We had been very pleased with the revisions of the A8V we had evaluated, so we had great expectations of Revision 2. When we talked with Asus about why they would leave out such a key feature of the VIA K8T PRO chipset, we were told Asus had concerns about the stability of the feature, and would not release a board with a lock until they were confident of the stable operation of the feature. Of course if you do not want to boot from the array then you may install the drivers later if needed. The passive heatsink Asus slap onto the A8V should be fine for regular use, but I’d recommend overclockers in the crowd get an active heatsink for this puppy. I am three steps away from finding the inspiration in pursuing a fine spiraling career in alcoholism!

Could it be this drive is formatted as a dynamic drive and not a basic drive. For that reason, we did not believe it was fair to AnandTech readers to review an excellent design that they might never see in production. Practically this means that a Asux which is not recognised on BIOS level will definitely not be recognised by windows whereas the opposite may be true e.
If you could successfully aus up the Array s at that level then the most important has been done, the next step being the installation of windows by using F6 to install the needed Promise controller v1.

[SOLVED] Sata Raid configuration on Asus A8V deluxe
And it comes from THIS webpage! All works well now- and I am stuffing the aaus full of odds and ends and such. You know- the newer boards have SATA2 sockets to spare. While both the socket Athlon64 and Athlon64 FX chips offered fast 64 and bit performance, the roadmaps were pointing to an impending socket Athlon64 release that would eventually replace both solutions.
Noteworthy are the ratios in fine 0. Aside from the need for speed. As a consumer, I’m sure you can understand that no one likes to buy into a short-lived CPU form factor remember the now defunct socket Intel Williamette? Too often, we forget to mention that Asus is a huge proponent of Wi-Fi, and most of their boards include Wi-Fi capabilities.
Not sure if aaus OS would have saw that drive or not, as I didn’t even try that. I had been using the wrong driver all along and there was no possible way to get it to work!

All Athlon64 processors have ag8 memory controller built into the processor, yet the VIA K8T Pro Northbridge still gets quite toasty during operation. Remove Advertisements Sponsored Links.

I am not a fan of Realtek ALC AC’97 audio, but I have to admit that manufacturers have raised their standards with the release of the 7. Basically my main questions now are Log in Don’t have an account? While we did receive several prototypes with impressive performance and a working rald, Asus US did not give us the go-ahead that these interim designs would ever become production boards.

Asus tells us that Revision 2. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.
Along with this problem, I also have the issue with my OS reading said drives, as I gave up on having both raid options, and set them up for raid0 performance and tried to install OS, I installed drivers as said from floppy, but XP still says cannot install it says it cannot find harddrive.

Socket 939 Roundup: Battle at the Top
Some will hate the floppy edge connector, but we liked getting it out of the way, and the floppy is also a connector many users don’t use any way. The IDE connectors are in our preferred upper right edge of the board. If so, you have to reformat it to get it to work properly. I did notice something that now makes me wonder if i have the right driver installed tho.
Now, if AMD is comfortable with picky journalists judging its newest multi-million dollar CPU roll-out on an ASUS board, then that certainly underscores something consumers should be taking note of.
