    Mobo INT question

    Hey guys,
    A little computer related question for you if you don't mind.
    I'll get right down to the nuts and bolts of it.(after typing I guess not).
    I've been using my Asus A8V Deluxe for a few months now and have GS3 and Sonar running on it with a Tascam Fw 1884. It's been ok, I had been a Logic PC hold out at 5.51 but really wanted a control surface so it's been a slow migration over to Sonar being busy!
    I now noticed in the Device manager that I had my Raid card, Uad-1 card, my Agp matrox G450 and my OnBoard Firewire all sharing the same IRQ.
    So I switched the Uad-1 Card and the Raid Card into different PCI slots and they are on separate IRQ's now, Thanks Phil Okeefe..
    However the Matrox and the firewire controller still share the same IRQ # 16... It says in the Asus manual that there are 4 INT settings, A, B, C or D. INT A makes the AGP slot and the Onboard Firewire share IRQ's . If I could figure out how to get it to INT B I'd have everything Audio related on their own IRQ. I've just heard that some people have been getting extremely low latency settings with the FW 1884( like a buffer setting of 64 and recording 20 track of audio plugs etc.! I can't even do 10! Yes I have Raid 0 array for audio, 1 sata drive for samples and another sata for impulse's and BFD! Tweaked for audio as well!
    Does anyone know where on the Mobo or Bios you can change (Pg 2-16 of the A8 series manual) INT's???
    I left an email on the Asus forum too!
    Weird, looking at the mobo and the schematic, I don't see it anywhere, or through the bios...
    Thanks for any thoughts.

    I've got the same mobo. Make sure to post the solution, when you get it. I have no idea how to change it, aside from the slot changing that you've already done...

    Thanks Jon,
    I will i have a post out to the Asus forum as well jcschild (Scott from ADK) seen as he built a computer for Craig Anderton with this Mobo he may be able to chime in.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that with ACPI Windows just ignores the motherboard (BIOS) IRQ settings.

    Yes and know, according to the bios manual for the A8V mobo whatever/wherever the INT A setting is assigns the AGP and Firewire port together. Still have no way of changing it. But when I moved PCI cards the IRQ's changed as well. Ya a bit of a headache. Even though I know music apps aren't totally video intensive I'd like it separate!
