Default Re: Paxville or Bust! The Supermicro X6DA8 Project

Going together.

I discovered that I am completely out of 80mm case fans, atleast ones that aren't complete I did order some to fill the 2x openings next to the IO shield.

A little config change.
2x 160gb Velociraptors in a raid0 on a LSI 9550 w/BBU & batt.

Used the last of the free "powerman" PSU's I got a while back.

Gotta love beige....

Not bad.

Winders 7...

CrystalDiskMark on the velociraptor raid0. The numbers were lower than expected, but I then realized this controller hadn't been powered up in a while and the battery was going through its test & charge process....which turns off write caching. I'll retest it when it finishes its song & dance.

This post made from it of course....I'll wrap it up when the fans arrive. I need to track down a couple more 9800GT's (they're cheap enough), for the 'netburst showdown' most things are on the same playing field.
