So I loaded windows onto a Revodrive 3, having performance issues... ill check that out later, but my 300GB raptor wont show up in my computer but does in device manager. Any thoughts on this one? I do have a back up of my old setup (HDD) and my new (SDD).

It may simply be that Windows has failed to give your raptor a drive a drive-letter, although that usually occurs only with external drives.

Without a drive-letter, Windows cannot display that drive in explorer, but can display it in Disk Management & Device Manager, neither of which rely on the presence of a drive-letter.

Open Disk Management and find the horizontal ribbon in the bottom-left pane which relates to your raptor drive (it will probaly be shown as "Raw". Right-click it and choose "Change Drive Letter and Paths", then click "New".
Select a drive-letter from the drop-down alphabet. Click 'OK'.
