Intel 3.06Ghz 800Mhz FSB HyperThreaded CPU: Good read!

What kind of RAID controller are you running? I was under the impression there was a serious lack of decent SATA controllers. I was only aware of the Silicon Image and Intel's onboard one were true SATA controllers.

that is not the only BIG thing that intel is not going to change for few months. Intel Centrino Mobile tech. is working really good. we have started selling them at work and they are Niiiiicceeee, with two thumbs up. in fact i like them much MUCH better than p4-M's. My coworker liked them so much that he bought one right away.

I did a bit of reading on those the last few weeks someplace online, I believe it was ZDNet...
(Better power consumption & cooler running, correct?)
A LOT better cooling, and a LOT SMALLER battery that will last about the same ammount of time as the big ones. it also runs at 1.6GHz. i have thested the 1.3 Ghz one though but it feels like working on a 2.4 Ghz Desktop. it has ATI r. 9000 Mobile, and a SXGA screen. (1280x1024 native resolution) and bluetooth, wireless lan, intel pro nic.
even at Ultra Low power mode (600Mhz) it still runs very well. with windows XP it doesn't feel like 600 Mhz at all, everything works just fine.
i thing it is because if the 1MB cache on the CPU. these ones make other laptobs look like a joke. especially the ones with p4's.
this is what going to be hot for next few months for sure.

It is only for laptops, Centrino is not the name of the CPU. it is the combinition of the CPU, motherboard chipset and the onboard lan, wireless lan, and the BlueTooth. if any of that is missing intel will not let the manufacturer put the Centrino logo on it.

the specs in my signature (I haven't bothered changing them yet) show an AMD Barton 3000+ system, only after a month did I ditch it and am now awaiting my Intel setup.
I thus far have received the OCZ Dual Channel RAM, the Zalman 7000 HSF and the P4P800 board...waiting for the processor, 2.8 "C" P4 (great! lol).
After just fooling with the P4P800 board itself, I will NEVER go back to AMD again. I mean, the i865PE chipset on the p4p800 is ready for Prescott (so i'm prepared for Intel's next chip design), and thanks to Asus, you can enable the so called "only in i875 chipsets" PAT feature, which is now 100% available on i865PE chipsets called HyperPath or "Memory Performance Mode"
double the FSB, 700 Mhz more clock, and HyperThreading and now HyperPath technology....no thanks AMD, I'm staying with Intel.

we have tried 400/533/800 fbs cpu's on it and tried it with all kinds of memory configs (ddr 266/333/400/ tried single and dual) but no post. all of our VGA cards are AGP4x though.
anybody has got this mobo working?
