularly if its just for OS), and either save the money for future builds or put it toward a second GPU, bigger monitor, gaming accessories, etc...

Just my $0.02.
Thank You OCN!

You can RAID the C300 it is just the reviews say you don't want to RAID on the SATA 6 or SATA III marvell controller.

Quote:
The following results show two tests of a RAID setup on the Marvell controller. As you can see results are dismal with either method results are not up to par with what you would expect from a RAID array, both are well below speeds of what you would get doubling a single drives speeds, and sequential read speeds aside both results are in the SATA 3GB/s range. Also please note, as mentioned above when using the Marvell Controller and Marvell driver in the short comparison results, drives are dropped from the array often. The tests using the Marvell driver had to be ran several times in order to get a finished result with all three benchmarks on the screen at the same time, without the array dropping out causing the system to need rebooted in order to continue further tests. Needless to say, RAID on the Marvell controller is not ideal or suggested with solid state drives.

The only problem with it is that some people don't like the green fan :/. There is also another XFX 750 with a grey fan. The only difference is that the grey fan XFX 750 is not modular while the green fan is.
I must be weird. I love the green. Adding that to the list. The Corsair mem you mentioned above isn't on the compatible mem list for that board.

Getting 1000 watts is not a good investment. You're power supply will not be under a sufficient load to run efficiently. If getting a high wattage power supply was a good investment then everyone would be walking around with 1500 watt Silverstone striders and Corsair AX1200.

I could just use the C300 in a 6.0 slot instead of a raid 0 for the 2 F60's. That might be the best and safest way to go. Should still be super fast. I can always add another C300 later if I want to put a specific app on it. Thanks!

I just don't see the purpose in this. You will already have 120gb of SSD space. Windows only needs ~25g-30gb and you can put whatever apps on there as well. IMO go with either one SSD or the other and RAID 0 it. Also just because the RAM is not on the QVL list does not mean that it won't work.

Where does it say it isn't compatible??
In the board manual. They have a list of all compatible mem. Now that's not to say it hasn't been updated. I went to the ASUS site and looked at it there too.
Not sure if this link will work but here it is.

Are you planning on overclocking?

If no, the Noctua D14 is overkill. You can save some money by going for a Xigmatek Dark Knight, which is still OC-friendly up to around 4GHz.

If yes, you might look into ditching the i7 960 for a 930 or a 950 if cheaper. You'll hit the same clocks since you're limited by your cooling anyways. The Noctua D14 is a solid choice in this case.

It doesn't matter if the memory is not in the list. RAM is RAM. As long as you don't try shoving DDR3 in a DDR2 socket, or raise the voltage up to 2v, you'll be fine.

I looked up the QVL list as well. The QVL stands for qualified vendors list therefore this does not mean all other memories are not compatible. My suggestion is to just not go for Corsair Dominators as they are over priced 99% of the time. For example I just looked up about 6 of those rams and they aren't even available on Newegg.

[Edit]
In response to aznofazns I agree but I was assuming that he would be overclocking. Personally if he wasn't overclocking I would suggest getting a Hyper 212+ which is really cheap but is a great cooler for the price. It will easily cool that CPU.

My original plan was to do just that, raid 0 the 2 F60's and be done with it. Then I read about the C300's 6.0 GB/s and had second thoughts. Then I just more or less wanted to use the C300 just because. lol, no real reason to have it...just wanted it. Of course leaving the 2 F60's as is.

I agree....I'm just a nervous nelly and don't want to run into issues and then have to keep bugging people for help. I'm sure their first response would be "ITS NOT ON THE LIST". I'm sure it would be fine though.
