    got the 2.8 8-core with 4gb ram, quick ?'s

    1--i have the stock 320 gb drive, 2 WD AAKS 500 gb drives, and a 150 gb raptor drive. plan is use stock for Os/Apps, 1 WD 500 gd for data and 1 wd 500 gb for backup, then use the raptor as a scratch disk. sound good? correct? i'm assuming bay 1=320 bay 2= 500
    bay 3= 500 bay 4= 150 raptor

    2--with 2 x 2b ram from OWC, how do i put it in? and can i still use the 1gb x 2 that comes with it? how would i put those in overall?

    thanks TONS

    I've heard that there are heating issues with bay 4 and that you should stick the raptor drive in either bay 2 or 3 (not one to minimize noise as much as possible).
