Well as i stated in my original post i was trying to put SAS drives in the system. I still may in the future when i can invest in a 12gbps SAS controller. the one i purchased is in need of a bios flash and i had to make some bios changes that i didnt like to get the card to come up. Before some one asks why sas drives. I just happen to own a bunch of them and wanted to make use of them. So i took all the parts out that i had added and put in a second 3.5 rotational and we are off to the gaming that i bought this for.
Next upgrade will be a nicer monitor.
