  1. Hi can you please tell me the specific corsiar ram you have listed for the GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard. There are a few ram configs by Corsair for this Motherboard. Which is the fastest you recommend? Product number would be helpful if possible. Also is the maximum ram for this motherboard 12gig or 24 gig? thanks, Miche Bre
  2. Matt, thanks very much for your post and Installation guide on Kalyway 10.5.2 I have a couple of questions: 1. I installed both Kalyway 10.5.2 and found the problem I had exactly consistent with Zephyroth 10.5.2 and 10.5.2 v2. Consistently I got Network errors stating that the wrong url was entered. This was a very wierd error. I Googled this problem to death, for days. Could never find a solution. Never could connect to my other Mac or windows machines. My MB is an Asus A8N-Sli board, with an AMD Opteron 185 CPU, 4 gigs of Corsair DDR 400. EVGA Nvidia 640mb Sli Video Card. My installation is very consistent with your explanation. Can you please tell me how you got around the Networking Errors. I also ended up getting a 3rd party Trendnet Nic card, as I gave up on the Forcedeth driver with onboard Nic. Also, I ended up going back to Zephyroth's 10.5.1 because of not ever being able to solve this Networking issue. I have been running stable for months with everything working on Zephyroth 10.5.1. But now since yesterday, I am continuing to crash and can't for the life of me figure out why. I realize these are two separate issues. Please forgive if I posted anything wrong or inappropriate here. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Miche Bre email: michebre@optonline.net
