    1. Can't help you with the drives. It's a function of a lot of things like price vs budget vs speed vs reliability vs size etc. However, those EVOS are really good drives. I used them in a build for a friend on his RIVE IV. Perhaps others will weight in on this for you.
    2. Do a uefi windows install per link here; (sticky on forum home page)
    http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...ountry=&status=

    3. RAID install is detailed here;
    http://rog.asus.com/tag/raid-uefi-setup/

    4. The cables with the board are fine.
    5. If you don't have the manual get it from the ASUS site for the board and that will detail the sata ports. I don't have the RIVE IV any more so I don't have the manual.

    Hope this helps and all the best.

    The 4 black sata ports are Intel sata 2, and the 2 red ones right next to them are the Intel sata 3 ports. The remaining 2 (red) ports are the ASMedia sata 3 ports.

    P.S. You can download the manual from the ASUS website.

    Go directly to the Intel download centre for drivers for your system. Win8 if installed with a internet connection will do all the drivers for you by the way. The IRST I do get from Intel and not ASUS.
    To help us help you - please provide as much information about your system and the problem as possible.

    Like I said very few drivers actually need installing with Win8 The OS does it all if you have a internet connection during the install.
