Honestly, don’t get a raid card unless you have some kind of server whose files you just can’t ever lose, if it is for gaming, it’s just not worth it, unless you have bucks to burn. Check abit -usa forums, CBF looking for it. I’m not sure I agree with EvilMonkey though. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Compared to the version that we recently tested, Abit includes 3 Firewire ports on the AV8. Common sense says that I want to set this to the Onchip options.

Abit’s AV8 motherboard
Particularly notable are the voltage adjustments for the Northbridge, Southbridge, and chipset – in addition to the expected voltage adjustments. We first tested uGuru in our review of the Abit KV8 Max3, and it continues to evolve as a very useful tool for the overclocker.

Setting up Raid on Abit Av8
Richard Hopkins, Oct 31, All of the recent Abit boards that we have tested have been set to at default, so be cautious in comparing review results unless the reviewer corrected the CPU frequency in testing an Abit motherboard. Hafta go back to an earlier bios?
Compared to the version that we recently tested, Abit includes 3 Firewire ports on the AV8. Discussion in ‘Abit’ started by John Geddes, Oct 30, The only surprise here is memory voltage, which is somewhat limited to 2. Try the abit web site to see if they have any instructions online.

You’ll need to choose a username for the site, which only take a couple of moments here. Honestly, don’t get a raid card unless you have some kind of server whose files you just can’t ever lose, if it is for gaming, it’s just not worth it, unless you have bucks to burn. In addition, the Athlon 64 FX chips are completely unlocked, so both higher and lower ratios can be selected.
Personally, I have an ide hard drive which has win2k and my linux boot partition on it, and then a software raid setup for my linux root daid home partitions. However, it is not a good idea, it is basically useless and will bog down raic system. Sun Jan 16, 8: Carl, Oct 31, You could have as many “pairs” as you like, and hence have both windows and linux on the same machine.
I’m not sure I agree with EvilMonkey though. The cpu overhead of software raid is not that great, but you can get a significant increase in throughput or redundancy, depending on your setup. I am trying to set up my Abit AV8 with: Mon Jan 17, 8: I have 2 disks striped in a raid 0 array using linux kernel software raid. Abit uses flat edge connectors for IDE connections, which does a very good job of removing xv8 interference from the bulky IDE cables.
John Geddes, Oct 30, The via raid controller is basically a software solution with a little bit of hardware assistance to help the windows driver. And if so, is there any way of having the PC boot from Disk 1? In due course, I would ideally like to add a single IDE drive using the onboard IDE-1 connector – but that can wait for now The problem radi that the IDE Raid array comes up as Disk 0, which I believe will mean that the moment I av one or more partitions on it, the first Disk-0 partition will be the one that is used for booting.
Abit AV8 Motherboard Specifications. Common sense says that I want to set this to the Onchip options. Left the abig setting to bootable add in cards, then faffed about with the settings for the raid card, which should show up during the post screens, after the mobo post screens.
Features and Layout Abit AV8: Well the short answer is yes, it will work. The overclocking controls are typically Abit in that they are a wonderful selection of voltages and frequencies to get the most from the K8T PRO and the Athlon I can’t comment on how raid 0 works with windows, but the manual that came with the motherboard had some instructions and a driver disk that you use early in the windows install process.
I install gentoo on it with “hardware” raid that the card had, but when the promise card failed to work with gentoo and I removed the card, I noticed that on the drives raid-0 that I had setup, only wrote to one drive, leaving the other drive untouched, this is probably because gentoo didn’t like the card, but still, the card should have abiit what it was supposed to, but failed.
