    Default Re: Dual LAN Teaming?

    I have a pair of basic Intel NIC cards teamed on one of my PCs. There are several ways the cards may be teamed, from the cards working together to one card being a backup if the other fails. There are multiple ways that cards working together may be configured. I use a simple unmanaged switch with a cable running to each card.

    In the end, the limitations of the Internet connection coming into your home becomes the bottleneck. As Synack said, having a bit torrent running while browsing other sites may have slightly better response time for the user, but the main Internet connection is always the limitation. It's fun to play with teamed NICs, but I would not suggest spending big money on a teamed setup in a home environment.

    IMO, comparing the number of phases of VRMs a board has, like 12 + 2, or 8 + 2 is not the simple "more is better" thing that marketing wants us to believe. Do we know that the same components are used in the 12 and 8 phase designs? Eight higher power output capacity components could be equal to or beyond the capability of 12 lower output capacity components. Given the lower power needs of current CPUs, is the capacity the extra components might provide needed, even for a highly OC'd CPU? More phases can be more efficient in the use of power used by the system, as well as reduce the heat produced and wear on the components. As usual, reality is more complex than a few numbers on a page.

    Yea, That was not what I intended to type there. Sorry for the confusion.

    Thank you very much for the answers.

    I�m not sure that I fully understand all answers. Anyways, Teaming two wifi�s on the MB would be far more complicated than my skills..

    And thank you for the HU regarding the Extreme 9. However, it seems to have more features than I actually need. In fact, as my main application can only utilize one GPU, yet benefits from the fastest possible CPU. So, a 970 board would actually be enough, but they only come with 4+1 PWM�s, which could be a problem when I OC my Phenom 2 X6 1100.

    So, I�m still debating with myself; the 990FX Extreme4 or the Fatal1ty (or the 990FX Sabertooth). Currently leaning towards the Fatal1ty.

    BR,
    Anders

    Sorry for the interference we cluttered up your thread with here concerning your original question(s). The take away in all our posts is that you can't team wifi adapters.

    And yes. I agree. Stay away from any board offering 4+1 with the intent of OC'ing the x6 1100. Any of the three boards you mention would suffice.
