I bought a new OEM copy of 8.1, but I'm not going to install it until I've thoroughly tested everything.

I currently have the x99 Deluxe, actually its in the mail, but when it gets here I'm going to see what I can do with it. If I don't like the results I may return.

In the meantime, I'll just reinstall my retail windows 7 copy to test things out. Don't want to blow the OEM copy on a motherboard I might possibly send back.

BTW Drexel, that case is fricking gorgeous, wish I had seen it before!
