I'll give it a shot when I get everything configured and let you know how well it handles the -bigadv. I've always wanted to try one of those.

I can't find anything to let me do it with this board yet, but there may be some voodoo magic that let's me get somewhere with it.

I hope you're putting it in your basement because the fan noise will drive you batty! They are NOT quiet.
It does look like it's on a riser slot, but when I tried to remove it before it gave me a lot of resistance. I'll try again, but I'll still need to find some card->sata cables. The cable it's got now is designed for the server. Hopefully I can make it work for me (in a different machine that is).

Yeah, there's a decent amount of value in that RAM, but I'm greedy
