    I realised temps were causing a problem for me, my NB was blisteringly hot underload @ 62c and the Southbridge was not much better, so I decided to take the heatsink off while I was refilling and...

    Yeah Opera does rock, always has. Sure one or two sites act strange with opera, but nothing bad enough to be intolerable, photobucket has always been fine for me. I did try firefox and just found...

    Thanks for the reply, I expected it'd be a pain. Oh well new board time, but I have to say this P5K-P has been great.

    Just a question....

    What is the likelihood of being able to fit a 9800GX2 to the P5K-Premium with all six SATA slots occupied? No chance?

    Thanks for the headsup scaramonga. :toast:

    I'm running 0402 now and so far it seems fine, no major differences in the BIOS that I can see, but I didn't have SATA issues with the old BIOS anyway.

    This always makes me laugh, the word soccer was coined by an Englishman from Oxford called Charles_Wreford-Brown, incidentally he was also captain of the England SoccerSquad in the 19th century.

    Yup seagates are known for that, IIRC they don't use (AAM) Acoustic Management like most other drives... it does make them a little faster but also noisier.


    Sounds like an interesting project,...

    Is that at me?

    I think for running at 400 4:5 (1066 Strap) NBVCore is of utmost importance; I used 1.65v set in Bios which gives 1.68v when measured by a multi-meter. Once you move onto the 1333 strap the board...

    Good work there PCCrim, I especially like how you've rigged up some ghetto mod on the GPU for better cooling, how much of an increase did that give you? and was that 1.75v vcore for the 4.9GHz...

    Yes 4:5 always needs much more juice than 2:3, but 1:1 needs less than any other so you're both right.
