Congrats bro! Will you be running it on Linux? If so then you need to check out the blockdev command....I got that advice from another poster here and it made quite a big difference.

Also make sure to do EVERYTHING important within the BIOS of the controller. Don't rely on the OS based software for anything other than reporting array status.

na, no linux, windows 7 only

thanks for the BIOS tip!

I remember u from waaaaaay back @ XS.. the thread RE: X1950Pro .. those were my gaming days

I still need to buy cables, one PCI bracket & might just go ahead & get 512MB for each card

Hell yea man, brofist.

I actually have a question....been talking with some buddies from work....

I'm getting one of these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227597


Which means the Perc has to go.....so I have to build a micro ATX system for it. I have a pentium 4 here laying around (socket 478) and the only 478 mobo I see at newegg is this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...2E16813138174R

Now it's dirt cheap.....but I plan on water cooling it and stuff to make sure it will be stable and last. I still have some GPU blocks that will work in the P4, and I'm getting this Lian Li case: (or something similar)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811112294


Does anyone know of a better socket 478 solution? I mean there's this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813500044
but I have to buy a CPU. I guess it's not that big of a deal, but the CPU will be literally doing NOTHING.

I may be be able to rig one of my spare mcp60 CPU blocks to fit, but I would certainly consider trading if you have one my good man *MONACLE*

no I dont sorry , I was just going to say that Petra from PTS has a FS thread over @ XS, a good handful of old skool WC CPU WBs, nothing over $20 - check it out :shrug:
post #4727 of 7257
as for the s478 biostar mobo.. nice colours
the only thing I dont like about it personally is no GbE.. I think MSI had a similar product, 2 versions, one with 10/100Mb & the other with GbE.. shouldnt be much diff in $ considering its a mATX, 945 chipset yaddayadda *very simliar specs to the biostar
post #4728 of 7257
Well looks like I'm going to go ahead and order either the socket 478 board or the 775....the thing is that the CPU on 775 is only $41....so cheap.

I kinda wish they were the same socket because I could just fry the **** out of the P4 under a chilled loop and see what kind of clocks I can get. Give me a sec and I'll take a pic of my workbench.....I still have a functioning laptop mobo, save for the power jack pads that came loose. I didn't want to have to order another power jack and solder it back on, but I may be able to just solder the power supply directly to the pads and then make a router or something....
It as a P4 2.88GHz (SOMEBODY CALL NINE WAN WAN, FERMI FIRE BURNIN ON THE DANCE FLOOOOR WAHOOOOOO)


Give me once sec.....
