I wasn't having any issues, but I also haven't been gutsy enough to try running RAID on my board. Maybe once this BIOS reaches official status, I'll give it a shot :)

Did you have any better luck with the overclocking yet? I'd be interested to know how you set your bios up.

The official p23 bios has been released and it is recommended whether any issues are experienced or not.

I'm wondering if it actually fixed the SATA problems people were experiencing.:confused:

They say it does, and the complaints seem to be slowing quite a but, but I haven't had troubles-- not using raid, so I can't say first hand.

I started having some SATA problems, but they've cleared up now.

I finally experienced a glitch with the board, even with the p23 bios. My wife was using the computer and pressed one of those specialty buttons along the top of the keyboard, and it crashed and wouldn't reboot- (ps2 mouse error) and it would no longer detect my hard drive. I panicked a little at first but i just reset my bios to default settings and it rebooted.
