    Default Crossfire installation on ASRock X79 Extreme4

    My board is actually en route from Newegg, so my questions may be premature.

    1) Per the instructions, two graphics cards in crossfire would be installed into the pcie slot 1 and slot 3, but oddly there is no extended crossfire bridge shown to be included. What is the solution since slot 1 and 3 are more separated than a traditional configuration supported by a normal length crossfire bridge?

    2) Pcie slot 3 and slot 4 are spaced for a traditional length crossfire bridge, but will they run at x16 x16 electrical in a two card configuration? This would avoid the extended crossfire bridge problem, I assume.

    Thanks.

    How do you confirm the closest slots are running at x16, x16 electrical?

    Make sure that you spend a little more and buy an ssd that uses synchronous NAND memory.

    i would read this thread too,it lists all the ssd's that use superior synchronous nand,and its up to date

    SSD Reviews Thread - Storage Forums

    basically all of these

    SandForce SF-2281 with 25nm Synchronous NAND
    ADATA S511
    Corsair Force Series GT
    Kingston HyperX
    MemoRight FTM Plus
    OCZ Vertex 3
    OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G
    Patriot Pyro SE
    Silicon Power V30
    Super Talent TeraDrive PT3

    theres the crucial m4 too which is in an unlabelled section but it uses synchronous nand memory

    Oh. That looks like a big deal. I was zeroing in on two OCZ Agility 3's for a RAID 0 configuration by coincidence, but that was sheer luck they were synchronous. Good to know what I'm looking for. Two weeks 'til payday. I'm hoping to break the sound barrier with those two on SATA III ports in RAID. Kiss the hard drive bottleneck goodbye. Happy days.

    the agility 3 uses asynchronous,its not so good,vertex 3 use synchronous nand which is better
