    Default Bloody friggering motherboard!! Now @ 2500

    Wanted to upgrade to a 1meg cache chip but donít want to go Intel or go Opteron, so I went mobile. Well the blasted board is a pain in the ass to get up and running. You would think SATA would be supported as an installable RAID drive but NO, friggign ASUS's tech support thinks it should be used as a storage medium. Canít install the blasted drivers properly so I can get the Raid monitoring, have to disable it, install the OS on a separate drive and then ghost it over. Oh well too frigging tired to reinstall and ghost right now.

    Board is a K8N-E Deluxe

    Bah just need to vent

    Got it up and running. Still not perfect but getting there. Some benches just to ballpark what this thing can do.

    Right now I am on the 1.05 bios. OC is decent but I think the ram is holding me back. OCZ 3200 but these came out so long ago they are detected at 333 bus and are supposed to be overclocked to 400.

    OC 2400
