It's too bad I could only vote 'thumbs-up' once for this thing.
What a truly awesome upgrade for a PC. I wish that I could afford it.
As I've mentioned before,....what a nice addition to a giveaway prize this would make!
What a prize it would make all by itself in one of your HH contests. (probably the only way I could ever actually own one of them)
Maybe we'll see a gradual fall in the prices of these things and I'll get one a week before I die, so then I could die happy!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
i agree i would almost trade my wife for one shoot through in a water cooled 480 and we ve got a deal
When it will actually BOOT from more than SIX Motherboards on the market we can talk... From OCZ site
Note: Before installing the RevoDrive it is important to check the settings/capabilities on your motherboard. If you plan on using the RevoDrive as a boot drive please check that your motherboard supports boot over PCI-E. Please check with your motherboard manufacturer for the latest platform information and BIOS updates. If you have any installation or compatibility questions about the RevoDrive, please visit our forums or call OCZ Customer Service for recommendations.While the RevoDrive will simply plug and play for the vast majority of platforms for these particular motherboards OCZ recommends the following:-Asus Crosshair IV – Please check with motherboard manufacturer for BIOS update to enable boot over PCIe.-Biostar T-Power I45: RevoDrive is only detected in Slot 1 AND only if a PCIe GPU is used. -DFI DK-X58-T3EH6: Not detected in PCIe Slot 2 (x4 slot).-EVGA X758 SLI – Please check with motherboard manufacturer for BIOS update to enable Boot over PCIe.-Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD7 Not detected in slots 1,3,4 (it is detected in 2,5,6)-XFX 780i SLI – Bios must be upgraded to P09 (or later).
Well, I can tell you I dropped it into a Gigabyte board on that list for my testing and it had zero problems, as did the RevoDrive first gen card. Not sure why they have that short list up there. I will ask... I think it's pretty misleading though. This is just a standard PCIe X4 card here, nothing fancy or tricky compatibility-wise.

BZobisch:When it will actually BOOT from more than SIX Motherboards on the market we can talk...
It only has to boot from the one that I'M USING, thank you. (If it doesn't,......then I'll deal with it)
Well, you guys are now featured on NewEgg...
BZobisch, We just got this in from OCZ on the topic of compatibility....
"We see how the wording could have been confusing, so we have updated the product page to make it more clear:
While the RevoDrive X2 will simply plug and play for the vast majority of platforms, the following issues may arise when installing on these particular motherboards
So, that was a short list of boards that it might have issues with actually, NOT a list of boards that it will work with. Good news for you I'm sure. :) Good catch though and I was happy to see OCZ respond so quickly.
You like that Mental? Heh... let's see what sort of traffic it brings.

Newegg HAS been known to get a hit or two during the day,................
Of course I like it! More power to HH.
"Newegg HAS been known to get a hit or two during the day,................"
He was meaning here.................
mentaldisorder:He was meaning here.................
Yeah, I knew that.
But if Newegg gets the hits on that page, it translates into HH getting some exposure,....................That's what I meant.
