    Adaptec 6405 and 2 x 128gb OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPs R0

    that seems a little on your seq read and write Here is mine on intel ich10R P8P67 Pro board:

    OCZ Vertex 3 users: How's things going (RAID0, RMA's, ETC)?

    yep, you got it... Only intel H67, P67, Z68 chipset support SATA III...

    Is TRIM overrated?

    well, if you do secure erase for your ssds, you will get 90% of the performance back. first make a image of your system drive then, breakup the raid configuration and then, secure erase the drives. finally setup raid and restore the image to your raid drive...

    OCZ living up to reputation, Vertex 3 BSOD

    Well I felt sorry for you. I have exact same drive in raid 0 as you. However, I have the P8P67 Pro board... My drives still have the 2.02 firmware...never update to 2.06.... So far, I have no problem with them in raid. I like them, it is over 1000MB/s read and nearly 500Mb/write.... If you...

    4GB to 6GB - any noticeable gains?

    Duel channel is better... I will suggest either keep the 4GB of ram, or upgrade to 8GB of 2x Dual channel... you will lose performance when you going from 4G dual channel to 6G single channel...

    Is it safe to OC ram?

    Yes, it is safe. As long as you keep the ram cool and don't exceed the spec voltage. I have my ram overclock from 1600Mhz to 2133Mhz with 1.65v and 9-11-9-27 2T timing (the 2T timing for stability)...

    What RAM is compatible? Old Motherboard...

    Any of the DDR RAM will work:

    as long as you don't overclock the ram, it should be fine. however, take a look at this: 2400Mhz RAM without heatspreader:

    I am glad I can help... Just like my friend, he is a programmer, but he know bare little about hardware...

    which RAM timing is better?

    nice...keep it up...

    tRAS should be >="CAS" + "RAS to CAS Delay" + "RAS Precharge" In your case your CAS = 8, RAS to CAS Delay = 8, RAS Precharge = 8 as well....the sum of all three = 24 which is your tRAS... the tRAS should never be less than the sum of the other three timing....

    Well, as rule of thumb - "DONT MIX MEMORY, UNLESS YOU ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO". Mix memory may give you headache.... The new memory may not run at the lower will match the slower latency... You be better to get the same one as you have right now.

    Corsair Vengeance 1866

    how about relaxing the ram timing and run it at 1.55v... that should do the job... and that is how I found my max ram speed with the relaxing timing... XMS3 DDR3-1600 7-8-7-20 2T 1.65 manufacture spec... I am running it at DDR3-2133 9-11-9-28 1T with 1.65v My ram also works in DDR3-1866...
