Windows 7: RAID 1+0 instability + BSODs

RAID 1+0 instability + BSODs

SO, i am up to my eyeballs here at school. i finally get some free time and think "PERFECT! Now i can set up my super cool raid 10 array giving me 1TB if storage accross 4 500 GB brand new Seagates which i sment a large portion of my savings on."

Well i was quite wrong. Initial setup was easy enough, but during the windows install, i got a message that said something to the tune of "Your computer restarted unexpectedly during install blah blah blah its broken."

Wiped the drives. Re-made the RAID Array. The install worked. I got about 20 min in to setting up my programs and whatnot. Update asked fro a restart, so i did. BSOD on boot. Startup repair. Let it do its thing, im back into windows. MOre messing around. Restart, login and i got a bunch of funny error messages from several different programs. "Cant find importantfile.dll" "Something really bad happened" "Ive got bad news for you" The list goes on.


SO. Can anyone help me? Im currently rinning SeaTools off of Hiren's boot CD and wiping all the drives individually.

Heres my build:
GIGABYTE EP45-UD3R
Seagate Barracuda 500 GB 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB HDD x4

You seem to have the matter well in hand we could really use the actual dmp file. can you use these to find and upload it?

So the good news is, i was fidgeting with my BIOS, and it automatically sets your RAM to Turbo mode by default, so i turned that down, and set the Ram voltage to 1.900v instead of 1.800v which is what the mobo auto detects. The 1.900v was specified by the manufacturer Corsair. Windows installed fine, and everything seems to be okay. Now i just have to figure out my network problems
