Why did Intel went with the Enterprise RST for X79 ?!?!
And the Intel SSD Toolbox doesn't work for my 2 X25M anymore with those...
Ah so it's confirmed. I'm going to consider removing them simply because the boot time is slower...though it's only a few seconds. Maybe I can just live with it.
The system ran just as quick without them
On first build I booted into Windows on an old drive from my other system. That had the standard latest RST Drivers and things ran fine. Additionally, post format the drives ran fine there also with no software at all. All this stuff feels trivial to me really.
While I'm on the topic of hard drives, can I set-up Intel SRT on my non-bootable 2TB drive and a SSD without wiping the data completely on the 2TB?
My Corsair Force GT boots into Windows slightly quicker than my Corsair Force 3 when I had it in my X58 machine. Have you updated to the latest RST drivers which are available on Asus's website?
Yeah mate we have used the drivers on Asus' website. We're saying it was quicker before installing the Enterprise drivers. Stationdrivers lists the exact same version as what's on Asus' website so they are the most current. Can't say the same about EVERYTHING else though. Wish they kept things up to date. If you guys want me to list links for all the separate chips on the board with the latest official WHQL drivers, let me know.
Seems that it's no longer safe to use anything for biocides except anti corrosive coolant since Ek and Koolance had flaking problems supposedly due to the kill coil or copper sulfate
I'm using the Koolance Pre-Mix stuff. Only needed about 1L (about 1.4 bottles worth) for my loop. Had all the corrosion and biological inhibitors in it ready to go. No problems on my water quality or anything outside of the initial super-slight clouding I copped due to not flushing the new pump out.
So what kind of overclocks have our watercoolers been getting? I'm getting amazing temps at 4.8GHz, but 5GHz needs almost .1V more Edited by ReignsOfPower - 12/14/11 at 4:27pm
