CC820 Motherboard & ATA/100 Controller

By pa_sharp ·
I have an Intel CC820 currently with an ATA66 controller. I'll definately get a faster transfer rate on my 7200RPM HDD with a faster controller.

I can't seem to find anywhere that the CC820 will accept a ATA100 controller.

Is it just a simpleswap? Might I have to upgrade the BIOS?

Thanks

you just have to pop it into one of your PCI slots. the only problem would be your hard drive, if it's only ATA66 adding a ATA100 control will have no effect. if your drive is ATA100 then it will speed things up. Maxtor & Promise technologies have recently come out with ATA133 drives & adapter cards, compatible with ATA66 MB.
But the adapter cards won't speed up transfer rates of lower ATA drives.

I don't know if your aware but Intel has posted a notice on their site in regards to the CC820 MB. If your MB has one of the MTH (memory translator hub)components, you could get a refund or replacment MB. You'll need to visit the site & download a program to determine this. It causes your system to reboot & lockup.

Thanks to both.

I believe it is an ATA 100 drive. I also noticed the mobo thing on the Intelsite. I'll have to download that item.
