I was giving me some weird message about the CPU, so I figured I needed to flash the latest BIOS. After erasing the old BIOS and in the middle of installing the new BIOS, the board had one of its random power offs. Yup, it's a dead P.O.S.
The powering on and off thing is one of the tricks with the P5B line. Did you make sure to send power to the CPU? It needs a 4-pin connector for mine to work. It could also potentially be the PSU but I wouldn't think so.

Yup, I had everything hooked up. The power supply came out of a working system, so it should be fine. I'm going to RMA to the egg, but now I have to decide what I want to get. I'm not sure if I really want to get another open box P5B and a brand new one is an extra $50 from what I paid. Suggestions?

Gigabyte S3?

Cheap and works. What more could you ask for? You won't be hitting much more than 450FSB so the S3 can take it easily. (As if you'd hit 4+ GHz anyway)

Ya you might want to consider the S3. I was gonna get a P5b vanilla myself them read some bad reviews and decided to splurge and get the deluxe... otherwise the S3 could serve you very well.

I might be dramatically reducing my folding power within the next month, for an indefinite amount of time... I'm planning on selling my RAM and my CPU, and getting some new RAM and a new CPU in April. I want to make sure I can sell the E6300 now at a small loss before the "better" C2D's come out.

What that means however is that I'll be back on the Celeron D326, which isn't amazing by any standard.

I'll continue folding this month on the E6300... but will probably end up selling at the beginning of April. I'm probably going to eBay it (seems that the prices obtained are slightly higher than here).

The S3 is a great board and I've considered it, as well as, teh Biostar 965PT. But I would like something with RAID. I'm actually trying to talk myself into getting a nvidia 6xx series motherboard for future upgradability reasons. Someday when the prices of 8800gts's fall off the map, I might get a second one for SLI.

OK, well I got some parts on the way, but I'm not going guarantee when I'm going to have my build complete. Cuz more than likely if I do, something is going to break or something. Hopefully I'll have it built, OCed, and running SMP by April.

I was thinking: You'd run the 4300 native? Because you don't have VT on it. Otherwise, you'd probably still get more points with the opteron.

I was planning on running SMP on a native Linux setup. I don't need VT for that right?
