This is prob do to changing to the Jmicron. But Mastiffman is the one to talk to about raid issues! He will prob be back on after the holidays or maybe sooner.

Just out of curiosity why did you have to move it to the other controller?

The best suggestion that I would give is to incresae the Sb Voltage being that you have more than 2 HDDs. teh SB Voltage in the BIOS is known to aid stability as it stabilizes the I/O of raid setups as well as the SB.

SO E, no Thuban for you? I want one just to see how close to 2G I can get my ram!

I wouldn't be surprised if the jumped from DDR3 to DDR4 then to DDR5 in the samwe time frame as the market did with DDR on the 939's to DDR2 on the AM2 and 2+, then DDR3 on the AM3's... It will be interesting to watch the progression though!? But liek you said E... Ram is lacking and will be hindering performance even more with more cores. There's DDR3 Ram that can handle speeds of about 2400Mhz, So If AMd would just make BD chips IMC's strong enough to handle the 2000mhz+ ram freq Plus CPU-NB Pushing 3200-3400mhz Stably with minimal voltages, they may still sit on DC DDR3 for another year after the BD Chips come out. I really can't wait to see the performance of the DDR5 Ram!!! That will be nutts! The DDR5 in my 5770 is running at x4 of 1500 stably so that is a good indication of the potential. But really what is the point of anything over a Quad? Unless games are going to be getting that rediculous in the future. I really don't see the benefit of Computers getting that much faster. Multitasking levels may be the focus. With Blu-Ray, DX11+ Games and 3D gaining momentum, who knows. Once again, it'll be interesting to see the path that PC will take.

I just keep thinking to myself, how much faster CAN they really get.... Windering if the ATI 7xxx cards will have DRR6 Ram too....

okay this tread is awesome and huge. Its a lot of pages to dig through, so I ask and probably has been before: is it possible to run an nvidia card as primary and an nvidia as a physx dedicated card. I know that it is not possible to run sli so... could this work?

check out this article. sli on a 790fx-gd70. one of the authors has a familiar name.

Hi... Been a long time since I was last on. Life has been a real... well... has interrupted my OC'ing activity but I am back on track.

Got into OC'ing my system "Old No. 7" using the "Down & Dirty" manual. For the first time ever broke the 3.7 Ghz. bottleneck I created for myself on past attempts. Reached 3.895 Ghz. on 1.485V. Air cooled with sustained temp of 55C with an IntelBurn - 20 passess.

In reading the D&D manual, I saw that the "max" voltage is 1.55V. Is this based on the MB or the CPU itself? I am using the PII 965 BE C2. Also, I didn't push 3.9 Ghz. because I didn't feel comfortable getting into the 1.5V area. Is this voltage a constant voltage or is it fluctuating in such a way that if max is 1.55 I should maybe keep things below 1.5V to allow me some sort of a "buffer" zone? I think I could reach the 4.0 Ghz. on air but certainly not at the expense of my system.

Thank for your responses... Glad to be back.

issue with C2.... its allot more heat.. and requires more voltage to go higher

Eitherway you should be safe using 1.5v... just the drawback is the Heat... if you can handle it with your current cooler (staying in the 50's -> 50c-57c zone) then you are fine.... if it goes above 60c ... forget about it downclock

Cool... thanks. I went along those lines when I saw some 58C's getting into my HWMonitor. I am hoping to soon switch to the Cordair H70 in hopes of a few more degrees of headroom to OC up to 4Ghz. which is my goal.

LMAO skip that it is so much easier now! Went that was worte that was what you had to do and I was told not to post it here on OCN but I can PM you to the needed files and website that is the original that is still updated. Currently they are working on some GTX 460 issues, that being said it is only a matter of time and it does work for some at this point with the GTX 460.

SLi wont work??? WHa



@ Mastiffman: I did not think there was DDR4... But I totally agree at first I really wanted Bulldozer heck this rig was supposed to tide me over till then and then drop in the new chip I just hace a feeling that I would regret the switch because as soon as I did I would find an article about the new AM4 and how AM3+ chips will not work in them......

I see that now but my question is can I run my GTX 470 with another nvidia card as a dedicated physx card on this board. I haven't tried since I don't have another nvidia card yet but wanted to confirm that it is possible before I buy one. I can't find any info on this. Everyone talks about an ATI primary card with an nvidia card running physx.

[EDIT] ok found my answer... yes
