  • MB for SP

    I have just bought Edius SP and was about to buy the P5WDG2 WS Professional
    which was given the thumbs up by so many of you. See this thread. . .

    Unfortunately I have just learnt that this MB is no longer available.

    So now I am looking at the Asus P5K WS

    Sorry to start this discussion all over again but I really need to know if this MB will work with SP.

    I have also emailed the Grass Valley guys here in Melbourne, just waiting for a response.

    Thanks to anyone who can help (again)

    Bill :)

    That chipset is untried afaik. It could work or it could give you trouble.
    It looks like ti only has 1x PCI-X, 1x PCI-e and 2 X PCI. So you would use all them up and left with only 1 x PCI----- that's a bit of a concern, no room for a raid card.

    Perhaps think about the Supermicro X7DA-LE which is an ATX form factor Greencreek (good) chipset dual Xeon board, so it will fit a standard case, have more slots and you only need to put in 1 Xeon, upgrade to 2 later if you choose. It would retail around $750AU though.

      Thanks Mark,

      This MB has:
      1 x PCI-E x 16 slots
      2 x PCI-E x 1 slots
      1 x PCI-X
      2 x PCI 2.2

      See here

        OK, the 1x PCI-e slots were too small to the naked eye :)

        1x PCI-e slots are not useable for a decent raid card either, so there's still limitations.

          Has anyone tried the Asus P5K WS with Edius SP ?

          Any other thoughts would be appreciated as I'm about to build my system.


          (thanks again Mark for your help)

              I've been told by tech support that this board might work:

                This is working for me and my SP, but doesn't really help Mr.Bill, sorry.

                  Thanks so far guys.

                  I am leaning toward the Asus because this motherboard supports the latest Intel 45nm CPU Core 2 Quad.

                  Tech support told me that this board should be OK
                  But could not guarantee anything as it hasn't been tested yet.
