    Well the new Kanotix is out and works great on the nforce board. It has the forcedeth driver! YEAH!

    Here's the output from mbmon:

    Temp.= 36.0, 58.5, 0.0; Rot.= 4500, 0, 0
    Vcore = 1.68, 1.68; Volt. = 3.41, 4.81, 11.86, -16.19, -6.12

    Now, go here and get FVCool103.tar.gz a very awesome app designed by a nuclear physics prof.
    Run it an voila! a 28 degree difference! (YMMV)

    Temp.= 30.0, 30.0, 0.0; Rot.= 4530, 0, 0
    Vcore = 1.70, 1.70; Volt. = 3.39, 4.95, 11.49, -16.19, -6.12

    More fans? We don't need no more stinkin fans. :P

    Next I'll put the system under a load and see how she does.

    It may be possible to drop the Vcore to, say, 1.65 if you are not contemplating serious o'cing. Worthwhile to try, as power/heat dissipation follows a square law. It would also be very useful to reduce that Vcore thermal loading. Are you still using phase-change interface material on your HSF? Nobody recommends that - use pure silver paint, nothing else, whether or not you apply FVCool!

    AN35N & onboard LAN

    Shuttle Motherboard for AMD processors Model AN35N400-Ultra Retail
    Specifications:
    [...]
    Onboard LAN: Realtek 8201BL 10/100 MBS Ethernet Model#: AN35N400

    All well supported under Linux.

    Hi!
    I bought the same mainboard and it works well under Linux (SuSE 9.0), but i don't know how to get the onboard-lan to work.
    the interface is not recognized automatically and i couldn't find any drivers in the internet -
    how did you get it to work?

    thanks for your help.

    A friend of mine bought the ECS K7SOM with onboard Duron, Sound and Network for under $80 - and he told me it works great (and fast enough for him) under Knoppix... out of the box... just insert RAM and CD drive and there you go... suoper cheapo!

    For example (this is not advertising, you can buy this everywhere even cheaper) http://www.shentech.com/ecsk7v7amdpr.html
