Arg, oh, sorry.

I'm trying to install VMWare ESXi on my PC at home (which has a GD70 mainboard), but it doesn't boot, it hangs at "loading module usb". I booted from an USB stick.

Does someone of you got that working?

Good Luck!
Marc,

I decided I am gonna re-do the machine totally as you'd suggested before.

There's no sense in me dumping all that dosh into this thing then getting less than the best performance.

You said you might have a slipstream CD image for XP Pro x64 already?

If you do, I'd much appreciate it. Also, will I need nLite still to make it? or just an ISO burner? Will it matter if my XP Pro x64 keys are for NFR copies and yours isn't?

I'm gonna get HDD Erase tonight, burn it, then wipe the SSD.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated again.

I'll get to making CDs/DVDs about 5:30pm ET tonight. Hopefully have the SSD wiped about 6:30pm.

Thanks again for anything you can tell me, suggest, etc.

I don't think they're misleading, I might just be picky I am used to an XFi after all. Which NO onboard will even come remotely close to matching for quality. But it just seems that the audio is worse than almost any onboard I've used to date. The only other onboard audio I've used was on my 939 boards. 1 Realtek AC'97 and 2 Karajan (whatever came on the 939 DFI boards).

EDIT: I would assume that one would have to run the Audio though a Capable Stereo Receiver with the Blu-Ray True HD Audio Decoding as well.

AND this is question for all.

What is the BEST 5770? (i.e. Saphire, XFX, MSI, etc...)
I would imagine that you'd need a blue ray player to reproduce blu-ray quality sound. But even with some of the .wav files I have (~50MB per song), the quality should be MUCH better.
Also, my mic volume is rather low even though I haev all of the input volumes maxed. I almost have have my mouth touching the mic to get good sound otherwise I sound REALLY quiet to other people.

As for the GPU, quite honestly, they're pretty much all the same. So at this point, you should choose by whatever criteria you set as in warranty duration, cooling solution, decibel level, etc.

For warranty XFX hands down, with a double lifetime warranty, that makes for a REALLY good reselling point (that's why I went with XFX). I haven't really looked in to the 5770's so I have no idea which has a better cooling solution and which ones are quieter. Although, with the lower power consumption of the 5xxx series cards, I'd imagine that most of them run pretty quietly comparitively to the 48xx series.
My 4870's are the loudest fans in my rig, they're very effective but pretty loud. @ 50% fan 1 4870 is louder than 2 of my 9600 GSO @ 100% fan. But then again the 4870's spin at a faster RPM and pump more air through the card.

anyone trying the beta bios?
post #2736 of 9641
I'm planning on using this board in a build soon. While I won't be going Crossfire right off the bat I will most likely be using two Radeon HD5750's with a X-Fi Titanium sound card. That's taking up slots 1, 2, and 3. (Initial purchase will use just one video card.)

Are there any space or cooling issues with a setup like this? From the pictures it looks like it could be a tight fit.

EDIT: Link to thread with the rest of my chosen components.

Okay guys thanks for the input on Video Cards. I posted a thread about it and received some good feedback. I also have like XFX for a while now. Sometimes the prices are just a bit to high. But not as high as Asus'.

I heard that MSI and Asus have better overclocking software though!? Is this true? I was informed that I could also flash the BIOS on pretty much any 5770 bios chip to ther MSI or Asus BIOS... So I may try that.

****As far as my OCventure progress. I Still have the same settings setting and voltages for the

(263 x 13) 3419Mhz CPU
2630Mhz CPU-NB
and 1753Mhz Ram.

Once again, I achieved stability at another .05v increase (trying in .01v increments) of the CPU DDR-PHY Voltage!

Before it was taking about 2.25v to the Dram voltage at 1.20(stock DDR-PHY) to 1.28v with instability past 1.28v.

And now I'm at Stock Voltages, keeping within my Warrantee voltage range. (2.0-2.05v). So I may even be able to work this number down... I've been running PRime95 BLEND for just abuot 6 hours now. Couldn't get past 2.5 last night with less than 1.38-39 so I just put her 1.4 and Boom!

This is very good to hear! Keep us posted, I'm very interested in knowing how this goes, and the overall results of that voltage option.

I agree with Marc. Keep providing that kinda stuff!

I gotta learn a LOT more about overclocking so I can tune up that new rig I'm finishing with this MSI motherboard and dual 5850s.

Wondering if I can squeak 3.9GHz out of a 550 x4-OC CPU on air?

-Will do guys. I'm geting ready to pass 6.5 hours on BLEND at 1753MHz. Stock ram volts...Finally some Progress.
-For some reason though I still can't boot into windws7 past 1633-1640MHz. I used to be able to go as high as 1697-1703Mhz.
-So my wall upon entering windows using "Multistep OC Booster", step 1 will be @ 266Mhz HT Bus (HTB) being that step 1 idles back 20Mhz upon Windows 7 entrance.
-But I will just use the OC dial after that. IF my IMC will let me go that far.
