Not the best, especially the "Uncached Write", but it's not like it really bothers me as the sys feels very responsive. Of course if there is a way to get better performance i'm open to it! ;)

Got everything working with the Asus P5B Deluxe! You need a SATA DVD or IDE/USB-converter to install though.


Great news. I am Planning to build the same setup ... A couple of questions:


1) Are both cores working w SSE3 under activity monitor ?

2) Have you tried using a regular IDE hard drive rather than SATA ?

3) I think that I saw a post by you elsewhere saying that you had this working with the new Semthex kernel ...?
