Did you apply a to much AS5? About the size of an uncooked grain of rice is all you need.

should i still do a fresh install or just be glad that everything works?
If both MB's have the NF4-U chipset, you will be fine with switching the components out.
I would install the chipset drivers anyway.
If you can uninstall the old chipset drivers, I would do this also.
I just did about the same thing, and I haven't had any serious problems.

Perhaps the HSF isn't seating correctly.

i'm thinking that...b/c Thermaltake's site says that this HSF is made for the opty. i just wanted to confirm that it's a user error and not that this HSF can't take it.

am i right to assume that the Big Typhoon is the best HSF out there that won't require removal of the mobo? i spent too much time on this **** last night to remove it again.
