Mr T

I think I'm in agreement with you (win2k on raid0/1) - but - Mine seems to have some sort of thermal problem First boot from cold gives bsod every time. Switch off and reboot might give bsod. Third boot (or second boot if it's left warming up with bsod from first boot) W2k starts perfectly. It will then start perfectly every time (20 in a row). Let it cool down for half an hour and it's back to square one.

I'm going to try a swap mobo, but I s'pose you've never come across this before?

Just installed replacement board and processor. Guess what? It's exactly the same.

Now disconnecting fans, one by one, next, will try some old ram.

Any ideas?

Note - have done everything else - no pci cards, different video, out of case start, one ram out, swap ram.

Symptoms:- First start (cold) gives bsod. Restart immediately, another bsod, Third start or second if I leave the macine running for a few minutes, perfect start. All subsequent warm restarts - perfect.

And if I put it next to a radiator and warm it up - starts perfectly every time.

Help - going round the bend on this.

Thought I should add...

These boards need an Abit mod before running P4 2.4 533

OK with other P4s

It seems that the reviewer and posters have had a number of problems with this board and I was just wondering if a new BIOS or anything has taken care of the Windows, RAID, and USB situation. It seems like a high rating for a board with this many problems.

The review scores indicate how a board fairs against its competitors in various categories. Even a problem board can get a decent score depending on where the problems lie.

It is also a good idea to read the review to find out if the reviewer had any problems.
