    Re: X2 core type and steppings

    I think the E6 stepping is for the Toledo core and is only found in a few 3800+ CPUs with half the L2 cache disabled. These are rare though. Most 3800+ are Manchesters with E4 steppings.

    Re: Asus vs. DFI

    I bought mine specifically for the onboard RAID. I'm running 4 300GB Maxline 10 drives in RAID 10 on the SI controller and my single Raptor boot-drive on the nVidia controller. The RAID performance...

    Re: Asus vs. DFI

    I can't see the A8N holding you back. It sure isn't me. It's Prime stable at 260x10 @ 1.45V or 250x10 @ 1.40V. I've booted as high as 270x10 but it wasn't Prime stable @ 1.50V. I didn't try...

    Re: How is ASUS doing with their NF4 boards?

    I've never messed with the auto stuff before. I'd much rather have control over what's going on. Just go for it. 10% won't even break a sweat. Right now I'm at 33% OC with two Prime95s at 2.65GHz...

    OC on new A8N SLI Premium

    I just set this board up last night. I came home from work this evening and have begun ramping up my OC. Although it hasn't been stressed extensively, things look very promising. Everything seems...

    Re: How is ASUS doing with their NF4 boards?

    I'm quickly up to 2.6GHz @ 1.45V. This has not been tested for any length of time but is looking promising.

    Just installed last night on an A8N SLI Premium. Install went without a hitch. I'm running 4 drives in RAID 10 on the SI controller and a single Raptor on the nVidia controller. I'm also running 3...

    X2 core type and steppings

    I've been searching but can't find what I'm looking for. How do I decifer whether my X2 3800+ is a Venice or Manchester? I'm sure it's in the steppings but I can't find a guide for the X2s.

    I'm a real big fan of Asus mobos. I haven't personally had problems with Gigabyte but the board I was looking at doesn't seem to get the praise the others do. I have tried MSI a couple of times in...

    Re: PCI Lock?

    Well, Asus does make a board with 8 SATA channels, one of which supports RAID 10. Both the A8N SLI Deluxe and Premium do. I had not looked at these since I don't need SLI. However, I'll pay the...

    Re: RAID on K8N Neo4 Platinum?

    The board I mentioned is NOT the SLI board as I don't use this PC for much gaming. I can't describe it technicaqlly but RAID 10 is supposed to be more secure than RAID 0+1. In theory, it's possible...

    RAID on K8N Neo4 Platinum?

    I'm considering this mobo to run 4x 300GB SATA drives in a RAID 10 array on the SI controller. I will also run a Raptor as my boot drive off the nVidia controller. I will also be doing some...

  21. Re: What's wrong with my RAID 10 on a Promixe TX4200?

    The MSI and the Gigabyte listed above are the only two I know of. Anyone tried a RAID 0+1 or RAID 10 on either one of these mobos?
  22. Re: What's wrong with my RAID 10 on a Promixe TX4200?

    The problem is that I can't run 4 drives on one controller on the A8V Dlx. My RAID array is 4x 300GB and I'm booting off a Raptor.
  23. Re: What's wrong with my RAID 10 on a Promixe TX4200?

    I am currently running the A8V Dlx but it only has 2 channels on each of the 2 controllers. No 4-channel controller.

    Is there a problem with the on-board SI controller? Couldn't I expect performance similiar to the on-board controllers of my A8V Deluxe, both of which are better than the TX4200. Is RAID 0+1 much...
