This is what I put together. I'm just really wondering about the RAM, since I've never dealt with DDR3 and the power supply. I'm assuming that even though it's "i7 compatible" that it doesn't matter that I'm using a Quad Core Intel?
The RAM has me confused, because NewEgg lists 2 different types of DDR3 1333 RAM. One as PC-10600 and the other at PC-10666. Also, is DDR3 RAM supposed to be used in groups of 3 DIMMs as opposed to pairs?
The HDD's are going to be in RAID 1 and according to the MOBO manual, it has onboard hardware RAID 1.
