Mines the same I wouldn't worry about it, I believe it's just a classification. As standard the board is set to IDE doesn't matter that it shows the drives as such as long as they are using AHCI.

If anyone knows any different then I need help too!

ASUS is superior to Gigabyte in just about every way. Probably not customer service though.

Of course you're going to pay for quality though. Also you don't find too many ASUS boards with the Caps next to the socket.

Sure so long as you aren't too looped to read numbers and perform simple math when trying to Clock your BUS speed.

When 2500 looks like 250 it's time to stop drinking, stop clocking or both and just go sleep it off.


Oh hey Kah, got the strips. Which side(Blue or Silver) to the Heatsink or does that really even matter?

Doesn't matter. just remember, THEY ARE NOT tape. They are pads. thats why I suggested the mobo WC block as a possibility. They do cut nicely with hobby knives.

Okay kewl. I'm probably going to compare them with the TIM that I have on hand to get the best possible temp. But if TIM really isn't the way to go(i.e. too messy) then it's also good to have these on hand.

Ya, I googled it.
They didn't use a hyphen.
HeadMixer, now you choose to correct my Japanese. HA!

Remember the Alamo?

I hyphenated "kanrengaish" to make it easier to read for those who are illiterate in Japanese to read it. Actually, Japanese is almost never Romanized, such that "kanrengaisha" should be written 関連会社.

Now which of the two do you find easier to read?

If you wished to charge another windmill, you should have corrected my Chinese rendering in PinYin. It should be "guanxi gontzu" I believe (though I feel the 2nd word is spelled wrong - ask a Chinese from Taiwan and they won't know either), though rendering Chinese into PinYin or the Romanized alpahabet is an absolute art form and is only accepted in Mainland China.

I can, however, say it pretty A-OK though.

You should have stuck with Old Reliable - and that would be clowning me about my computer problems. I can PM you a list of what I have gone through today if you would like. They are all due to this SATA expansion card that I am trying to make work.

Now THAT would be a much more viable target!

Ceadderman, thanks for the correction:

If you doubt my sincerity about my opinion of GB = Garbage, then just check out the UD5/UD7 thread. I was plenty vocal about GB being another Made in China junk product, so much so that the Admin PM'd me and said he even had a GB board catch fire.

Not only burned up much of his computer but also part of his desk! He took Gigabyte to court and they awarded him US$66.00 to cover his computer and other damage caused by the fire.

Oh, and I have a real nice, brand-new actually, Gigabyte UD5 here that has quite a lot of frequent flier miles due to its RMA travels. It's now nicely shorted out in 3 places with little arrows nicely placed to point them out.

Only problem: it's not the board I sent back for RMA. (think I'll stick with ASUS)

GB support being better than ASUS???

Please don't make me laugh 'till I hurt myself.

ASUS has okay customer service. Since I've never dealt with Gigabyte's CS departments, I wouldn't want to misrepresent myself by saying that ASUS is better.

ASUS tho has me sometimes. Though everything else has me

!!!!OUCH!!!!

I may bring attention to your ignorence, I would never correct you.

I envy you.

As "Brilliant" is I am. I am one of the more ignorant.(There is so much more to know) Doesn't seem to be enought life time to know it all.

I do well to speak English American.

Forgive me "Oh Great One".

I have two SATA expantion cards in the "bone yard" under my bed.

The only experience I have with them is bad.

Hope you got a PCI card?

I tried PCIe X1.

The PCIe X1 slot was covered by my video card.

The only other options were to try the X4, X8, X16 slots.

Did not matter which slot I tried, they all conflicted with the video card.

They seemed to load OK.

Then about 5 min after start-up I would hear that "B-Bonk" sound, and they would be gone.

Decided to go with a dual drive external USB3.

Hi guys,

I removed the heatsink of my motherboard and changed the thermal paste of the NorthBridge and SouthBridge and Lucid Hydra Logix, to improve the temperatures.

By the way, I have not changed the mosfets thermal paste.

But now it seems that the temperature of my NorthBridge is higher than before...

So guys, what thermal paste would you recommend me for the mosfets and the rest of the chips?

Thanks
