  1. no, you want the jumper on 1-2, I am amazed that you got it into windows in the 2-3 position, any board I have ever owned has never booted in the clr position, and the few boards that I have seen that DO boot in the clr position, only go to a BIOS settings screen that lets you reset the BIOS. Hope it keeps working for you.

  2. leave the jumper on clear cmos overnight, and take the battery out, then set it back the next day and put the batery back in and give it another go, also reseat your proc, and your ram, and your vid card. if that still doesn't go, then unplug your IDE devices and floppy and pull all the cards out cept the video.

  3. you will get hooked on the wawa, and then eventually have to move to phase change, if I had the $$ I would be there already. I ahve a custom water setup with DangerDen blocks and it rocks. I idle at about 30~31c and load @ 34C @ the settings in my sig, and when I max OC(and voltage) to bench i prolly max temp out @ 38~39c Water rocks, your setup is good enough to wet your appetite.

  4. click of death has been around for as long as I have been in the computer business (and I am sure as long as there have been harddrives) when your drives start clicking, if you have your case open, put your hand on a drive, and you will feel it when it clicks. . . that is the easiest way to tell when you have multiple drives in a RAID array. if you weren't in RAID, I would just plug the drives in one at a time to see which one was clicking.

  5. if your drive is clicking that is a bad sign. we usually call it "click o' death" if that tells you anything. It will get to a point where it will no longer be able to access data on the drive, and then to a point where it won't be able to even recognize in the BIOS.


    Everytime it clicks the read/write heads are returning to the home/park position and then going back to trying to read fromthe platters, hence your "pause" in system performance.


    If you have only had the drive for a few months, it is a defective drive. Get it RMA's through the manufacturer if you can't return it to the store you purchased it at. If you tell the store or the manufacturer that the drive has click of death they should swap it out for you with no more questions.

  6. personsally I would rather a RAID 0 for my OS drive. . . RAID 1 would slow it down tremendously, waste the space of 1 whole harddrive, and only be helpful in case of physical harddrive failure. If you have extremely important data, I might consider a RAID1 array for backups, but you will see overall performance increase by going to having your OS on a RAID0 array.
