Asus A8N-SLI premiun - Page 3

post #21 of 29
At bios version 1011 the max vcore is 1.5v and that is the only issue I am encountering now with it. Sound like u can get another .05v by keeping it at a lower bios version. As far as FSB I know I have gotten mine to boot as high as 330Mhz, and I am sure I could get more out of it. The heatpipe seems to work great.. normally no matter what I am doing MB temp remains around 32°C.

Is there a way to change the DRAM/CPU ratio on this board? I've looked thru the bios and can not seem to find it.

Its the top option under the ram options.
200 is a 1:2 ratio.
400 is a 1:1 ratio.
and so on.

thanks. Also, what was the highest FSB you could get just the mobo up to with it being stable in prime? I'm working my way up right now, im at 280 with muti. set to 7 and now my mem. at 1:2 ratio

EDIT: something else i wanted to know, is there any way to turn off/turn down the time to get into the damn RAID utilty loadout on startup? It seriously holds up my boot time by 8+ seconds

Just dont install the Nvidia firewall or the Nvidia Ide drivers. I did and couldnt reliable connect to the internet for more than 20 minutes. Ive heard the Nvidia ide drivers do funky things The heatpipe works very well, just internet use the chipset is usually around 30C The spacing between the 2 16X slots is nice as well. This may not be a problem, but make sure you get at least brand name ram, as ive heard horror stories about people with generic pc 3200. The only complaint ive had is that you might have to pull the videocard to get at your ram, not a huge issue. Oh ya and the placement of the 4 pin molex right about your video card at the back of the case is annoying, but oh well. All in all easy to set up, use, and super stable.

Just dont check the box, and windows will use there drivers. Ive heard about funny things happening if they are installed. You could try them, but if you have issues, just throw in the xp cd its problaby the easiest way to fix it. This isnt a problem thats specific to this board, or asus, this is an Nforce 4 problem, and if i had to choose i would do it again. Oh ya there is an easy way to stop that raid thing at boot, just disable it in bios.

You need to disable the secondary RAID in the BIOS. I forget what it's called but it's not difficult to find. It's where all the other enable/disable options are.
