    VROC RAID 0 with my 2x 1TB Samsung 970 Pros worked great and easy. All I did was set the CPU Storage configuration to DIMM.2+U.2 for PCIe slot 4. Installed the 2x 1TB Samsung 970 Pros on the DIMM.2 and inserted it into DIMM.2 slot 1. Then in the BIOS the 2 drives showed up under VROC Raid. I selected create RAID, chose RAID 0 and those 2 drives. Then I booted the Windows install from a USB key with the latest IRSTe drivers from Asus site for my MB (it had the install and the F6drivers folder for loading during Windows install). During the windows install I loaded the VROC RAID driver in the F6Drivers folder. It found the RAID 0 drive w/o having to refresh or anything right away unlike the RE6. Then I chose it to install windows on it and bam done (I installed the full IRTSe after windows install from the install folder to get the IRSTe GUI you see). Here is a screen shot of IRSTe showing the RAID 0 boot drive (I disabled the PCH controller BTW):

    I am using the latest BIOS 0411 and I have the STDMOD Intel VROC key installed (not sure if this is needed, but I suspect it is since my drives are Samsung and not Intel, which is why I bought it on Amazon).

    Also I wanted to apologize for knocking the EK 250 RGB reservoir and the leak I had with it. I pulled the reservoir from the loop using the quick disconnects. Removed the compression fitting that was leaking. Replaced he o-ring. Put the compression fitting back on the reservoir. Not a drop of water has leaked since. I need to put more time into solving a problem first before I speak on it.

    Also this build was super fun and the Asus Dominus Extreme is a wicked sick MB, the best in the world hands down bar none. Can't wait to turn off the auto extreme OC and manually OC it. Then bench it. Although I am pleasantly surprised and pleased with the auto extreme OC Asus put on it right away as you can see the clock speed in my CoreTemp pic above. My fans were on very very low speed with those idle temps and the Asus auto extreme OC.

    So with a rig like this one has to get AT&T Fibre 1Gbs service or something comparable:

    Here is how I did the CPU. I first cleaned the block and CPU with isopropyl alcohol 99% (or something close to that, don't have the bottle in front of me). I use Ace Hardware blue shop towels to wipe on/off the alcohol. I took a foam piece from the EK CPU block box and set it down on the ModRight pad on the table (you really should have something like the ModRight pad to work on to be safe). I clipped the CPU into the CPU caddy that came with the MB. I set the CPU with the caddy on the foam with the IHS face up. Then I added a line of TIM the width (the longest way) of the CPU. I normally put a dime size blob on the center of the CPU. I use a non-conductive TIM (IC Diamond) so extra squishing out doesn't matter. You cant use too much but you can use to little. So my line was very thick pea size all the way down. I then placed the water block on top of the caddy which clipped into place on top of the CPU caddy. It also due to the weight of the block started to spread the TIM. I did NOT nor do I recommend you push down on the block I just let the blocks weight clip it into the caddy. Then I picked up all 3 by the block and gently placed it onto the CPU mount aligned by the posts and screw holes it was very easy to do. I then followed Intel's instruction and fully tightened #1 screw, then #2 screw, then #3 screw, and last #4 screw. EK says in its instructions to not overtighten #3 and #4. #1 and #2 have a hard stop and you want to screw them all the way to the hard stop. So on #3 and #4 I went until I felt it was starting to get hard to turn and I stopped. IC Diamond takes heat to cure or longer time with less heat. The good news is it won't deteriorate or need replaced for a very very long time. Thermal Grizzly Kyronaught (Cermanic) I hear is great TIM too for water cooling blocks. Either way here is my CoreTemp again you can see the idle temps dropping from the TIM curing the room temperature is controlled so the ambient would not have changed much if any. My fans are still running as slow as possible w/o stopping them.

    Couple of things about the SLI. I am running my GPUs in PCIe slot 1 and 3. I had to manually set slot 3 to x16 by default it ran at x8 when on Auto. For the Asus Dominus Extreme MB I needed the ASUS ROG GeForce RTX Nvlink Bridge with Aura Sync RGB 4 Slot Graphic Cards ROG-NVLINK-4 the NVLINK-3 was too short.

    Good stuff CharlieH This is something for my future for sure.. what VM's do you run and is it under VMWare Workstation ?

    BTW I am going with the Samsung 970 Pro's as well. I hope running them in raid 0 on the xi apex will be this easy too!
