Look what finally came from the UPS man yesterday. I did end up getting sent home early from work.... I had a choice after we ate lunch yesterday... I could either sleeve the 8-pin on my PSU or take a nap... I chose to take the nap. Man it felt good!

Anyways, I opened the Newegg box, which I can reuse to send back the ASRock board! And here is what I found inside



Not too much flashiness in the way of packaging.



Here is the stuff I won't use ever again!



***!!! Black SATA cables.... but I ordered 3 of them the other day.... guess I have 2 extra now! IDE cable??? Who uses those things anymore? I guess if I ever need to I can throw in a 60GB IDE drive thats sitting in my box-o-parts.



At least ASUS brands their own anti-static bag.



And here it is... my replacement board!



YAY! Yummy USB connections!



Here is my current workbench (kitchen table.... notice my little helpers sippie cup)



Well time to see if it works... I always toss in the stock heatsink for testing just to make sure the fan spins, since I have no case speaker or DR Debug on this board.



Heatsink installed.





Ohhh lookie a light!



Fan is a spinning! Good enough for me!



Now lets get rid of the heatsink!



And the AM3 bracket!



Add the H50 bracket since I got it working again!



Been looking at my computer this way for almost 3 full days... it's time to fill it up again!



an empty I/O shield area!



There that is better!



Now getting the board to fit into this I/O shield was a PITA! ASUS should really redesign the I/O shield.... too many prongs for grounding that are just in the way.... half as many and not such flimsy metal and they have a winner!



At least I got my board back in place....man it looks good!



This is the last picture I could get about building the computer. Stupid camera battery died after this shot. Not wanting to wait for my camera (sorry guys) I went ahead and put the rig back together. I did something amazing... I only used about 10 zipties building the entire thing this time.



After the build I was able to snap a few more shots. That blue tubing looks so much better then the clear stuff I had in there.





I know you guys are going to say something about that red SATA cable in there.... Not to worry... when my wife went out to get dinner she checked the mail and my black ones finally arrived! I will replace the red one soon enough. I really wanted to load in all my programs and tank a few instances in WoW.

Now I have noticed that I hover around the 20C mark idle and 24C while gaming. I can contribute that to the fact that it dropped to 30-40F here in Kentucky over the past couple of days.

Thanks so much.... Hopefully there aren't anymore changes for a while.... until my wife says... "I want to play that brand new game that our video card can't handle... or how much would a new processor be?"

Because at the time of purchase Intel couldn't figure out how to control SATA2 ports and if you look at my build I use 5 SATA drives, also its more bang for the buck and I'm not an Intel Fanboi
