isn't there a patch released for correcting a VIA bug in the PCI bus?
I seem to remember that to get max raid performance you needed to install a patch that fixed the VIA burst transfer on the PCI bus.
I remember that a PCI burst should be 1024 cycles but VIA was only getting 900 or so? also the cpu was in the rotation when it should not be.
Has anyone heard of this, and if so has anyone used it? my board is in the hands of the RMA gods now so I can not check it.
I remeber that this patch also fixed VIA chipset problems with sound cracking.
