could SOLTEK be pirating asus

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
If anyone saw my fedex nightmare thread then they understand some.
Neways...I built a system for someone and it got trashed. It had a soltek board in it. Well I replaced the hardware and set up the new system...And booted it to check it out. Well I expected windows driver hang..But nothing. It went in fine. The only thing windows found as a hardware change was where I separated the cd/rom and hd to 2 separate cables. The only driver I had to install was the sound. The new board is another a8n sli like the one in my specs. Even the lan driver worked...Ya think this soltek company is fleecing asus technology??

Is it the same nforce 4 chipset? If so I don't see why there'd be problems besides sound, and lan is usually marvel lan anyways.

yep ive switched the same chipset boarfs before , just make sure you get rid of any mobo specific things from the soltek board, i went from asus to dfi and did the same thing, i just erased everything that said asus in the program files and i was good to go

edit: oh yeah and i even was able to keep my raid 0 array
