Thanks for the input! I think I will just go with the cheapest of those suggestions - I have to save money for a new PSU in order to power my planned CrossFire upgrade

edit: Goddamn that CM cooler is cheap! Damn you yanks and your newegg!

Cheers

update: I am up and running! everything is working correctly strait out of the box It's gonna take me days to figure out the whole bios. (came with 1.4) I am going to be flashing to the newer as soon as I get a good grip on the bios. I must say I love the look and feel of this board!

As you can tell I am no where near done but I needed to get back up for the fold-a-thon.

I'm not sure If I should be mad at MSI or Prolima. Because I had to modify the AM2/2+/3 bracket to fit and if you look to take the CPU out I have to remove the bracket.

@ eclipseaudio4

It looks like you got a weird bracket. It didn't fit correctly with the holes lined up?

edit: I don't see any clearance problems with the bracket and the zif socket lever.

Yea the holes would not line up even when the lever was down. It not a clearance problem with the lever but when you put the lever up to remove the cpu the socket moves. Thats why If i need to remove the CPU I have to remove the bracket.

EDIT: do you guys know a program that will read the MB temps?

Sounds like a manufacturing problem with the bracket. The holes are at the standard distance and the socket is in the right spot. I used a gigabyte socket as a temp fix (was trying my Hyper 212 plus on gigabyte board) when I couldn't find the stock MSI one and it fit fine.

For temps I use Everest and HWMonitor. Both are easy to use and free.

I have everest but I cant get it to show MB temps. I think I may need to reinstall. I will check out HWmonitor.
Thanks.

As promised Build log. Still in progress... http://www.overclock.net/amd-build-l...-x4-965-a.html
