    I just left my CPU throttling set at the default 50%. That shouldn't come into play unless you experience some serious overheating.

    The dividers 1/1, 2/2 3/3 etc are all the same. There are some who claim that one works better than others, but I don't believe it. If you want you could always try some experiments for yourself. I have mine set to 6/6.

    6/6 divider @ 200FSB seems logical to me so that's what I use.

    I turn off that cpu throttling. I'll "throttle" it myself, thank you very much ! Seriously, you don't need that enabled. If it's an HLT command type of thing, it could actually be slowing your computer down. Can't have that.

    Yes..... to the serrile ( sp??) adapter setup. Running a single WD1200JB on it and it works great. Keep in mind tho that I think there were some issues with earlier BIOS's and the SATA controller. U might want to do a search on that if you're using anything besides the last two BIOS's. It worked (works ) fine for me with both the 1.6 and 1.7 BIOS's.

    Enjoy your new mobo. They are SWEET!

    OK, you're confusing CPU disconnect with CPU throttling.

    CPU disconnect is what you're talking about, and BTW it has absolutely no impact on performance. It simply helps cool the CPU by issuing a halt command when the CPU is idle.

    CPU throttling is when the CPU is throttled back in the event of severe overheating. The threshold for CPU throttling is also adjustable in BIOS. Your CPU will not be throttled back unless the temp goes over that threshold.
