On the surface Gigabyte appears to have put together one of the most user friendly purchases that has been seen to date. The plus side to SATA are the cables. I can see 3 or 4 USB ports in use and those of us who may want 5 or 6 could utilize the motherboard headers for a drive bay media port or a case with front USB ports. To berate a point: Joined Dec Posts I like to be able to set the board back to basics especially if overclocking. You can put any device on any channel but the promis raid chip is not really designed for optical drives.

Time to head north and bump into the AGP slot and there is no concern with the ram lifters bumping into an installed video card. All is working now.
Yes arid is an art and those that do it well have an extreme amount of knowledge about the nuances of a motherboard. The BIOS settings were kept as close to conservative or default value. It seems that we consumers could live without at least one which would give motherboard engineers a bit of working room…and would you really miss ONE PCI slot?
The primary, once feeling better, takes over.
Gigabyte had a successful run with the popular 7VAXP motherboard. I’m planning to set it as raid 0. Joined Jul Location Perstralia Posts Bios updates fixed that.

Installing the external SATA card would leave just one. On the surface Gigabyte appears to have put together one of the most user friendly purchases that has been seen to date.
Larger northbridge heatsinks are becoming more common on motherboards today to satisfy the needs of overclockers. Why are these reviews so in-depth? Joined Dec Posts The northbridge fan is from Dynaeon Industrial Company It is 40x40x20mm. Every time I connect my hard drive to raid connector 3 or 4 with bios setup: Anyone could advise if it is safe operation?

The time now is I recommend putting the HDD’s on the promise controller and the optical drives on the regular channels. The PCI slot brackets are a-plenty.
Chew each bite 32 times and always floss between meals. I eventually got mine working. That is one more cable than typically included with new motherboards. You may then rzid able to get the drive recognised.
If you place a CDRW on the raid channel it will be limited to 16x write, reguardless of what speed drive you have.
It sounds like a good mobo for the money. I wish all motherboard manufacturers would locate the power connection there. Perhaps Gigabyte is thinking the second drive is at the other side of the PC case.

Those that think there are now four SATA headers are in for a disappointment. Anyone had troubles with this? Again the results are ga-7faxp-a expected.
