Been a while since I had new gear to play with and had the time away from work to give the new gear some attention
  • Intel Core i7 2600K L038A660
  • Gigabyte P67A-UD7

First pairing will be with 256GB Crucial RealSSD C300 on Marvel SATA 6G port 6 and 2x2GB A-Data 2000X DDR3-2000Mhz 9-9-9-24 memory modules, pretty old kits from Elpida BBSE days.

While I bench and test the latest gear, I always kept to my very old 24/7 main work rig but it's time to upgrade the 24/7 main work with more up to date gear and finally after many years a new pc case - Lian Li PC-7FNWX with USB3.0 ports and side window.

Old 24/7 main work rig ~6yrs old now:
  • Pentium 550 3.4Ghz Prescott
  • DFI 875P-T motherboard
  • Gecube 9800Pro Extreme PCI
  • 1GB Kingston KHX3200 Winbond BH-5
  • Pioneer DVD-RW IDE
  • 80GB WD IDE
  • 8x 320GB Seagate 7200.8 ( 2x

DFI Hybrid P45-Ion-T2A2 LGA775 + Nvidia MCP7A Ion

Posted 13-01-2010 at 03:38 AM by eva2000

When DFI announced their hybrid 2 systems on 1 motherboard design, I was ecstatic because I've always wanted such a system. Smaller footprint for 2 systems just what my lack of horizontal room space needed! So I'm happy that this DFI Hybrid P45 Ion-T2A2 motherboard arrived. Thanks DFI!

Looks like before I start testing, for MCP7A Ion system part, I'll need to grab a set of DDR2 SO-Dimm memory modules and a power adaptor converter for Australian plugs for the power cord.
