that stick won't work, i tried it. you need registered (buffered) ecc ram like this.
on a note of the cooling.. you guys/gals all know that little fan that comes with some asus motherboards right? the one for the heatsink between cpu socket and the I/O plate? with a little effort, it will fit onto the fins of the perc 5/i heatsink
turns out it cools it quite well!! warm to the touch, unlike before id have to yank my hand away instantly!
on another note, im very excited!! my 8484 to 8482 cable should be here today! (on fedex truck, fedex is evil though! (if it gets here before noon, i may change my opinion though..))
i plan to benchmark my 4x SAS 36GB 15K's in raid0/5 and showoff the results, what programs should i use? i think its hdtach i cant use, (w7. and it has a killswitch for non compadible OSes, hdtach that is...)
