I have had my E up at 3. Do not believe anyone who says this board will not overclock. I just tried now. I also have other Enclosures here and tried those, it is still slow. So I tried an enclosure of a 3.

This is the most interesting part.

Right now, I installed Ubuntu in my External hdd and it boots so slow 5mins? Just wanted to set the record straight.

I ask that because I know some devices have their own controllers which can conflict with the onboard ones. I just sent the ticket to them, but if they ask me to return the board for replacement.

I dunno, it still doesn’t work. The usual fast, competitively priced service from Overclockers Do you have a different USB Device you could test boot from, or can you remove the drive from that one and boot from the drive only? This cutting-edge processor offers significant performance boosts and provides an overall more energy efficient platform.

Lovely little board little being the operative word – I did not know this was a micro ATX board! I hope some people who has this board can confirm that it is normal.

I removed the hard drive from the enclosure and ran it through one of my SATA ports.

Couldn’t install windows 7 on an ssd with more than 2gb ram installed Also as a budget board I didn’t expect a large overclocking headroom, and this is g31m-fs2l I got.

They haven’t replied yet. If an ETA is available it will be displayed on hover. I’m already tempted to check it with hcipset 10k WD raptor to see if it is the same. Got mine RMAed but I’m still waiting it will have the same problem. If this is normal, I guess that’s what I get for what I pay for.

Thought this board was a better clocker than it actually is. Hmm, is there a jumper on the back of the drive?

Once it is loaded, the sytem itself is much faster that the old one, but the slow loading of the boot image and initramfs from the flash is KILLING me, since I am constantly rebooting to test new code on multiple configs.

If you have a full lenght double slot pci-e gfx card the 2 of the 4 sata headers are a no no. I think USB 2. Would definitely recommend a fan on the chipset heatsink – it runs very warm if you’re using the onboard video.

It is normal as a normal hdd connected to a SATA port. I think it runs SATA 3.

Do not believe anyone who says this board will not overclock. I have had one of these for a while.
