New build, modified Gateway mid tower. - Page 11

alot of people are confused about how the pciE slots work on a board....

I don't know a board that can operate a 3rd card at 16x. Where most get confused is top of the line boards do offer multiple 16x pcie slots... but in multiple gpu operation 3+ its just not possible to run at 16x If your lucky you get 8x. If your not lucky<**** board> you get 4x in tri some boards dont even support a 16x/16x sli and only a 16x/8x on cheaper mb's

so here are typical usage scenarios

16x/16x
16x/16x/8x
16x/8x/4x
16x/8x

no board on the planet can operate at X16 X16 X16.

NF200's in fact do NOT give more PCIE lane's. they simply are a tweak and improve issue's and what not. ( im not entirely sure what they do, but i know they dont give lane's)

fixed my raid0 setup today... forget to enable raid in the bios before i created the raid set first time around... although the raid worked, performance was lacking. that and i installed the drivers it called for during O.S, install.

performance increase is noticeable.

Im starting to play with my ARF III overclock software, was kinda hidden on the asus dvd. No more having to go into the bios to adjust my clocks, and i can read any stats or voltage normally displayed in the bios.

Has some interesting monitoring features and on the fly cpu & chassis fan adjustments and profiles.

lol.... im pretty happy with this air cooler... The eco was just pissing me off most the time.



one difference is the eco spiked up way faster the this air cooler on load. it would drop faster as well... but i just didn't like those spikes. Its like it couldn't pump water fast enough through the block. The rad gets HOT as well after 30 min of load.. i'm definitely not going to use the setup as it is without modification... or just buying a different liquid cooler and selling this junk

Naaa its perfect... all the changes made in OS are not saved to the bios. so its perfect for testing clocks without having to constantly restart and there is no fear of having to reset my bios EVER. ahahahahahaha

This, never trust software with things like voltage. You could run everest/speedfan/coretemp/CPU-Z and get different Vcore, Temp and clock readings from each, and all different from the BIOS. But if you want to add that extra .1v because the software reads 1.3 instead of 1.4 go ahead, just don't get upset when you burn up a chip

I can only tell you this... it involves midgets and balloons. I can't say more at this point without compromising my patent.
