Woohoo! Our kind are spreading! The A64 club grows!

After reading JuiceZ's recent posts I found myself compelled to finally upgrade. My Athlon64 3200 1meg L2 and Gigabyte K8NS Pro will be in the mail today.

I wanted soc939 so I could keep my dual channel setup, but it was too much money for me and I didn't wanna wait anymore.

A64 time baby!

I had a few problems with it at first, 1st the hassle of installing the water block just took a little longer thats all, 2nd this board DOES NOT like my PCI RAID card one little bit i couldn't even get into the BIOS

But i am up and running now just need to install some drivers and crap.

doesnt that board already have builtin RAID ? You shouldn't need the PCI card.

EDIT: ya I just checked, you should have plenty of RAID options:
1 x UltraDMA 133/100/66/33 up to 2 Devices
2 x Serial ATA
and
2 x UltraDMA 133/100/66/33 up to 4 Devices Promise 20378 RAID controller
2 x Serial ATA, support RAID 0, RAID 1, and JBOD Promise 20378 RAID controller

Yeah twice, onchip + Promise, but i wanted to back up my data first. Oh well just as well it wasn't a great deal of stuff on This thing runs real cool too.

Hot day
XP @ 2.45GHz (1.85v) = 48C
A64 @ 2.2GHz (1.53v) = 30C

Oh I see, if you switch RAID controllers you gotta format the drives right? Damn that sucks bro, but as long as you didn't lose anything important that's good. And better not to use the RAID PCI anyway, less bus traffic probably.

And yes, the A64 runs considerably cooler than the AXP, it was one of the many reasons I'm making the switch myself, I was shocked how my father's A64-3000 sits around 28C all the time.
