Actually, we met for the first time last week. Didn't know he lived near me til I saw his profile. Turns out we're in the same zip code. We actually met up again yesterday and tried to get his Scout working with all the parts he just ordered but ran into some issues so we're gonna try it again today and take pics for you all.

Okay.. Rockr69.. According to page 2.21 of your msi Manual. FF= Power on and first initialize CPU... I was looking at one of the bios updates and one was for AMD Black Editions for overclocking. Which means it is getting to the Processor and stopping. Your only way to fix that is have a spare AMD AM3 Chip that is Locked so you could update to the latest bios. I swear I wont say it again but get one of the new 890 boards with Sata 2 and Sata 3 and usb 2 and usb 3. Asus preferrably but the Gigabyte would be good too. if it didn' look like a box of Leggos.

Thats not true, because in the 120mm range there are R4's that range from 600rpm-2000rpm and big differencens in air flow. The silent range(1000rpm+) look almost the same as the ones you and me are running(2000rpm+-).

Ah good point, I hadn't even noticed some of the other 120mm's they have with the R4 part number. I've only ever seen the blue, red and green LED ones, as well as a standard smoked non-LED one! lol

I went out to Frys today and did 2 things
1) Bought a **** load of Black Zip Ties
2) Bought a extension cabler for my 24pin and an extension cable for my 8pin

the one thing made me sad was that i had to remove my V8 to be able to replace remove and put the extention cable for the 8 pin and I noticed that when i installed the V8 the first time around it was so much harder and I discovered that it was because i forgot to move the pin to the inside(if u have the v8 u know what i'm talking about) and to put it back it it was so much easier.
I'm already a pro at putting thermal paste in

Thanks for the info E., but the board is the same revision as my first board, 1.1.
It started up no problem and was running like a champ with the BE 550 until the board fried. It shipped with BIOS 1.6 which supported the BE Phenom IIs so it should start with my chip. This is what is leading me to believe maybe the CPU go junked when the board fried. As for replacing the board with the newer chipset board, I been waiting four years to build this system so it was a one shot deal with money. I am back to work but it'll be a few weeks before we're running full speed again. So I'll have to wait for a few paychecks, catch up on some bills and probably go with 965 BE 125 watt X4. If the board starts then I'll RMA the X2 550 and save it for my home server build I'm planning. It's just disappointing cuz I drooped all that coin and was living in the fast lane finally and now the system just sits here collecting dust while I wait. Oh well what does a guy do? Wait some more I guess.

Why can't the 285 do tessellation? I don't understand that. I tried googling it.
Can you explain please?
