Neither of those links are working for me. I tried the vista drivers on my ASUS mobo disk(loaded them onto a usb memstick). Maybe ill try those again.

This is because they detect an existing installation of the same, despite having used windows and Revo uninstallers to remove them. I will be trying some of the suggestions put forward to attempt resolve this as soon as I can but am all ears for additional ideas.

Secondary is the question of should I upgrade to the newest bios, 5002, from 2002 which I am currently running with the 965be. And if I upgrade, should I do so while running my old processor or the 965be, which as I said, is currently installed.
I got the latest bios, 5002, installed and running fine, now if I can only get all the old junk cleaned out to get a clean install on the nVidia performance tools...then I can unlock those other three cores...

I'm not sure this is your intent, but this is how I achieve "dual boot".

I have two drives in my system. One that has an XP 32-bit image that I had been using originally, and another drive that I setup with W7 Pro 64-bit. I can boot into either drive by reordering the drive sequence in BIOS.

At this point I don't see much point in using the XP image any longer...

Gyro, I'm already doing a combination of both ref clock and CPU multiplier. Are you making a point that by increasing the base HT Ref clock, one will achieve comparable performance to a board sold today?

BTW, I think I had previously asked for other samples of folks settings for HT ref and didn't get any takers.

When my next wave of OC hits, I will look at pushing further. Right now ref clock is set at 216. I'd like to know how far people push this number in normal use case and still have a stable system. My 965BE is running reliably at 3.9GHz with the stock CPU cooler, albeit help is provided via additional cooling fans.

Looking at the board and looking at the cooler it's going to be close.
You could always put the outside fan at the top as pull.
Can you measure the distance from the center of the cpu to the pci-e x16 slot?
You'll need approx 3 inches,and that will put the fan pretty tight to the gfx card.
Here is a link to the specs http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=p...4&lng=en&set=1
Thanks Gyro,
noctua's compatibility page clearly states that cooler gets over the pci-e slot. so upside down position is a no go. using the fan on top as a pull would be bad as well for case airflow reasons. colossus case also has a stock on top that acts as an exaust.
i would like to use the back of the case as an exaust (for the cooler as well) but people say that it goes over the ram modules this way. my modules don't have heat sinks so i guess it's ok. i'm using the normal xms2 modules(no heatsinks)

I just want someone to confirm that turning the cooler 90degrees is viable and that it leaves enough space for a ram module under it.

It doesnt seem to have much problem loading Windows 7 to a "Basic" drive, but does not want to load to a "Dynamic" drive which is required to run my F3's in RAID 0.

Thanks for your input.

Usually the people who run into problems in this situation are the ones with HUGE ram heatsinks. Ill bet you'll be fine. And besides, your only running two modules, just move them both over so they are in the 2 and 4 slots instead of 1 and 3. (IIRC)
