lol, i was just at that hardwareanalyst.com thread.
i didn't see anything that sparked a fire, but i'm waiting on MSI to return my calls.
Micro Center's "tech support" is a joke.
so i call the 800 number, and the guy says, well, you are running a raid pair right, becuase that board has IDE raid controllers, so it won't work stand alone.
i said, that's not true, because even if i did have an array, what would i do about a slave storage drive.
he said, "oh, well, that's all my database says."
