    Nothing has been solved. :rolleyes:

    The linked driver from Asus (version 28) are around since April 24, and they do NOT solve the problem as confirmed by many users in the ABIT forum. The 28 is...

    What you say is somewaht misleading. You are talking about the substituted SATA support through the PCI bus, like on the NF7-S. That was just an transitional solution until native SATA support...

    There is no difference in "Real-life", but if you look at benchmarks and STR (serial transfer rates) you will see that the SI controller is clealry beating the Highpoint and the Promise SATA...

    I have tried all jumper settings, inlcuding taking all jumpers off: the SI BIOS does not see it.

  5. 120 GXP with PATA to SATA adaptor problem

    All of my other HDD are working with the PATA to SATA adaptor, only my 120 GXP does not. The SI RAID controller BIOS does not recognize the disk. Do I miss something? Anybody has a 120 GXP running...

    so, P4 can suck your kiss? well, I also have a NF7-S running, and it's good board, but neither chipset nor the XP 2400+ I am running are a match for a dual channel P4 2400 system. The E7205 is...

    Interesting, I have also systems from both brands, and I have benchmarked them and these benchmarks show a very different picture from what you mention. A 2400 is very much at the level of a 2400+,...

    my thoughts! There isn't much difference, and if so it's anway specimen related. That somebody gets his NF7 2.0 to 235 MHz, does not mean your sample goes the same way up. At the end it comes down to...

    It looks like that with the adaptor running your PATA disk from the SATA controller it's performs better. But it's soon history. The new Intel chipsets have already native SATA and SATA RAID support...

    LOL :) if ABIT would say something, we probably would not have this discussion, wouldn't we?

    The jumper is not documented, so it's up to us to find out. As I said, it's doing nothing, at least...

    Re: NF7- S 1.1 to 1.2 differences?

    The 1.2 has 4 holes around the socket for the Alpha or the Swiftech HS and better voltage supply. And finally the PCB color is changed from the tradionally light brownish to a sexy orange. Looks...

    Re: Abit NF7-S Rev 1.2 or Epox 8RDA+?

    given the problems with Epox boards in general over the last years (overheating and weak circuitry) and the not always happy 8RDA owners in particular, my vote goes for the NF7 Rev 1.2.

    Re: are all 1.2 NF7-S's the A3 version?

    actually, I have never heard about a NF7 1.2 with other than an A3 stepping NB. Where do you have this from?

    You got this very wrong intelli: :) It's just the other way around. The Western Digtal JB series 800/1000/1200 has a 8 MB on disk cache. The D740X has only 2 MB.

    The Western Digital 8 MB cache disks 800/1000/1200 JB are CLEARLY faster than the Maxtor D740X in apllications. They also have a higher/better bandwidth or transfer rate in MB/sec. That has been...

    Frankly speaking, the current trend seems to be the different direction. Not only because of the much higher clocking CPU, but in particular now with the release of the 533MHz FSB Northwood, there is...

    If you see 2 drives, a RAID o array is not present, that's for sure. I recommend to clean re-install:

    First you have to access the RAID controller BIOS and set up what you want: I guess that will...

    I have disabled my Promise Lite, and use a Highpoint PCI RAID controller. It's a pitty, and the only drawback I see with the A7V333, but the HPT is simply faster and has more features.

  22. Re: "chainbolt"

    Honestly, even though the 120 GXP are really the best what you can get for RAID currently, I would hold back. ATA 100 or ATA 133 are "history" already. I a few (?) months we have a new toy. The new...

    The changing back to ACPI is no good. Have look in the MS knowledge base, there are tons of articles about ACPI, really interesting. I remember they do not recommend to change back.
