Thanks for the pic. I was looking at the rear bezel on my case; pair of tin snips takes care of that. Now..where's that $70 I had a minute ago

It's important you read those links eclipse gave you. But to answer your question, you have AMD's CoolnQuiet on. During idle states or low usage times, your CPU goes from it's stock 3.6ghz to 800mhz to reduce the use of electricity and to lower your temps. You can turn this off by going into the BIOS and turning CnQ off and also by going into your Control Panel and setting your power settings on "Performance" instead of "Balanced" or "Power-Saving".

I had a feeling that was causing it. My CPU is stock @ 3.2, but I have it at 3.7 right now. I'm running Prime95 right now to make sure everything is stable.

According to AMD Overdrive my CPU temp is 47. That ok? I don't have my sides on my case yet. Waiting for my controller card to come in the mail so I can hook up my other hard drives. Plus found out a 500GB Caviar Black I had is failing. Making some odd noises.

Really everyone should read the first link I gave, if they have not already. It will explain what it is you are actually doing and give you a better understanding of why things are not working.

There is one or two people that are using a WB setup but they are $$$ and made in germany(?) There is also someone who modded the stock solution and made a universal WB fit.

Looks as tho those of us that were hoping for Bulldozer chips on our 790FX's are going to be out of luck. The new Bulldozer (8core) chips are going to be AM3+ which will not work in AM3 boards.... Altho the AM3 chips will work in AM3+ boards so, it looks as tho our MB is going to be outdated in the near future Bulldozer will however be using dual channel DDR3 so our memory will be able to be used in them.

And so goes the ugly cold hearted truth about the computer industry. If you want the latest ang greatest CPU's you'll have to ditch your mobo for a new one. This is my biggest argument w/Hardware designs and why I think the ASUS M2N32 SLi Deluxe was one of the best mobo's of all times. I mean it supports CPU's ranging from the very first AM2 CPU up till the latest AM3 x4 965 All this with decent HTT overclockablity too...

I wouldn't mind the long-lasting compatibility, but it's a new architecture. Maybe AM3+ will bring us another long line of compatibility with future products, yanno?
