I have build a machine that is meant to run the latest adobe premium software. Its meant to have a lot of grant.
Pretty much this is what I have in my system.
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7 Processor Extreme Edition
A solid state drive that I have installed win7 pro 64bit on.
5 one terabyte WD drive to configure raid 5 to use for storage and access data quickly.
24GB of RAM (it only shows 16 usable)
Use all 24GB of RAm and to create raid 5.
The OS installed correctly plus all my drivers (graphics and sound and all)
1. However the system only says 16GB of usable RAM. Is there anyway of making/tweeking the mobo to see all?
2. Cant seem to configure raid 5 in win 7 or cant create raid5 using the Intel Rapid Storage Technology software either. Considering that the system is really fast it took a day and a half to initialise the disk without much luck.
Am I just barking up the wrong tree or is there any solution(s) out there that can help me achieve my objectives.
Looking forward to any helpful hints or suggestions.
Thanks for the replies..... my bad didnt get the right board as suggested. Looks like there are no solutions for raid5 with current board. Unless there is someone out there who has come up with a solution for raid5, I'll make a raid0 and raid1 configurations instead.
