    gPXE on NF4 Bios?

    See http://www.etherboot.org Basically gPXE has extended features over regular PXE. It can load files via HTTP instead of TFTP. It's also AoE (ATA over Ethernet) and iSCSI capable. I already tested it using the chainloading method where PXE tftp's the gPXE bootloader in, which then in turn boots Windows XP over the network via AoE. With Gigabit my diskless OS boot is pretty much at standard HD speed at around ~50MBps. Less heat/noise in the workstation chassis, barely any performance loss and centralized storage. Will be using it to build Mediaportal "extender" HTPC units around the house.
  2. Hi bios modders, I'm wondering if anyone has tried flashing their mobo's with a gPXE ROM? I went through the process of replacing the Nvidia PXE ROM with a gPXE ROM. Before I flash my mobo, was wondering if anyone has tried it already. I'm trying it on a Shuttle SN25P first, before doing my Ultra-D.

    Thermalright HR-05 SLI review

    EllisD, You're in Vancouver as well, anywhere local we can get the HR-05-SLI?

    Awesome! Good to hear. Thanks!

    I'll pick one up as soon as local stores up here in Canada get them in stock.

    Thermalright HR-05 chipset heatpipe

    OK no problem. I did email Thermalright with a picture of the Ultra-D from DFI's website, support's response was: If you look at the HR-05 SLI you'll see that it bends out of the way of the PCI-E slot. I assume that means that it will fit...

    This is a HR-05-SLI NOT a HR-05. Different product, this one SHOULD fit the DFI boards and allow use of BOTH PCIe slots.

    http://www.thermalright.com/a_page/main_pr...hr05sli_MCL.htm Any thoughts? Happy_Games think it'll work in a Ultra-D? Hopefully I would be able to orient the heatsink on the backside of my top pcie card since I have a AC Silencer....
  9. Thanks guys. I'll give the bios method a shot.
  10. Are they other programs that can control the chipset fan than ITE Smartguardian? For some reason I really don't like that program... =D I think I might have received a bum Evercool VC-RE making it a tad loud. My vidcard IS right on top of it though.
  11. Hi all, I'm trying to get my HTPC a little quieter since it's used to play movies as well as games in my theater room. Anyhow, I already replaced the fan with a Evercool VC-RE, unfortunately is didn't help all that much. At idle the chipset temps are 48C and the fan runs at 3182rpms. I was hoping to drop the fan down to 2500rpms or so. What's the best way of doing this? I tried looking through MBM but it doesn't seem to have any fan control. Someone mentioned changing settings in bios, but I have fully on at 55C and off under 28C, should I increase fully on to 60C and off under 40C or something? How does the spread work? Thanks in advance.
  12. I'm curious about this as well. AMD mainly mentions throttling stuff in its description of the driver. Is there a clean shell integrated affinity setting program? I wish I could just right click a executable and pin it to a cpu so that it always starts on that cpu. Is there any cmdline options?

    Moving from Single to Dual Core

    Angry_Games, Do you suggest installing the Dual Core drivers from AMD if you're overclocking and gaming? It sounds like it's mainly for throttling. What's your recommendations?

    chipset cooler, evercool or iceberg

    Finding it difficult to find the VC-RE up here in Canada. Will the VC-RD work?
