Sorry about the double post. I meant to edit the first one. If the Mod would delete the first one? Thanks.

are you serious? Most of us are quite busy with our lives and sometimes miss questions. Other times when people make asses of themselves we let them know that you get more bees with honey then vinegar. So how about you repost your question and maybe someone will take pity on your and answer it. I dont like to come off as an ass but I have seen so much of this thread craping lately that I am just fed up! Heres another idea though, check the OP and see if maybe there is something there that may help you. Or how about using the search feature or even Google. There is a reason that the first thing that comes up will most likely be this thread and that reason is that this is the most informative thread out there about this board.

God... put an x6 in there with uncovered fets and you're asking for trouble...
If they aren't covered by your blocks, wouldn't there some way you could whip up some large RAM-sinks to stick on there or something?

I think that's enough ranting/raging and we should get back to helping.

Ah well now that you've cleared that up, if you're thinking about removing the heatsink for the VRMs/northbridge, I suggest you try to find some other heatsink(s) to replace it, so that the most likely part to fail in this board (VRMs) gets some cooling. Something like this, but I have no measurements of the VRMs, so these might not fit. Linky.

Definitely get some VRM cooling in there somehow, the failure rate on this board is pretty high as it is and removing all of the VRM cooling, with a 125W processor and all intent to overclock is basically like killing yourself.

Guys,

I recently purchased a OCZ Bigfoot 3.5" 120gb 2e SSD for my PC, since ive just done a rebuild into my case, and its probably been asked a million times, do i ?


1) I think the mobo bios is 1a or 1c do i need to upgrade to latest v1g
2) Need to do anything special when loading the OS (Win7x64) for the first time on the SSD
3) Any tweaks or things i need to do once OS is loaded on the SSD
4) Should i only install os + updates on SSD or install the applications as well, whats the best method.

Thanks all.

Bios updating goes like this, if ain't broke don't fix it. That being said, I don't think majority of us here are happy if we're not trying to at least break something, so if you want to update, go for it. I'm going too

AS for your SSD questions, before Win install enable AHCI in BIOS. The one major thing to do in the OS is too disable disk defrag and read up on TRIM. When it comes to what you should install on the SSD, I'd say for sure, OS + updates and your core programs that you use the most. For me that would be Steam, Team Speak, etc... you get the pic, but it's up to you. Unfortunately 120GB isn't a whole lot of space anymore. I will wait 1 more year to go SSD so I can get at least a 250GB SSD for less than $250
