  3. GA-X58-UD3R -> http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/276715-30-x58a-ud3r-raid-bsod-disk-boot-failure
    Otherwise Google { GA-X58-UD3R +RAID +BSOD} ; this too happens w/o RAID when paired to an SSD + HDD. Worst was the {Rev 1} which simply an SSD would cause the MOBO to fail, the latest BIOS literally 'slows down' the SSD to keep the MOBO stable - yeah just want everyone wants ;)

    The RAM posted above works great with the ASUS P6X58D-E and it's a terrific MOBO.
