How much big HDD can i connect to my ASUS-CUBX-L motherboard?
I have an ASUS-CUBX-L motherboard and i am currently planning to upgrade my hard disk, since my old HDD crashed. I doubt whether this mother board supports the 160 GB and 320 GB PATA IDEs (Seagate or Western Digital) available now. Can some one confirm me on this. If these hard disks are not compatible please let me know which is the highest one i can use. My busted hard disk was a Maxtor 80GB.

hi, i believed there is no possible way of putting 2 internal HDD in 1 laptop, seems the area of the existing HDD inside is already limited and also crowded of some other parts...and its not designed for 2 HDD either. the best way for me to advice is upgrade the existing HDD to higher capacity from the existing " GB " to " T " or add up a big capacity 2.5 " pocket size external HDD.
yes you can put 512 mb of ram even 2 of it because the capacity of your board is up to 1024 mb of ram but make sure that it is an sdram and it has the same specification on whar is your manual indicate besides on the ram size.
The BIOS may not be able to support a hard drive of such a large capacity. Check the motherboard manufacture's WEB site to see what size hard disk the BIOS can support. There maybe a BIOS upgrade that will allow the motherboard to support larger hard disk capacity.
Dear Fried its possible.. Go the Boot Menu at your BIOS ( For go the BIOS Press DEL at startup your system) there you may se Hard Disk Priority Option. There you can change Hard disk Priority... you may need setup your sata as first one..
yes the mother board supports SATA However if you connect large Disks to the SATA connectors they are recognized correctly with full size. So leave your 500g and less HDs on the IDE and the big ones on the SATA. you can check this link for the manual for more information ftp://ftp.chiligreen.com/Desktop/Manuals/manual_a_k8v-mx.pdf hope this helps .thanks and Godbless pls appreciate by rating as fixyaa
your cpu does not have much to do with the hdd you may be getting...
technically you should have no problem by getting the largest hdd you can afford. what you may want to take into consideration besides your budget is:
what os you're using.. dos, win9x, xp, vista?
a. if you have dos the smaller you can get probably the better as you may not be able to create a large partition. (chances are you may not get anything new smaller than 40 gigs.. and that would be a big waste of money and hard drive room)
b. if you have win9x, your probably using fat32 for your filesystem meaning you may not be able to go above 32 gig when creating your partition and formating your drive.
c. if your using win xp or vista... and your planning on using NTFS when partitioning the drive instead of FAT32...(as you should unless your operating system is on a FAT32 partition) you can go for the largest hdd you can afford.
Have tou tried the mangement in windows, My computer> right click>manage, then disk management and then right click on your hard drive and then one of the options is to format.
Although only 127gb will show and the rest should show as a seperate partition, do the same with this to implement it.
If no other partition shows you may have to upgrade your motherboard bios to suport large capacity disks.
