oh, uh...yeah, that's a big thread, but we're the second biggest case thread! I can tell you guys this; I am so proud to be a member of a club that concentrates on the quality of our members instead of the properness of our posting procedure. Is it just me or is there quite a proliferance of cry babies pointing out every little posting infraction to the moderators in a lot of the other threads? Not wanting to start a flame war here, but I guess that's where the saying "Some people's kids!" came from.

Question!

I am, right now in the process of setting up my new build with the Storm Scout.

I am using the new ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 Motherboard. It clearly states both on the ASUS Website, and in its Manual, that it supports eSATA. However for the life of me I can not find any connectors on the Motherboard for an eSATA cable! Nor is it mentioned in the Manual where or how to plug this in; the manual just says the motherboard supports it.

The Storm Scout obviously supports eSATA via its front panel.

So I am wondering...

Where have you guys plugged your Scouts eSATA cable into on your Motherboards? Should I just use one of the regular SATA connectors on the motherboard?

If you realy feel like you have too use the front eSata you should plug it into a normal sata port yes, preferably one so that it appears as number 6 or sumtin. I don't have it plugged in anylonger since I'm using external USB drives

Yeah 10-4 on that one. When I modded my case and sleeved my wiring I took the esata cable out. I figured the same as Mlbrottan, just going to use external usb.

Great! Thats kinda what I thought I should do with it but wanted to make sure. Asus' information is kinda confusing and the fact that my Mobo was an Open Box Deal from Newegg, that came without a Manual, makes this a little more confusing! lol I'm going off the downloaded PDF Manual!

And yes... I likely won't ever use the eSATA on the case but, I'm just one of those who likes to have all those little things plugged in and ready, just in case I ever DO have a need for it and then won't have to open the case and fiddle around with connecting something that I never plugged in...

I'll likely end up using my USB Flash Drives far more often anyway...

Min FPS 16.1
Max FPS was 75.9

With 2 x 5770 in Crossfire

FPS 51.7
Scores 1303
Min. FPS 15.02
MaX was 149.7

The Two Low end boards almost beat my 4870x2.
They both scored in the mid 19000's in the 3D Mark 06 Scores.
Ok. The General sparked my interest in this so here it is.

This is only on my single 5870:
FPS 36.9
Scores 929
Min. FPS 17.3
Max FPS 99.8
So, 2 5770's beat out one 5870 in Max but the 5870 wins in the Min, interesting.
There's also a 64bit version that I didn't run.

@ Enigma, did you have the 32 bit or 64 bit version?

I can also run this on a 5850 & I can crossfire the 5870 and 5850 if anyone wants me to. Also mine was with Tesselation.

Here's Hard Ocp's report on thier tests: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2009/..._tessellation/

Well my mobo, an Evga X58 tri-sli, aka, a 132-bl758-tr has Esata on the back I/O connector and one in the middle of the board to hook to the front of the case but any connector will do. My backups are much faster with Esata than USB but USB 3.0 will close that gap. Also the cradle and connector that I had to buy to use the Esata port is around $33- and has it's own power brick.
That Gigabyte board that Clee just got will do USB 3.0 drives powered by the mobo up to 500Gb.
