  1. I'm trying to comprehend how it is possible to stick in memtest86+ in a BIOS chip WITH the BIOS ... is memtest86+ actually small enough and there is enough space for it on the BIOS chip??? also, would it be possible to mod the BIOS so that if u press F3 or something like that it will boot to memtest86+ without having to go into the BIOS?

    I agree with the definition ... sounds very logical to me ... Also, my discreet math prof told us about Arrow's Theorem ... according to him, there are 4 basic "things" that a voting system has to satisfy to be considered a "good" voting system ... and it is pretty much impossible to make a system to correspond to that ... IMO, a perfect voting system = selection by unanimouse vote (like in death penalty cases)

    but there are people who want to force you to vote when u can't make up your mind ... like puffy's "vote or die" campaign (if he meant it literally) South Park doesn't try to "be" funny ... they try to show WTF is going on in simpler terms ... because when u ask a politician about (FOR EXAMPLE) if we need stricter gun control laws (clearly a yes or no, or a maybe answer, right?), he will say something along the lines of "we need to look at the situation and apply proper 'treatment'" ... this is not answering the question ... and South Park basically says what I said ... and I didn't try to be funny ...

    they don't influence votes ... if you saw the episodes, you'd get what they said very clearly ... 1.) PETA are eco terrorists (nothing new) 2.) Most people are taking the voting thing a bit TOO seriously 3.) We will always have to choose between a giant dousche and a turd sandwich 4.) People will force you to vote for SOMEONE 5.) Others will try to BUY your vote So, I don't see how it can swing MY vote or anyone "sane" (most dfi streeters are sane) ... they don't even TRY to swing anyone or anything. South Park is the daily show of what is going on in general (Daily Show is mostly politics) ...

    AGP/PCI lock

    Does the PCI bus have it's own clock generator like on nf2?

  15. yup the random Z's are place holders AFAIK, the others shouldn't be name unless someone named them

    Need Advice !!

    your RAM should do 230MHz FSB easy (1:1, 2-2-2-11) ANY socket cooler is 100% compatible (hole mount are another story) BIOS? anything of the 6/19 series should be very good (modded or otherwise) I would go with the latest official though and get a BIOS Savior just in case (and flash all BIOS to there)

    Raid 0

    well, it pissed me off, so here I am to rant ... RAID - Redundant Array of Inexpensive (some argue Independant) Disks RAID 0 is NOT a RAID array, since it doesn't fit the description ... RAID 0 has the highest chance of failure than any other RAID array ... compare RAID 0 to RAID 1 and RAID 5 RAID 0 - 2 hard drives RAID 1 - 2 hard drives RAID 5 - 3 hard drives RAID 0 will fail than drive1 OR drive2 fails, so take the failure rate of the 2 drives and add them ... remember IBMs "Deathstar" series? RAID 1 and RAID 5 fail when TWO hard drives fail at the same time, take the failure rates of 2 hard drives and multiply them ... RAID 0 DOES give better performance, but is it at all usefull to a Desktop PC? RAID 0 in a home computer is like a 5000 dollar workstation video card in a database system ... it is simply overkill. All RAID 0 does is give you better loading times in games, and after the textures and whatnot are loaded into memory (video or system), hard drive is barely accessed (maybe to store logs, screenshots, etc.) IMO, the performance of a RAID 0 array isn't worth the failure ... especially to people who have sensitive data on their computers, which seems to be a quite good number on these forums.

    Raid 0

    sound, is it true that when Voodoo3 card came out that it cost 500USD at the time of release? I believe someone was arguing that the vid card prices WAY before were something like today and that we shouldn't complain ... I dunno for sure how this was, since I wasn't on the scene before august 1999 (when I started reading stuff, geforce2 ultra was already avail at the time)

    sound, do you welcome 2x6800U in SLI? there is also a cost vs. performance thing going ...

    Any of BIOSes with more stable Vcore???

    "stability" of anything on the motherboard is NOT controlled by the BIOS at ALL

    Raid 0

    ExRoadie, my point EXACTLY what stated above this post It's just that there are people who think that RAID0 is a "must" especially if they have "mission critical" data ... RAID0 is like computers in general, it is not "the end of all ends" ...

    Hope for those without BH-5/6 etc.

    on buffered memmory bandwidth ... not unbuffered ...

    Raid 0

    Also, about ATTO and HD-Tach, are they testing random reads or sequential read? because then it's like using the "less than X dollars" and "upto X amount" ... upto and less than are very vague ... too vague IMO so, PCI bus, on regular desktop motherboard can handle UPTO 133MB/sec ... does it actually go that far? who knows ...
  25. slavik

    Raid 0

    Not bashing ... what I'm saying is that the performance increase is not worth the risk of losing data ... especially if u need it ... it's like before the 90nm A64 ... was the price of socket939 justified with the rather small performance increase? Answer is NO, it wasn't ... RAID 0 is a very similar situation, besides the fact that it's not a "true" RAID, since there is no redundancy ...
