I need a little more OC, but Win 7 doesn't inable my USB keyboard until after it's passed the Bios enter screen, so until I get a regulay keyboard, I'm locked out of Bios.
can you get hold of a PS2 keyboard? there will more than likely be a setting somewhere in the bios 'usb keyboard support' or something along those lines, hopefully if there is and you enable it it may fix your issue. i know both my 790i boards have that setting somewhere in them.

Nothing to do with Win 7.. It's USB Legacy Support in the BIOS.

what do you have to do for 7.9 crossfire?
and would have thought a 150gb velociraptor would have done better too
unfortunately the highest you are going to get on a velociraptor is 5.9. i have the 300gig and that is as high as i get. one user has theirs at 6.3. their wei is hacked to get that.
Not really all you have to do is disable write caching on the drive while doing the test. Not only did it increase my disk drive score from 5.9 to 6.2 it also helped my other score a bit. (In real life you need the caching on.) It show you how screwed up these artificial scores are.

if you need the write caching in day to day use then the 6.2 score is a cheat. the idea of benchmarking is to see how a system will behave in normal day to day use.

which is why i said to get a ps2 (old round style plug) k/b to gain access to the bios, from there there should be a setting somewhere to enable USB K/B support, they usually also have a setting to enable USB mouse support as well. my old Asus 680i mobo had the same problem, but once i set that setting to enable it was fine with a usb k/b.

this is how i set up my o/s hdd, i always have set it up like this. the only problem is, is if your system is unstable and it crashes, you lose data.

other than that, there isnt a huge performance increase. it is more to do with command queuing for performance.

I was looking at this today on my system.

Do you happen to know if it can cause data loss on the drive itself...meaning previously already written good data? Like can it destroy an mp3 collection, let's say, for, instance?

A week ago I would have thought the same thing, For the last year I've been able to get into Bios, I have to watch the Keybord and mouse they have lights on them , as soon as I see the light flash I press deleat, the mother board beeps and the system goes into Bios, I've done that with Vista, and several RC versions, on the 3rd, I added two SSD's ( Intel X25-M ( Raid 0 )) and The ofical Win 7, Ultamate Full version, that is all I have changed, and now I cant get into Bios, the Mother board beeps before the lights flash on the Keyboard, so either the Win 7 Install, or the SSD's changed something enough so that I can not press delete fast enough. I guess I should have suspected the SSD's and not Win 7.
