I came across this nifty solution for one of the biggest problems of the PCMark05-benchmarker. TiN, the Ukrainian overclocker and hardware modification master who has been featured on the HWBOT front page more than once in the last couple of months, posted his solution for the need of PCI lane power when using a series of GIGABYTE i-Ram modules.
Time consumption? According to TiN:
Time consumed: 30 minutes to digg scrap, 5 minutes to cut PCIs, 20 minutes for reading SATA and PCI standards, 5 minutes for googlin I-RAM pics to see what and where connected from slot and 30 minutes for soldering and taking photos.
Total: 1.5 human-hours.
Price: As everything on PURE – PRICELESS.
