  1. Do a search here..this topic has been covered. Check the siliconimage website. I'm running onXp64 with a RAID1 set up as we speak (not that I bragging, becasue I'm having all kinds of issues...not related to teh RAID though) But it's up and going anyhow..
  2. My setting are stock also.. Auto by SPD. AM trying some more specific setting per OCZ support forum.. Will update, but any other advice is appreciated. Have reset CMOS and disabled USB KB and Mouse support.
  3. My system seems to run very hot also...I cannot get a Hardware monitor softaware app to work, but my Fan Controller has 3 temp sensors and I have a standard household digital thermometer to check also. The Ambient temp of the case seem to run around 37C mostly idle. Nothing OC'd... 3 case fans. (one front , one back, one side. Top and front vents also) Sensor much bearer to the Video card (but not attached to it) got as high as 58 during a 3DMark Demo. :sad:
  4. I was unable to get the one off the CD o work. It just showed 0's across the board. Is it XP 64 compat? (the link to the new one is not working for me ATM)
  5. I've a similiar problem..except that I can't my 2 sticks to work together at All... I've posted this at the end of a similar thread, but I'm not sure it fits there so rather than start a new one, I'll try again here and hope we can both get our problems solved at the same time.: I cannot get my OCZ 4001024ELPE sticks to play together ( I have 2 of them). I've put them in all combination of slots. They both work fine alone, and each works fine with a different stick of ram I have (Geil 512MB), but they simply will not POST if I have them both in at the same time. I'm not doing any over-clocking, just trying to get them to work as advertised. I was hoping spending a bit more money on brand name, quality, fast memory would get me around these issues...

  7. I've made progress! Went back to the 3114 controller, using 5&6. Set the BIOS setting to RAID "SATA RAID 0,1,0+1,5" for the 3114 controller. Used THIS Driver: http://www.siliconimage.com/docs/3114_x86_...4_raid_1231.zip ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Windows Setup found it and I've got XP64 up and running as we speak. Perhaps worth noting, I'm getting a "404 Not Found" error from the ATi website for the "South Bridge driver package" at http://support.ati.com/ics/support/DLRedir...=737&deptID=894 ------------------------------------------- So, these driver did Not work for me (I'll list them for reference, and so that perhaps someone else will have better luck with them if nothing else works): http://www.siliconimage.com/docs/3114_64_lraid_logo_1006.zip http://www.siliconimage.com/docs/3x12r_64_logo_1005.zip http://us.dfi.com.tw/Upload/Driver/Sil3114_x64drv.exe Best of luck to you. And thanks so much for those who've helped. If I come up with any updates, I'll post...
  8. Tried Raid 0 on the 3112 with no luck. I verified that I can get it to work using the 3112 in Non-Raid config. So at this point I'm assuming it's either a RAID issue with this MOBO or a driver issue with XP64 and the controllers on this MOBO. Either way I'm dissapointed. The drivers are there. They are available. They are not "beta" or unsupported. I'm not overclocking anything or asking it to do anything it's not supposed to.
  9. I'm not looking for a revolution, I'm just speaking my mind and engaging in forum conversation.
  10. While I'm far from happy with my board, I don't think there is much merit (legally) for a recall based soley on the Ati crossfire certification. Since the board doesn't CLAIM to be certified, it's certainly not misleading. The Standard seal of approval may indeed be a reason to choose one board over the other, but certainly not a deciding factor for a company to not offer a board. As a consumer, you can choose to purchase or not purchase a board of whatever name brand you choose. Should said company feel their board is good enough without ATI's stamp of approval, that's their call to make. The issue right now is the fact that nobody else is offering this board..and so obviously NO other board is certified either. Now..if there is a recall based on the numerous Other issues..I'm all for it..I'd love my product (which I paid a premium price for) to work 100% for all features advertised, and then of course to my expectations (and the relative benchmark expecatations set by similar motherboards). I strongly dis-like the idea of work arounds for new "high end" products. I am trying to get my RAID to work on the 3114 chip and in posting my problem, one solution offered was "don't use the 3114, use the 3112 on board instead." Um..wait a minute, I paid for this feature. I picked a board based on my needs and its claims. To just say "that feature doesn't really work right now, so try the other one instead" doesn't sit well with me. Look at it this way: You just bought a nice shiney 4 wheel drive SUV. New. Big ol' "4WD" sticker on it. You get it home and decide you want to drive across your front lawn, so you want try the 4WD feature. It doesn't work. The common consensus tells you "you'll never use the 4WD anyway since you only drive to work and back..dont' worry about it". True. You don't HAVE to use the 4WD. And you may never miss it. But is it acceptable to you knowing you just bought it?
  11. Ok, no luck with the 3112 either. Grrrrr. Let me recap my steps to make sure I'm doing this right.. Set BIOS setting for SATA controller to RAID. Create RAID (f4 during POST) Raid created using the 2 drives listed (the only 2 HDD in the system) set to RAID 1. Restart system. No errors lsited, raid set shows up as it should during POST. Boot from XP CD to start set up. Press F6 to specify drivers for SATA. Insert floppy, choose appropriate driver from disk. Press enter to use this driver and not specifiy any further. That's about it..then it says no drives found and isntall cannot continue. I guess I'll try RAID 0 and maybe narrow it down to faulty RAID 1 support on this board..
  12. I grabbed the 3114 and 3112 drivers from the SI website.. Just tried the 3114 with no luck. Will try 3112 shortly
  13. Have also now put the drives on SATA 1&2. No luck. When I turn of RAID features and just had one drive installed, I was able to proceed as normal..so I know it's not the HDD. Plus, I've ran the MaxBlast diagnostics with no errors. Has ANYONE gotten RAID 1to work in any instance?
  14. Further inspection I see that the driver disk is only showing the 3114 drivers. I checked the CD and see no refernce to the 3112 drivers. What am I missing? Did anyone get the 3112 driver download (Revision 1.2.3.1 ) from DFI to actaully succefully create a useable disk for installation? **UPDATE I see that download is only for the 3114 also..** Okay..plan D: Since there seems to be no download available for the 3112 Raid 64, I scour the CD. Nothing too promising, so I try the "5-8-igp_xp64_sb_25206" file in the "RDX200_Drivers" This extracts the files before running the installation process. I get the files extracted and canel the install. In the folder with the extracted files, I find "SRAID64a". This looks promising, as it has all the same files as the 3114 drivers did, except they say 3112. I put these files on floppy, and cross my fingers. XP install says "Silicon Image SiI 3x12 SATARaid Driver" Yippie! I load it up and continue. And once again get "not hard drives installed"... le sigh. I'm out of ideas.
  15. Ok, not what I had in mind.. It's sickening to have to just "not use" something rather than have a fix for it.. But at this point I just want the dang thing up and running as close to as I planned as possible. So..I switched the SATA cables to Sata3&4 on the 3112. Set the BIOS to "RAID" function, and created the Mirroed RAAID config with the raidbuilder. Gets me to the same point as the last try..not finding HDDs. Has ANYONE succesfully installed XP64 on one of these boards using SATA RAID?
