Results: HD Tach HD and USB 2.0HD Tach HD
Our second file system test is a bit more basic, but still an important data point to look at.
We again see a nice jump in burst rate, but in this test a spinning drive is not really going to be held back by a SATA 6G interface.
HD Tach USB 2.0
As mentioned before, AMD has had a bad reputation for all kinds of I/O issues with their southbridges. The SB850 has fixed pretty much all of these issues, but it is still good to check out if it is implemented correctly on all of these boards. For these tests I use the Sharkoon USB 3.0 drive bay and one of the WD Caviar Black 1TB drives.
We again see very little fluctuation here in performance, and USB 2.0 really is maxed out.
i think you need to upgrade
i think you need to upgrade your case there josh 😛
Yes, it is old. But it still
Yes, it is old. But it still is an average sized ATX case… and dusty. Hey, we are on a budget here!
Wonderful items from you,
Wonderful items from you, man. I’ve remember your stuff prior to and you are just too magnificent.
I really like what you’ve obtained here, certainly like
what you’re stating and the way during which you say
it. You are making it enjoyable and you still care for
to keep it sensible. I can not wait to learn far more from you.
This is actually a wonderful web site.

OMG! My Chieftec Dragon case!
OMG! My Chieftec Dragon case! I’m still using mine for the last 7 years! never thought i’d ever see it in this day and age in a PC review! I on the other hand keep mine very clean Josh 😛
Yeah, those cases are tanks.
Yeah, those cases are tanks. Not a perfect design, but I enjoyed using mine for years and years. Fairly roomy in the day and age of not overly large motherboards or graphics cards.
If the Graphics card blocks
If the Graphics card blocks the sata, and the sata are pointed to the right, what does it matter? When you hook things up you do those first and then the card, and when you want to adjust things you take out the card. It isn’t the best solution, but it shouldn’t make the ports unuseable.
Moreso the issue of heatsink in the way is a bad thing, but you have a 69xx card in there right?
The card was the HD 5870 I
The card was the HD 5870 I tested it with.
As for them being blocked… while I was doing testing I did plug in another hard drive, and it was amazingly annoying to do without removing the video card. Now, it is likely not often that people will swap out drives, but it is not unheard of to add an an extra optical drive, or swap in a Blu-ray drive, or buy another larger data drive (hey, 2 TB drives are dirt cheap these days). So, it was an annoyance to me.
I agree though, that northbridge chipset heatsink was very poorly thought out.
does the msi 890fxa-gd65
does the msi 890fxa-gd65 support virtualization like hyperv in server 2008
The 890FX supports IOMMU in
The 890FX supports IOMMU in hardware. Other than that, all VM support is handled by the CPU. The Phenom II and Athlon II series of processors have robust VM support in hardware.
