This benchmark was written long before anybody considered running two cores on a desktop system so I’m at a loss as to why the C2D performed as well as it did, but, aside from the apparent imbalance that’s not a bad thing. You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. I wonder if the hack to get a Socket Xeon running n a board will work with this board. I too left this thread a long time ago, but that was because i ditched the mobo and got something more OS X friendly! The memory timings are very picky. With great dissapointment I gave up and installed XP. The boards themselfs are fairly inexpensive.

Posted July 18, Many newer games now take full advantage of dual core processors, and the C2D line of CPUs is quite feisty even when compared to it’s higher clocked chipser core brethren. Other users are reporting the same and it’s a miracle if you get above ! I had everything working didnt try sleep [no need] but after a while it cnipset to randomly freeze.
Unfortunately that did not work, I got as far as apple logo with no-entry sign, and with various different selections in install, gave different errors. Oh dear, more problems.
4coredal-vsta I knew that this upgrade path would only offer moderate improvements to daily use, and that I would more than likely take a hit in gaming performance. Im not giving up that easy! Links to ASRock pages on the wiki site: After I bought an iPhone I found myself longing for the Mac experience. It is also a very cool running CPU and it’s very easy and cheap to get hold off. Return to General Old Hardware.

I’ve managed to get almost everything running with 4coredual sata-R2. Mem timings for A64 were 1t. Setting the board up was easy, yet also frustrating.
Having seen first hand what effect accidentally running a GT in a X2 slot had on graphics benchmarks I was quite concerned with what a X4 slot would do to 4coredual-vst performance of my current ATI pro. I mean my old q machine will run anything from 98 to 10 and that just uses a more standard gigabyte board.

S doesn’t look like it’s going away any time in the near future. DaFrigN, did you ever resolve the black screen after Apple logo issue? Thought I would add links to relevant patches: I had to move my windows partition to the right of the disk using Gparted and create my leopard partition on the left of the windows partition.
Had to remove them to have a funcional desktop.
Same goes with the PCI Express bus, anything above creates problems. First post 4coredualvsta here. Any help would be sweet. Lastly, and this is the possible show stoppereven though just about every on-line retailer lists it as a X16 PCIe slot it is in fact limited to X4!

I’ll try my progress all logged here. Maximum addressable memory is 3. This board does that and then some.
