Asus A8S-X ID 63-0501-000001-00101111-082605-SiS756$A0217001_
BIOS DATE: 08/26/05 10:36:58 VER: 08.00.10
MB Chipset SiS 756, AMD Hammer
I need to know if the following hard drives will work?
wd caviar SE (WD1600AAJS, SATA/300, 160GB, 8mb cache)
WD caviar SE16 (500AAKS, SATA300/NCQ, 500 GB, 16mb cache)
SAMSUNG Spinpoint P (SP2504C, SATA300/NCQ, 250GB, 8MB Cache)
I am trying to go 160BG [or higher would be better] to replace my POS
Maxtor 80BG drive which appears to be failing.
I understand from previous postings that this motherboard will work
with sata and pata, but is there a website which details what kinds of
drives/interfaces will work with my motherboard? I already did some
searches and even checked ASUS's website but it seems cryptic and
vague to me.
Thanks for the help.
Re: Newbie:Which hard drive is compatible?
Yep, all of them.
I prefer the samsungs myself.
Yes, the critical bit for that question is
South Bridge: SiS965L
2 x UltraDMA 133/100/66/33
2 x Serial ATA, RAID 0, RAID1, and JBOD
That last line is the one that answers your question.
JBOD is just using the drive without RAID.
