Here we see the multiplier is downwards adjustable from 6 to Unlike many platforms it seems Intel platforms do not require as much timings tweaking. The latter has made huge inroads recently, but if you’re stubborn and feel that “Intel processors go best with Intel chipsets,” that’s okay too.

The CPU voltage adjusts from 1. I feel that Intel platforms should provide more divider options than these, to help those with RAM that just won’t run above its rated speed.

Most hardware enthusiasts go over board on their computer, whether it’s necessary or not. If you run into any problems, just drop us a message on the forums. Looks good though, I wonder who the first to make a 2gb drive will be. I feel that Intel platforms should provide more divider options than these, to help those with RAM that just won’t run above its rated speed.
Awd-max see how the board fares later on. Also, I noticed my question concerning the SATA port multiplier compatability never realy got answered fully ; However, I DO realize that you guys are probably very busy: Aw9d-jax selecting a motherboard, the chipset is the most important factor.
Maybe in the end we just realized that the performance potential aw9dmax the board merited an overlook of some design shortcomings. I hope abit will change this in the shipping versions as this overvolts the CPU at stock speeds. In addition there are plenty of Solid state capacitors around the high frequency CPU ensure a sufficient and stable power supply. Convenient and easy-to-use fine tuning from within a self-explanatory BIOS menu.
RAM voltage is given a respectable 1.
Special copper strips designed to spread heat away from key components Purpose: Right now, any gamer worth his or her blaster cannon is looking at the Intel Core 2 Duo processor, so the next question is what motherboard to team it up with? I’m pretty sure it was Seagate. If nothing else this board will elicit an hours worth of conversation about the art of layout design along with providing options the customer wants at this time like an additional PCI slot.
Features and Layout Click to enlarge Abit designed a board that you will either love or hate. A BIOS flash sorted this for me though. The CPU voltage adjusts from 1. Most integrated components are accessible aw9dmax headers, which is not the best way to go in our opinion.
I’m surprised that Seagate didn’t patent this technology!

I’m pretty sure it was Seagate Quote. Unlike many platforms it seems Intel platforms do not require as much timings tweaking. Keeps your system cool by extracting heat from the back of the PCB.
This is not a criticism of the AW9D, but rather inherent in the platform itself. Building a “kick ass” PC isn’t too hard, so long as you’re selective in what you pick up and aren’t afraid of a little free tweaking to get it running smooth.
