Mannnn....I just put this system together and set the first boot device to cd in order to reinstall windows, and what does it do.......it tells me to press any key to boot from cd and then boots my SATA drive right up, and I set it up completely on the ABIT AV8. Stupid computer, so now I'm on the new system, but with the old OS and stuff. Hmmmmmm.............I guess i know what I need to do, but it just seemed pretty strange. Everything seems to work fine so far.
EDIT: I reformatted and reinstalled and am downloading 3dmark06 to test the cards out. Everything seems to be good.
reEDIT: runs through 3dmark05 no problems with max temps of 66 and 65c on the 2 cards. The score doesn't seem very high...maybe 16x/16x is not necessary. I gtg 2 bed, I've been up since yesterday morning aside from a couple cat naps in the car. I had to build this new system before I could go to bed.
wow I just realized 3dmark runs at standard to low settings by default, my score really was pitiful.
anyone want to buy a nice 939 system? JK.
Saturday edit: I overclocked my cpu 400MHz and ram 67MHz and gained 2000+ 3d points. Now @ ~11500 points. I just bought 3dmark06 to try. Why not?Edited by ny_driver - 4/17/10 at 9:05am
