not happy with my Rampage IV :(

Level 9
Having some big problems with my Rampage IV MB. I had a Maximus IV Extreme that was set up with 2 OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SSD Max in RAID 0 and 2 Western Digital 500GB for data and 1Western Digital 300GB Ghost of C:.. When I switch MB and when it boot it up it would not open windows from my raid drives. I try to run a windows repair and it wouldn't see the drive. I was able to boot of my ghost drive but i have to reset the controller from raid to AHCI. if I leave it set to raid and when it boot off the ghost drive into windows it will not see all my drives. So when I set it to AHCI everything is ok but I can not make a clone copy to my raid drives.. I try 2 programs 1 is Norton Ghost that I have used before with no problems and the other is Acronis both of them do not work after ghost finish and I do a restart it doesn't see the drive. After days of trying this I did a fresh install of windows on my raid drives with no problem all I had to do was reinstall all my programs. So now after I reinstall all my programs that took me 3 days to do I had to do a restart after an update an my PC would not start again it would not see the raid drive.. I spoke to OCZ and they told me I didn't have a problem with the drives . I think there is a problem with the raid controller. Because I also try to use 2 other drives in raid 0 and I have the same problem an I know I am using the new drivers for the Intel Raid controller.. Please Help!!! 6963

I personally like having my USER PROFILE on another partition or drive. Use to having it that way. Not a gamer so I wouldn't know if moving the games to another partition or drive would benefit . I have my OS and APPs on one partition and DATA on an other drive or partition.
