    Ok so I have it up again and its running

    I unplugged the two WD blacks while setting up windows (For safety I don't want to install on wrong drive) got windows running shut it down and plugged in the two WD blacks restarted it and windows wont recognize the hard drives as being plugged in. (It wont let me browse them in explorer, its like they aren't even plugged in)

    HOWEVER, BIOS recognizes them as being healthy and so does the RAID utility.
    So they aren't bad but I do not understand what is going on here.

    Also i posted a picture of my PSU on the forum a few posts ago but it is also available in my system specs.

    Before I go all gun ho and replace my PSU I wanted to get all of yours take on it.
    When I got it I was told it was a "Mid Quality one that will handle my build". However I have added a different Video Card and also changed the Hard Drives in it since that statement was given to me.

    Once I get help getting windows to recognize the drives I will get the aforementioned Drive utility and monitor the details given by that and post them here.

    Again Thank You all for your continued help, I would be no where on my own.

    Try this to see if Windows is seeing them at all: right click on start, then left click on Computer Management, and then in the new window left click on Storage>disk management. This will show the drives that Windows sees on the right hand side. See if the other drives are showing up in the right hand side of the window. If so, you can click on them to find out more info. You may have to click on them and assign a drive letter for Windows to use them (don't ask me why this sometimes happens).

    Have you checked Device Manage to see if there are any problems there?

    OH wait do i need a software RAID manager to let windows see the raid array?
    Which should i use, I have always just used intel but that could maybe be the problem?
