ASUS Z8NA-D6C (Intel 5500) Motherboard - Test System Setup and Comments

With so many single socket motherboards floating around, we thought we would try a little dual CPU fun this time around.

As you can imagine getting everything installed on the Z8NA-D6C was tricky. It was not exactly hard, but you did have to install things in the right order to avoid complications.


After all the hardware was hooked up we installed Windows 7 x64 Ultimate. This went very smoothly until we tried to install the drivers from the DVD. At this point all we saw were errors telling us that the installers did not support our OS.






Talk about frustrating; we ended up either using the drivers provided by Windows or grabbing a couple off of the Intel and ASUS websites. As we also mentioned, there was no audio codec included. During the setup of several of our regular tests we were given errors about this. We ended up having to use our PCI ASUS Xonar D2 to get around this small issue. Once we passed these two hurdles were we good to go.
