Alrite finally got it working and all it was the power supply. Now i have run into another problem i want to setup 2 80 gig in RAID0 so i go into bios and setup everything enable the raid and all and i install windows. So once it finished installing i checked in my computer it doesnt recognize the dvd drive and the harddrive i see is only a 80 gig not 160. So then i restart check in bios make sure everything is there and then when it trys to boots it say error reading disk. Have i cofigured the RAID wrong any help would be appreciated thanks.

Right Click on MY COMPUTER>MANAGE>STORAGE you should see both your Hard Drives, if one is grey or something not saying NTFS or something by it. Try to formating it and restarting computer that should work.

I had a problem like that to, had to giggle my power cables lol..... anyways try it out.
