post #271 of 438
CD, have you tried manually setting all the voltages to nice levels so that the boards and quads have plenty of power?

Okay what I did to solve my issue was go to the INtel site and DL the Floppy (F6) drivers you might normally use to install XP on a RAID array. I put these on a thumb dirve. I then "Loaded Drivers" when installing Vista and it worked!!

I have installed Vista on a number of RAID aras and never had to provide a driver.

This is for the Intel (Marvell) SATA controller not J Micron.

Thnanks for all the help and ideas guys. I had a god friend visiting and he helped me too...for two day.. nothing.

Then I got a brainfart to look at the Ontel site to see if there were any RAID drivers for XP just n a hunch. These drivers are not included on the installation CD...so when I previously inserted the CD during install to load drivers Vista did not find anything.

I still have some vexing issues though. I cannot play my favorit game: DiRT. It simply will nto run. I have a bought and paid-for game and have to run a no CD crack to get it to play in Vista...sad. Codemaster's SUCK.

Cannot get it to play in XP or Vista...despite having it running fine on the P5K/8800GT. I took the CF issue out of the equation by using an Nvidia card and still nothing...it blows.

Until I get a decent Benchmark I am not posting any rsults...I feel it is unfair t do so until the board has been optimized.

I will say this: It runs CineBench R 10 petty fast.

I ordered another HD3870X2 since I don't think I will be abl to pry they one out of Mistress Quickly without creating a rift in our Family Structure

And Ian still has my other one fitting it for a watrbock...rather than get up his snout Pming every hour about progress I just bought another one...I wonder if I could run three of them?

Anyway I am still working on this rig trying to get it uj to par...at last I can use it fr Wb Browsing at this point...

Can't wait to see Crysis, esp if you go with the tri-GPU setup

Well there ar severalthings I will need to improve on the motherboard.

The SB cooler is obnoxiously loud all the time...that has got too change. And I think the MCH should by LCed.

Until drivers for dual HD 3870 X2 arrive this will be a Sheep in Wolf's clothing...I gt btter marks off the QX9650 TBH.

Cool I will add it to the list...

Next thing I need to solve is how to make the Areca1210 work with the board.

I am getting pitiful bandwidth in RAID0 off the Marvell controller.
