    My new core 2 duo machine is working now

    I have been using giga-byte motherboard since 1999 when I also started setting up my first raid, they have always worked well, I really trust them, the only hard disk crash I have had was on my boot disk, a W D, it was 3 years old.

    My present machine is a gigabyte Royal 955 chip.

    If I buy me the new 965P-DQ6 mbo. I can use for cpu core 2 duo E6700, one step below the most expensive cpu.

    I take my present memories 4 * 512 corsair xms2 extreme 6400 and put them in the new card  (and buy me 2 more of them to the old card)

    I buy me a new ATI graphics card, maybe one from the 1900 series and move my present Nvidia 7800 gtx to the other machine.

    The built in realtek audio has worked well in my present mbo, I try if it will work as well in the new mbo.

    One ordinary dvd-burner, waiting for blue-ray and for al to support blue-ray...

    I will use both machines with AL installed, using the 1000 LAN between them and block the new machine from internet but have the possibility to go out on the net if needed.

    I will have both machines on the floor, under my working table, and use a monitor switch (thanks for the tip) for one of the monitors to be able to use  that one on both machines.

    After that is done I have a LOT of gb to move to the new machine, cant take the risk that raid 0 is working the same on the new card so i will move the captured films disk by disk.

    Comments ?

    Re: Ok, I will build one more machine, how about this?

    Both threads together, we are discussing xp 64 in another thread.

    If I put the bob on my old machine, I can use my old capture favorite from Studio, here called EZ Capture, to capture analog video.

    I can then move the files by LAN to the 64 system and work with the projekt there, very interesting.

    In my new machine, with a bootdisk only for 64 and no other programs exept AL, I can try different configurations to test 64.

    I will wait for the new Abit.

    It's awesome and if I judge from the one I have for almost 4 years and gave me NO problem, I will wait.

    One thing I thought right now, is that while it's Quad Core Ready and if those processors will have 1066 bus then the memory bus is limited at 800.

    You will ask: if at the future-future you will change your CPU to a Quad Core are you going to change your memory also? Confused [*-)]

    It's just a suggestion, of course I will not tell you what to do.

    I am just remind you that the 975X chipset is better.

    Say that I never told you anything, you asked for suggestions.

    Re: Ok, I will build one more machine, how about this?

    yes, I know that 975x should be better but I spoke to gigabyte today, they told me that it wasn´t only the chipset that was the thing, the mbo must also be able to handle the thing that the new cpu demands less power than the ones we have been used to, they thought I go fo the 965 chip.

    Re: Ok, I will build one more machine, how about this?

    The motherboard should arrive here about 15 september, hopefully the cpu will arrive too, I have done some reading in the meantime, this was interesting, 775chipsets-board does not support memory speed ddr2 800 mhz, just 667, my corsairmemories are 800 and works very well at my present mbo (also gigabyte)

    Seems to me this was a very well done test, really gets "to the bottom" of things we want to know.

    Could get really hot under that table, and noisy too - you might want to see if you get the hot air away from where you are working. I ended up putting my box on the other side of my desk - quieter, and no hot air bouncing back in my face. Slightly inconvenient for loading DVDs into the burners, but for me it was worth the trade-off.

    Yes, I have already noticed the heat, we had a very hot summer here in Sweden, had to buy a new tower to my old machine, I will use that tower for my new, it´s a Kandalf Termaltake with a lot of fans but it is much more quiet than my old tower, must systems today have automatic fan speeds depending on the temperature, now when winter comes, I think it shouldn´t be a problem, we´ll see next summer.

    Maybe I cannot use the old tower to my "old" mbo but I thought, taking away 4 hard disks would lower the temperature a bit.

    For the new machine, the core 2 duo cpu is needing less power and should not be as warm as my 3,4 HT I hope.

    After all , this a test I am doing, should be very interesting I think to see how everything will work.

    Re: Ok, I will build one more machine, how about this?

    Ok, so vista rc1 is currently being downloaded to my machine, both versions 32 and 64 totally 7 gb iso-files, my internet connections works well.

    The stuff for the build has now arrived here to sweden, feels that I am living on the moon sometimes.

    Will do the build in the beginning in next week and hopefully the first testreport will be published in the end of next week.

    regards

    Still waiting for the mbo, it should arrive in the beginning of the week, testing Vista RC1/32 b on another machine meanwhile.

    The setup program will not start, opsystem tells me "unexpected error" , pity

    Someone has any ideas?

    Liquid components is able to run, check 3d is inside that, I will try to run it.

    Trying some installs, tdk pro tells me "error, unknown opsystem"  however hfx pro seems to be able to install.

    Check 3d stops after running exactly 20%, need to stop the test screen with the 3 finger command.

    This is why XP is the OS of choice for Liquid.  It is known to work.

    I tried to use XP 64 when I got my first Athlon 64.  As soon as I started to install the software I frequently need and use, I got that same response - the software I wanted to use would not install on that OS.  So, I stuck with XP (32-bit) even though I've been running a 64-bit CPU.

    Let´s see if we get any support from Avid in this test project.

    However, I must tell you all, the machine I am running the test on right now is a rather good machine (= my wifes)

    She has Never had so extremly good look at the screen as it is now, this is really good, I really hope we get support from Avid to get this thing going on Vista, I think this was worth waiting for.

    Re: Ok, I will build one more machine, how about this?

    I think I am on pretty safe ground by saying there will be no support for Vista until Ver. 8 of Liquid. I don't think there will ever be any support for XP 64.

    You will not get any support from Avid if you are trying to run the current version of Liquid on any OS but XP Pro or Home.
