Question  raid setup a pain in neck by dave scott

Dear sirs i recently purchased a Asus M4A87TD/USB3 AMD 870 (Socket AM3) DDR3 PCI-Express Motherboard .as well as 3 hard drives all samsung 2 tb spinpoints when setting up raid array and installing windows 7 ultimate unable to do so as windows cannot set up about 3/4 off the way through any advise gladly accepted thanks in advance processor is amd 4 athlon (tm)11 x4 635 2.9 ghz want to set up as raid 05 if possible thank you

Answer by andrewn on Sunday, May 15, 2011
Please give our customer services team a call for specific advice. Personally I'd strongly recommend going with RAID-1 rather than RAID-5 though; RAID-5 is a bit of a legacy from the days when HDDs were expensive and it was important to provide redundancy while making the most of relatively expensive hard drives. Nowadays, especially for home or small business use, the increased complexity means that you are really much better off with RAID-1.

Missinformation by Mike

In the response to PaD it was said that if he wanted to run crossfire the PSU would be fine for two graphics cards which is probably acurate

However, the motherboard isnt, it only has 1xpciex16 slot so he (or she) would need a different motherboard to run an SLi system

Response by philm
It is the Evo version of this board that does support SLI.

Question  Will this mobo support by Oscar

a EVGA Geforce 8800GTX? Its old I know but I am reluctant to spend more than I need.

Answer by andrewn on Tuesday, April 26, 2011
Should work fine. Basically any PCI-E graphics card should work.

Question  dimensions please by bob

can someone please tell the exact dimensions of the board ( in case the case I plan to buy is too small )thanks!

Answer by andrewn on Friday, April 22, 2011
Standard ATX form factor, 30.5 cm x 21.3 cm.

Question  Compability by Dave

Would this 37252 be compatible with this motherboard together with Win 7x62bit?

Please answer


Answer by philm on Tuesday, March 15, 2011
