My System Specs

Smile Core i7 Extreme Upgrade

Well I don't know if this is the thread where I posted some pics of my upgrade, there r no pics now....

Anyway, ended up sending the 3970x back and got a 3960x instead. After 1st bootup attempt nfg. Another cpu, nfg.

Another board, nfg. Disassembled the whole system and re installed piece by piece. Finally got somewhere.

Now I'm trying to install Win7 on 2 SSDs in raid 0. It goes to 6%... Reboot, gets to 82%.

Remove 1 SSD, the refurbed, loads up np.

Try to go raid 0 using windows,it says to re install windows....?


Try loading windows on other SSD, doesn't even show up, yet was there in raid config earlier and it shows

up when single SSD OS set 4 windows?????

So now I'm going to try that drive again as it's the only 1 plugged in and it shows in the bios.. nfg.

Bad SSD maybe....

Maybe time to flash the bios. On this board it's so freakin easy!

Still only showing 12gbs of ram instead of 16.

Hopefully the flash will help.
