I appreciate your willingness to help..
I have always dealt with Michaela Koert...he seems so helpful,but probably tired of hearing from me..
When I had my evga board,I sent all the logs,etc..so I was told to rma the bbu...got it back..all was well like a week,then bbu dropping in and out,high heats in bbu..not able to manage it from storage manager..same as before
I built this Asus P6TD Deluxe..same exact thing..started a ticket..once again,they thought the bbu..was just about to rma then I tried to put the card in a x16 slot..works like a charm now:)
No more warnings,bbu I am able to access from storage manager,always shows..
Its so weird as in my x8 slot it worked but had all thoses bbu problems on both the evga and asus board..
One thing I have noticed with this asus board though is my drive scores are about 50-75 mb/s slower then the evga board..
Guess maybe it must be the pcie throughput or something,but this thing is stable,and have the lastest firmware for the lsi,storage manager,and driver..
So..this board seems to be ok with the lsi firmware,but has only 2 x16 pcie..and one x8..which doesn't seem to like it the 8x
Lucky for me,I have only one video card..Next project will be an HD 5970..
I miss my evga board though..but been able to OC this ok,and seems solid in build,and process..
My poor lsi card,..its been upflashed,down flashed,bbu connecting,disconnecting for days on end randomly,bbu recording high heats..warning,warning,warning..and it is still ticking..better then ever...lol...
I almost resorted to the bbu external mount kit,which is kinda rare..luckily doesn't look like heats an issue anymore..
Thanks for posting..I am still hoping a fix for the evga as I would like to stick it back in here..
I have been looking at the secure erase,wiper process,etc...
I am wondering how often one should do this,or if maybe my loss of speed could be related to this..reloading os a few times,etc,,
Any tips on good utilities for this,etc much appreciated..:)
Thanks Much Computurd..
Your always so willing to help..:)
Have A Great day..
