    MSI K8N Neo4-F and SATAII

    I need an answer from someone who uses this board and SATAII. I know it uses the VT8237 chipset, and I know there are ways to "supposedly" fix it. (like jumper settings). I was going to buy a couple K8N Neo4-F boards and the WD 160GB 3.0gb drives. Do they work backward compatible? Do you get problems at all, or do you still have to fidget with it a bit?

    That's an nvidia based board, no VIA VT8237 southbridge according to MSI's website. However, in the event you do run into problems with a WD SATA-II drive, there is a jumper setting on the drive to fix the problem, as explained in the following post in the storage forum help sticky. It will have no effect on real-world performance.
