If you are only going to stay at 270FSB I would run the 2:3 divider = Memory @ 810

All cpu's are not created equal and some overclock better than others. You may have to upp vcore to closer to 1.5 (watch your temps though)
is the 1103-bios better for overclocking? And isn't 1,5 a very high voltage for 3,4ghz:S

No need to be scared. Just don't use asus updater.....
Use ezflash in bios and usb as pointed out by robilar many times.

Here is a stupid question...

Other than a probe, how can one get the temps on the NB & SB?

I'm running stock cooling on them (yes Robilar I know its a no-no but I some time before I can purchase after market coolers) and want to get some baseline readings. I have only set the basics (such as mem timing -via mfg specs) and do want to do a little OC (~10%) prior getting some decent cooling.

Thanks,
D

Update: I tried it with just disabling those options on the first one, which lowered my transfer rates down to 110 MB/s. I then tried disabling it on both items listed under "SCSI and RAID controllers" that allows me to change this and my transfer rates dropped even further, down to 105 MB/s. Not exactly what I would call a fix...

Update 2: I think I figured out why I have two controllers listed that allow me to change the settings. I also think you meant to say "read caching" should be disabled since that is what HDTach measures. I did that, and my transfer rates are now 164 MB/s!
Sorry about that - I did mean READ. Glad you figured it out though and have attained a better bench. It seems to have helped every one I know that has raptors but I don't know about other drives.

Sorry for the error USlatin. I was going to fast. As Stargate found out through trial and error I meant to have said Read not Write caching. Try it now. I don't know anyone with raptors it hasn't helped but I don't know about other drives.

You will have to disable both read and write to get full bandwidth both ways.
You also do not have to disable command queuing. (With raptors)

I didn't see a difference on the write as I recall on HD Tach or on any other non-hd benches. The queuing is negligible - just a few mbs as I recall.

As I said in an earlier post though, I still don't know if it is a good idea to disable any of them since in theory they are meant to be beneficial. Again, my understanding is this synthetic bench bears little relation to what is evidenced when testing real world apps so I have my doubts that they should be turned off as it may be a hinderance rather than a benefit. I personally don't have a big r/w requirement so I've left them turned off...but that's just me.

ok... I am turning both Read and Write off... turning Command Queuing back on to bench and then I 'll come back to update and discuss the real-world dangers of doing so... after all I want safety above speed... 100MB/s is plenty...

BTW: That is only two 7200rpm drives... yup... 2 HDDs on RAID0... the four 7200rpm HDD RAID0 record is higher
