I'm waiting mine this week. Hope I'll more success than with a previous KT7-RAID. And this time I don't took the RAID part and will invest later in it with a separate card when needed.

What kind of problems did you have with the KT7-RAID?

I just installed the 8KTA3+ Raid with an Athlon 1.33/266 and a ThermoEngine cooler with a 7K RPM fan. My previous board was an Asus K7M with a slot 900 MHZ Tbird. In a mid-tower case, I ran into 2 minor problems. The internal case fan had to be removed to clear the board. I reinstalled it after te board was in place. The other presented a problem that could have damaged the board. I had to move both the DVD and CDRW drives up 2 bays to clear the coils and capacitors that were interferred by the rear of the drives. If I had forced the board into place the coils or caps would have been damaged or broken from the board. Had I had known of the problem, I could have moved the drives before attempting to install the mobo. After that the upgrade went pretty smooth. Good board, but a tight fit.

I would consider these problems to be with the case and not the 8KTA3 mobo. Some mid-tower cases aren't meant for full sized ATX boards (which this one is), although they do have the screw holes for them so it can be done. As you say though it can be quite a tight fit. Good to hear you got it all working though :]
