ok im getting quite pissed right now...
i noticed that over the last few weeks Windows 7 was getting corrupted (random BSODs) so i reistalled it. the problem is that it take about 15 mins to reach the panel where you choose your language and another 15 mins to reach the place where you choose partitions... and it always crashes before...
without any reason (blackscreen and restart)
i managed to install it, and it gave me random errors in less than a week
re-installed it, same thing happenned but in three days and dont even let me log in:swearing::swearing:

my hard drives were formatted every time...
i didnt even had enough time to install more than two games and the most basic softwares!

waiting for your comments...

ps: i tried at different OCs, at stock, and at various known stable OCs...

a few things here. Check your SMART data to make sure your Hard Drives aren't throwing up any red flags. Very unlikely for a RAID 0 setup, but you never know. Second, try installing from a different disc.

i just deleted the RAID volume and created it back
im going to flash my bios and try reinstalling again

edit: interesting... after flashing the BIOS the stock Vcore of my I7 went from 1,18-1,22V to
1,14V...

it was almost finished but it was stuck on "installing updates" so i powered it off

also a strange issue:
when i choose the partition and click "next" it kind of skip the step "copying windows files" and goes immediately to "expand windows files" but these files are not copied so it generates an error
"files are corrupt"

ok i managed to install it
here's how i did it:

my RAID0 drives were on the Intel ICH10R chipset
i just installed a RAID setup using the Gigabyte RAID controller (onboard)

consequences:
my burst rate will be a bit slower, but its better than having a useless comp
