This way you can try them if you want to at a later date.

Your Marvel drivers were for AHCI and the BIOS was likely set to IDE, this caused the crash.
I have used the method you did before with Intel drivers and it worked, most other mother boards won't allow this.
Best to set all of them to AHCI before installing the OS.

Let us know how the re-install went.
Nah. I moved my SSD to the Intel controller (SATA 3Gb/s - my SSD is not SATA 6Gb/s) where my CD/DVD drive was and put the Opti. drive on the Marvell 6Gb/s. Works like a charm.

I've had a look at some images of Clevo/Sager laptops, and whilst looking rather bulky, it's perfectly understandable why! If a friend with a MacBook Air came along boasting how thin it was, you'd instantly win by saying "Who cares about the size? This is probably more powerful than you desktop PC and makes the MacBook Air specs look like a pocket pc from 2002" anyway...

Just wondering, what's the battery life like?
(I know it's clichéd, but when I was asking a friend about whether I should buy an i7 laptop, he said the battery would last a few seconds :P)

just got a new msi gt683dxr with an i7. it doesn't have as beefy as an i7 as 990 but its at idle saying about 3 1/2 hours so with good use 2 hours i'd guess anything intense less than an hour :P

hehhe has me beat in wei but only by a few points (posted a few back anywho)

well, that's a better battery life than mine (it dies within 5 minutes as the battery is knackered ) I guess that is pretty good usage... well, I'd be pleased with battery life like that

RevoDrive 3 X2 sure helped my WEI in my new build. Now onto more serious CPU overclocking. 5.0 MHz gives me a 7.8 for processor. Does anyone know what speeds would give a CPU 7.9? Is it even worth trying for?

I don't believe a 7.9 has been acheived without extreme cooling. IMHO it's not worth torturing your CPU for a number that has dubious value. Enjoy your system

7.9 is not possible with the CPU's out today. The only CPU that scored 7.9 I've seen, they were pouring liquid nitrogen in.

I don't think it will make any difference to computer performance. Its more about bragging rights

I guess so, as even MS admit that it's just for bragging rights with the Vista WEI Quest for the perfect score: Reach for the top of the Windows Experience Index
