I have a Athlon 64 3400+
MSI K8N Neo Platinum
1GB ram (512mb x 2 Giel Golden Dragon PC3500 Cas2 3-3-3-6)
Radeon 9700 Pro

Adaptec 29320A-R SCSI RAID CONTROLLER
4 10k rpm 74gig IBM Ultrastar U160 SCSI Drives in raid 0
1 15k rpm 18gig Segate Cheetah X15 36lp
Pioneer 105S SCSI DVDROM
Koolance PC601BW Case
Antec True Control 550 Power Supply.
All 5 hard disks are in an external enclosure with dedicated 300 watt power supply
System is not overclocked (yet)
All IDE Controllers are OFF
Onboard Sound is OFF
Problem Number 1.
With the Adaptec controller in raid mode, loading the raid driver. Only two cards in the system are the video card and the Adaptec Raid Controller. If the raid has been freshly built I can partion and format the raid array and it will copy the windows files to it. When the computer reboots for the first time i get a drive read error. (drives work fine in another system in raid and fine on this system out of raid). If i try to install the system again without deleting and rebuilding the raid i get a blue screen the first time the windows install goes to starting windows before you press F8 to agree.
Problem Number 2.
I turned off raid on the Adaptec Controllers Bios and used the non raid driver to install windows. I then put the sound card and the Adaptec card in any available combination of remaining slots and when windows loads up it immediatly reboots.
I am seriously considering returning this motherboard and getting a different one that may have less compatibility problems with my hardware configuration.
