Can you see any bulging capacitors or burned looking spots on the board front or back?

Nope, can't seem to find anything visually wrong with it. I'm going to take to work and look under a microscope and blow it off with compressed filtered air and see what happens. Otherwise I might get a ASUS Sabertooth 990FX and sell this one like this. I just got me a EVGA 550 TI as an upgrade I was going to do with the extra memory, but might end up building an entire new system.

The stock fan on the 212+ is a good heatsink fan. check out this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/632591/cooler-master-hyper-212-plus-club
How did you apply the thermal paste? One blob in the middle or like the pic below.

I would at least enable C&Q and set cpu q-fan to optimal.
That will knock off a few more degrees.
How temps at load? Those are more important than idle temps.

Hello. I have a new crucial m4 128gb ssd which i'll soon be installing, along with Win 7 OS. This being quite an old mobo, I'm expecting some complications somewhere down the line, so with this in mind I'd like to ask the community here what their experiences are in this regards. From what I've learnt so far, I have a few questions of my own:

1. I understand that the M2n32 does not support AHCI, which is recommended in order to make use of NCQ. However, I seem to remember reading that Nvidea chipsets support NCQ natively without AHCI. If that's true, does this also include the M2n32, and do I need to change any settings to enable it? If not does it matter in the long run if the drive can't use NCQ?

2. Are there any settings in the BIOS that I need to be aware of that affects ssd drives in any way?

3. Are sata2 speeds noticeably slower than sata3 with ssd's? Are there any compatible pci sata3 controllers out there and is the performance gain worth it?


Thanks in advance. Any advice with respect to what I should be wary of, optimisation tips or anything else would be much appreciated.
