Windows 7: How is my build?

Can I also use RAID 10 on these and also can I use RAIDs on the ASMEDIA SATA ports too?

Plus thanks for the thorough explanation, if there was a thanks button, I'd press it.
You can use RAID 10 but you won't gain much. Most of the advantage of an SSD is faster boot times. Data reads and writes with an SSD are faster but not all that much compared to the faster HDDs. When you run RAID, boot times will be reduced because the RAID has to be initialized. Also, the SATA ports will cap the top speed available from a RAID and SSDs are pushing those speeds already so the only thing you would gain from RAID 10 is more capacity with some redundancy at the cost of reliability. You would be better off using the extra SSDs as external drives for making proper backups (read my sig) or saving a choice chunk of change and buying HDDs instead for the backups.

I doubt it.

Extended ATX motherboards typically require an extended ATX case.

That motherboard is 12 inches by 10.7 inches. Standard ATX boards are about 12 inches by 9 inches

The Newegg specs for the case say it is compatible with ATX and Micro ATX.

You'd probably need a case like the Corsair 900D or Rosewill Thor V2.

@ Ghostk1d


A very simple search on Google can furnish you with a wealth of knowledge!

The answer is no.

You can't always go by the product description to determine if an e-ATX board will fit. Neither my Antec Two Hundred v2 nor my Corsair 650D are rated for extended ATX but both will still take an extended ATX board. The Antec is pretty crowded but it works (and has been for the past year and a half). The 650D will be less crowded.

However, in the case of the Zalman case, it will not fit.

Remember when you buy a motherboard and a case that are not designed to be used together you could have motherboard stand off problems.
If you are going to buy a extended motherboard just buy a case designed for it's use.
It makes no sense to buy problems.

My apologies ghostk1d. You are correct. It looks like a very tight fit for the cables on the right hand side of the motherboard but yes it obviously fits.
