I recently got an A7N8X Deluxe board and it is working pretty well..\n\nA7N8X Deluxe (rev 2.0 bios 1003)\n2 sticks 512M 3200 Samsung RAM\n2800+ cpu (using 200 fsb at 10.5x with ram set to 100%)\n2 WD 120G 8M cache HD's\n\n.. sometimes when I boot into WinXP, the 2nd drive is not visible in\nWindows (I have the drives on the same IDE channel, one master, one\nslave)... when I reboot, it solves the problem\n\n.. sometimes when I leave several apps opened over night, the pc slows\nto a crawl by morning... I am able to close the apps, but the pc is\nstill very slow until I reboot.. apps like newsbin, outlook ie, etc...\nnothing intrense like video editing...\n\n.. In general, is it better to have the 2 Hard Drives on the same\nchannel or different channels? (for HD performance)\n\n.. I see that bios 1005 is available - think I should go for it?
