If you intend to use the RevoDrive you have to make a visit to the ocz site and see if your motherboard is on the list of compatable motherboards. I have been using the RevoDrives since they came out and have gad good sucess with them. I have used the drives on two Asus boards , the Rampage 111 Extreme and the P6X58-E WS. I am currently using the Revo x2 , however at the moment I am using a Corsair SSD as the boot drive and the Revo as a storage drive and putting all the games and such on it. Because ssd's are not as big as conventional drives they do fill up fast so I wanted to get the best useage from the Revo without filling it up with windows and everything else. I have win 7 64 bit on the Corsair and BF3 on the Revo and it's working out pretty good up to this point. You do get the high speeds from the RevoDrive being on the Pci-e slot , a lot higher than a regular SSD and being on the pci-e slot you don't have to worry about the Marvell controller because it bypasses the sata connection altogether.
