BIOS Setup:

Had v.1007, updated to 1011. Hyper Threading enabled, ACPI 2.0 Support, ACPI APIC Support, and BIOS->AML ACPI Table. RAID is enabled, USB to HiSpeed. In Boot- Disk array is first, Sony CDROM second, Legacy floppy third Almost all other settings are defaulted.

O/S: Windows XP Professional with SP1a. RAID formatted as NTFS. RAID is partitioned 12 ways: O/S is on the 10GB part (C), remaining partitions are 20GB each.
Intended as a development/gaming workstation.

I'm thrilled with the Xaser III case - it's quieter than my old box with two fans. This box has been rock solid since the build/OS install.

1. XP wouldn't recognize RAID on install. Tried all patches from ASUS site to no avail. Finally tried the make disk utility on the support CD (which has problems playing in all of my CD-ROM drives) in the FastTrack 378 RAID folder. Once I did this, XP immediately recognized the array and took off on the install.
