Default 790i problems???

Whew, been along time since I've been online, and thats because of a problem I had with my new system build. That brings me to my question. I was wanting to know if anyone who may have either the ASUS Striker II Extreme, or EVGA, XFX, 790i board and was experiecing the same problems as I was. In any game I ean in Vista, I could only play for a few minutes and it would crash to a BSOD. This went on for a long time, and being that it was a new chip, there wasn't alot of info on what might have been the cause. What I do know is that I had read of a problem that was happening with Nvidia SATA drivers causing SATA optical drives to not work, or out right disappear. I had SATA Optical drives, but the worked fine, or so I thought. So just for s**ts and giggles I swaped out the SATA opticals and went IDE. Bam! System was stable as a rock. In fact got it to hit 20064 3DMark in Vista. Did anyone else experience this?

The problem I was having was directly related to SATA optical drives. SATA hard drives were not the problem. Only the CD/DVD drives. So when I switched out to old school IDE my problem went away.
