I have to reinstall windows so my raid scores will go back to normal and I've gotta put my Ultra back in here and give the wife her GT back along with the old 754 setup.

I have one on my 754 setup and it works superbly... but I may try the xp-90 to see what it can do.

ManiaK,

 

Are you going to stripe 4 drives on that board? I heard that two of the ports aren't locked. Do you know if that's the case?

I will be striping 4 in the coming days - as for 2 of them not locked, that is probably true, but we'll find out. I'll let you know as things progress.

Please do let me know. I've really been interested in that board because I would like a 939 with an nForce chipset, AGP, and 4xSATA RAID . . . and that's the only board with all those features! B)

 

But check out this link. It's got a bunch of info and tips on that board. That's where I first read that SATA ports 1&2 aren't locked. That was a disappointment. . .

 

So be careful if you're going to start doing some serious overclocking with a 4x RAID array. ;)

Thanks for that link! It mentions a beta bios with up to 1.9v vcore. WHOO HOO! I think I'll need approximately 1.75v to get to 3ghz. Time to go download!

No problem . . .

 

Doesn't the board already support up to 1.75V?

xp90-c

agreed .. i had the Zalman ... nice cooler for moderate OC'ing and very quiet .. but the XP-90C with a decent variable speed fan is a better performance cooler :beer:

 

the Zalman still in use in daughters rig she's not a gamer just surfing and school reports

on air with a 3500+ Venice :tup:

Nice! I'm running stable right now at 2.86 but it gets pretty warm at load... Looking for some decent cooling now. I may go with a water cooling setup of some kind.

Did you remove the heatspreader on this one? I'm thinking I remember you saying it was a no-no but can't remember.
