    Setting up Raid.. Does it matter what sata ports I use?

    keep im mind this onchip raid solution on desktop motherboards is software assisted. While the controller supports "hardware" raid, its software assisted. For complete OS independant youd need an actual raid controller.

    haha well this one wont fit in a regular atx, nor extended case. this one has 16DIMM banks, so it required an extra 2 inches above the I/O backplane. I had to buy the supermicro case to hold it.

    For too long AMD was shoving the superiority of the Athlon XP in the face of the P4. You can only provoke a big dog so much before it gets up and bites your ass, and well, AMD got mauled. Story of David and Goliath. Real world spoiler, David loses.
