Does that card work on UEFI bios? I have had nothing but troble with Adaptec controlers.
BTW, I don't have a card as of yet.
And you will never believe what I woke up to this morning, a leak in the water cooling on of all things the water block. I don't know if the water reached the CPU or MoBo, but the MoBo is throwing an error and I can't turn it on. This pisses me off, b/c I have tested the system for at least 200 hours before installing. I was running prime95 and the CPU was getting pretty hot on a 4.8g overclock and I think the hose has expanded and leaked.
