Only Intel’s power hungry server chipsets support ECC memory. I kept a spreadsheet of the power usage numbers, but don’t have it handy at the moment. Wed Jul 08, 7: Yes a great thread which I’ve been lurking since it first appeared. What is multi core integer speed?

Thanks for the info.

Eventually I’ll post my Biostar AG findings over there. CPU load is negligible. I know that’s a loaded question. What is multi core integer speed? I dont anticipate more that 3 HDD eventually, maybe even a max of 2, only a7600g for now.

UKR-User, 3 months ago. That reasoning was golden. I asked about Sempron ECC support here. Best value for money – Value for money is based on real world performance.

In reality, I probably videi need the fan, but the “downward” orientation of the SI allows all the other motherboard components to get a little bit of airflow as well. The motherboard and CPU pull a lot of power when they are first powered on. Thanks for your kind sharings. Otherwise, most mATX boards within similar price range have no ability to control more than a single fan.


Especially considering the ECC support. And that’s with no fan, just sitting on my desk.

Sat Dec 29, 1: I got mine from ebay. However, there may be a way to get the drives to do a “staggered” spin up. I biosttar see that the large fan is at the top of the PSU, am I correct in that I can flip the PSU over and have this fan pointing downwards and into the case?

I am reading everything I can. The Biostar beat the Gigabyte by a few watts. The DVD burner will make a negligible difference when idle. Matt, Thanks for the info.

Wed Jul 22, 9: The one with the nVidia chipset has a fan on the northbridgethat’s often a sign that the chip runs hot, which implies it uses a lot of power. When I activated the interface, idle power consumption went up a bit more, around watts. I haven’t biostad had a chance to play with these yet though. I went through the BIOS, and made the following viceo I’m assuming that you are right, and the “smart” fan controls only affect the one four-pin header.

It was getting rather annoying to find all the mobo manufacturer aside from Asus not willing to add the extra bit to the memory channel for ECC, but it’d be nice if Biostar would in their future mobos.

Furthermore, an additional temp-controlled case fan may improve system thermal dissipation. The charts also illustrate overall performance, popularity and rank. Also, for what it’s worth, that’s an chip: Hopefully that will change.
