Don't turn on the Phase controls. Those Put the Computer into energy saving mode. The Phase LED's are okay to keep on but don't use the phase option itself...

Got my first custom PC up and running this evening was hoping for some advice however.
Most everything seems to be doing well, except for my front headset ports. For some reason they will not detect my mic. I feel somewhat sure i connected those right to the mobo but apparently not. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks.

Those aren't the official BIOS Dir d... You know that right?

I was told that 1.91 or 1.92b had more Ram straps? Is that true? Has anyone Flashed to the 1.91 or 92's yet?

Going once... Going twice......

Did you read the manual, Pages 2-15 through 2-18? It tells there. You shuold have a typical USB plug for that... NO?

RIGHT! On PAGE 2-15! It refers to "JAUD1" as the Audio Jumper. If you don't use it, you need to keep the Jumpers on where they are. BUT, if you want to use front panel (or more than just the back panel) for audio ports, remove the Jumpers and plug the FP Audio connector there!

P.S. Anyone looking to Watercool their ATI 5770, Look HERE
