Thanx man..

I've even tried @ 4.4GHz but crashed in no.3 test LoL..

But I have SuperPi run @ 4.4GHz screen shot ready for HWBot 10.650 sec ....

My previous best was 10.920 sec @ 4.3GHz..

GOOD LUCK..

It has 3 PCIE x 16 slots (Pro/Pro TURB has 2 PCIE x16 SLOTS)..

And Deluxe has more advanced OC options in BIOS like full set of CPU GTL voltages (Pro/Pro TURBO has only 3 settings) that are important when pushing a Quad CPU over 450MHz FSB..

It also has NB GTL voltage and DRAM skews options in BIOS..

It has better onboard cooling system..

And few other things that I can't remember right now..

But the question is: DO YOU REALLY NEED IT over your TURBO??

I hear that you're having issues with DriveExpert and Raid,but still you might be doung something wrong that holds you back in setting RAID..

And still you can buy a RAID controller PCIE card and be happy as you can't be sure that setting up RAID will work on Deluxe motherboard especially refurbed one..

CHEERS..
I'm not doing anything wrong as far as setting up RAID. I have done this before many times. My hard drives were previously setup to run RAID but they stopped working on my previous system after I ran a CD that caused them to crash. Now I ended up having to format them & reinstall XP on them. I have used CTRL-I to setup the RAID & F6 to install the RAID drivers but I can't even install XP on the Hard Drives with the BIOS set to RAID only if it is set to IDE. I know it doesn't make any sense. I have tried to get help for months from Microsoft Support in their forums but they won't respond or help.

As far as Drive Xpert goes I have been unable to figure out how to use it at all. I tried to plug my hard drives into the Drive Xpert ports but they were not recognized or seen by the BIOS so they were completely unusable within Windows as far as setting up anything. Besides that I never could do anything with Drive Xpert within Windows because it always showed as offline. So I have no drives plugged into those ports.


Right now I was going to exchange the Turbo for another one from the people I bought it from but since they don't have another one they are willing to give me a refund. This was an Open Box & it appeared to have also been used when I got it. The Refurbished Deluxe I can get will only cost me about $10 more which I think is a great deal.

It only comes with the back plate, one SATA Cable, & an IDE Cable.
Now what it doesn't come with is the Fan, Manual, FDD cable, 7 more SATA cables, 2 SATA power cables, 2-port USB and 1-port 1394 module, & the Q-connector. Which are no big deal since I can't use the fan with the CPU Cooler anyways. I have plenty of cables. I already have the module which isn't really needed with all the ports on the board already. I also have the Q-connector too. I've already downloaded the Manual.
The only other thing that is missing is the software & that is easy enough to get. All I have to do is make a copy of the DVD I have now.

One of the things the Deluxe also has that the Turbo doesn't is 6 SATA ports instead of 5 which I can use the extra port since I don't have anything that is external & all my equipment is internal. I also only have one IDE device which I may be changing out before long to SATA.

Now does this make more sense?
My memory should still work with this board shouldn't it?

Had to go to start, manage and diskmanagement. There it found and unknown format disk. Had to repair it and make a new partition. After that it works.

However, Crystal Diskmark gives me half the Read speed I should have when running these two in Raid 0.
When you set this up did you have to do anything else besides plug the drives into the ports & install the software in order for them to be seen & for the software to work?

Were the drives automatically seen in the BIOS or did you have to change settings in the BIOS in order for them to be seen?

Hi,

Read Chapter 3.9.2 in the manual for info about the bios settings.

I did not touch those bios settings. I just plugged in my two SSD, booted Windows, and at least one of them was detected. Installed the Drive Xpert Software, rebooted, Started the Drive Xpert software and selected the Super Speed feature, which is Raid 0 Striping. Rebooted Windows. Drives where marked as online, but did not show up in my computer. Had to go to 'manage' and Disk Management. There I found my unpartitioned Raid Array. Created a new partition and formatted. That's it.

Peformance was a joke though! I see under Chapter 3.9.2 in the manual that it seems you can also use one single drive.

I'm shooting for highest possible Prime95 Large FFTs stable FSB on my P5Q Pro Turbo now. Have of course removed two RAM sticks and are running with 4GB.

So, I'm at 465FSB right now. FSB Volts are 1.3v and GTL at 0.65x. 1.3v x0.63 was not stable. So what happens when you increase FSB Volts... CPU getting hotter? If I go 'crazy' with let's say 1.4v x0.65 it is 0.91 Volts.. Not a very big difference from 1.3v x0.65 = 0.845 Volts...

So what is the big drawback? CPU heat, or other things?

turrican9, what are your temps like?

Increased VCore is the cause of increased heat for CPU if I'm not mistaken... of course ambient temp too.

I Have very good temps. Using TT Ultra Extreme.

That was not my question.

Seems like I'm more stable at 1.36FSB volts x0.61 = 0.8296v VS 1.3FSB volts x0.65 = 0.845 Volts...

They work fine as long as they are plugged into the standard SATA ports.


Did you test Drive Xpert out with your drives already configured as RAID drives? What I was planning to do is setup RAID Stripe & then use Drive Xpert to Super Seed in addition as well as use a 3rd drive for backup.

They work fine as long as they are plugged into the standard SATA ports.


Did you test Drive Xpert out with your drives already configured as RAID drives? What I was planning to do is setup RAID Stripe & then use Drive Xpert to Super Seed in addition as well as use a 3rd drive for backup.
LOL! Do not even consider using those Drive Xpert ports for Raid. They suck in performance! Did you not see my comparison when using Raid 0 Drive Xpert VS Raid 0 on Native Sata controller?

Well... I stated earlier in this thread I had tried almost everything to make FSB past 430MHz stable with 8GB RAM. Including those 2nd Row Read to Read timings and all kinds of combinations...

However, turns out I did not try 5-6-6-15 the most obvious and simple timings instead of 5-5-5-15... LOL! I'm testing right now at 440FSB x9. 5-5-5-15 gives me an instant freeze in IBT. 5-6-6-15 seems to be humming along just fine.

Only thing I'm curious about now is if this stability will stick, or be lost after a few powerdowns and reboots. I can't understand I have not tried this earlier!
