    [Buy] GA-EP45-UD3P - UK

    After 7 years of service my motherboard has gone, and will no longer post (too many hard resets I suspect). Looking for the next model up that will support my components. Thanks for looking.

    Great, mines a Sapphire Vapor-X but I'll give it a go anyway. I like the DS3P, shame it was before SATA3 and DDR3 but I guess that's how the cookie crumbles. My board version is 1.0 and I'm still using BIOS F4 because I'm scared to update it. Last time I had to boot from CD because I couldn't get it to boot from USB.

    Hi Rene, I have the same board as you but I use ATI 5770 gfx - can I still use your DSDT?

    Extremely low Geekbench2 score (675!)

    I rebooted without doing any changes and ran Geekbench again scoring 5733. Everything feels a lot more snappy, but I wonder what is causing the machine to get so bogged down after some activities like downloading a game on steam or extracting a large archive? Any thoughts? http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/2300248 Edit: I added the 'cpus=4' value to my boot.plist. Pretty much same result http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/2300394
  6. I have noticed that my machine isn't up to speed, I recently migrated from Win7 to Mountain Lion. I have used the same PC with OSX86 (10.4) in the past without problems, however I have added more memory and a difference graphics card since. My setup is as follows: Motherboard: GA-P35-DS3P Processor: Q6600 @ 2.4 Memory: 8GB (4x2) Corsair XMS2 PC8500 (C5) @ 1066mhz Graphics Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 (Vapor X) Sound Card: Edirol FA-66 (firewire) Here is my Geekbench output: http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench2/2300094 The one thing I have done which I need to change is that I have installed onto a 5400rpm drive.
