Harddrives? Anything 3.5" harddisk will do. And I mean it; ANY harddrive. Also ANY SSDs.

Notes: nvm, but.. Can you change your avatar pls?

It will support 7 SATA 2.0 devices, and 2 SATA 3.0 devices. Optical disks, 2.5' HDs, 3.5" HDs.

ATM you will want 3.5" Sata 2.0 hard drives.

Since you got a Rampage III I am guessing you want fast hard drives? Get an SSD as primary boot drive if you can afford it. Something like the OCZ Vertex 2 or the GSkill Phoenix.Then get a mechanical backup drive like the Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB. It has been on sale for $54 and is a great drive that is fast and reliable.

From anort3; SSD is more expensive, has much less space but is far more quickly than SATAII harddisk. So it's our choice.
