, well I wait until the Wife and Daughter start "sawin' logs" and I'll tear her apart real quick!
So the UD5 isn't as 'lucitive" as the OC options as the Gd70 huh? I really liked the idea of how the PCB is made on that board though. Nice and Tough from what Ive read!

What you might try is removing everything, CPU, RAM, GPU, the works. disconnect all power cords and wires. remove the CMOS battery and switch the jumper. Let it sit for 10 min, then hold the CMOS reset button for about 60 sec. Then put it back together and try again.

As Mastiffman said, yes, you can run sanitary erase from your 64-bit o/s.

For the record, I leave an O/S installed on another drive for this type of reason.

I have the same the same CPU HS as you have the stock fan over the north bridge just like you. I have mine setup push/pull the second fan just rests on top of the fan on the NB and is about 1/4 inch higher than the it should be, which is fine. Instead of using a twist tie I screwed the stock fan down flat onto the NB heatsink. You can thread screws in between the fins to secure it down.

I loaded up a second partition with an Extra OS and all of the goodies, just in case and made an image of it and store it on that same drive but on the first partition. Ising Norton Ghost 2003. It's an old program but I can burn a fresh image install of almost 20Gb in about 5mins :25sec... I love that part! I just pop in the NG2003 Recovery disk that I made and it boot into the program in about 5-6 seconds... It's nice. Are there any other programs that others can recommend fro this purpose? I'm open to suggestions if one is better or more convenient...

They should have a made a sloagan for the NG2003.

I think that I'm off to pop off my NB/Mosfet/SB Chipset HS and reapply some AS5, then pop in that 955... Hopefully, I'll get the fricken TX-3 Tomorrow.

I called today about it. I got 4-7 day shipping for free from newegg... I ordered it last tuesday. So Moday would have been 4 Business days....

So come to find out, Newegg shipped the TIM vis UPS Mailing... Which means that UPS drops it off at my local USPS Distribution Center and they have the Mail delivery drop it in the mail. But what burns my butt is that it got to the USPSC enter on SATURDAY!!!!!!!! WTH???? LOL

That sucker better show up tomorrow. Guuurgh!LOL

I tell ya what though.... I'm NEVER getting 4-7day shipping again, regardless if it FREE or NOT!



EDIT: Got the 955 C3 in and new AS5 on my Chipse/MOSFET HS and she's holding at 39*C with 1.32v to her.... But it was cold boot so I'll give her some BLEND and see what happens...

I agree with Mastiff here. I'm taking the board/processor back to Fry's Electronics tomorrow. Going to see if they can test out the processor to insure that there is nothing wrong with it, then replace the board. After talking with Mastiff, I also believe that a chip has went out on the board for the NB. It's a very sad day for me, as I was really looking forward to getting some usage out of the thing today/tonight.

Side note: The system seemed slower on startup than my previous Phenom I. Perhaps that could have been a sign that something may be wrong?

Mine is really slow on startup and am using vista ... it reaches the vista boot screen really fast...but vista takes its own time...maybe something to do with it being on the second partition as against the first...and it is a fresh install.
