wow thanks for your comment. I have yet to try it seeing as I'm now on service pack 2. When I install service pack 3 again I'll try this and see if it works. Does your internet now work normally with the 15.17 drivers? Do you advice me to use the. 9.53/ 9.64 / or the 15.17 nforce drivers with service pack 3. After I manually entered my ip? Also on the asus site you mentioned something about your raptor. I have the same one you have. Is there something you did to decrease booting time or making the raptor faster? let me know.
