well thats right, somehow, i managed to kill my mobo's agp slot and onboard lan
im running a 2mb pci card and have an NIC i bought from office depot. hell i might have killed my 9800pro too so that sucks. So now i move on to the A64 platform
Heres my to do list:

1. Sell my cpu and mobo for about 145ish (shoot me some offers)
2. Buy a chaintech mobo for $60 ($50 of my own money)
3. Buy a 3200+ DTR that does 2.4ghz stock voltage for $155
4. Sell/Trade Maze 4 + coldplate for an A64 waterblock

So there you have it, my FIFTH dead mobo (3 NF7's, 1 cheap backup, 1 AN7)

Im ditching the Pelt project since it was too much work, so i might just sell the pelt + psu for some $$

any comments lol? i guess its kind of ironic that a mod kills hardware easier than some of the less experienced builders

If ya wanna know something about USB... My USB system met the first component that could make the computer not boot... I plugged in a mini-mouse and the computer wouldn't boot. So I just let it boot with the mouse plugged in.. then when I was in SuSE I plugged it in again and my computer just turned right off... its extremely strange.. and its still doing it.. lol

We in this site do not care what race your are, we only care that you are a knowledgable person who is willing to assist others.

I have personally fried 3 mobos, but in my comp room I have 6 fried mobos, most of the spare parts I have are from others dead comps.

And I feel like an amature with only 2 mobos, 3 sticks of RAM, 1 PSU, 1 vid card and a CD ROM drive.

lol I had an old Compaq.. Me and it didnt like each other. Had to get it fixed 3 times. Yet the only thing that died was the horrible integrated sound... Which, I didnt have any more thus I lived in a computer world with no sound... It sucks.

I've only attempted overl****ing on 3 computers (not including the school comp..lol) so i havent fried anything and i don't do Hardmods since i know the chances of frying (100%..lol).

Use hafve got me all scared now about me smashing my new system. I hope no one fryed anything by just overl****ing. Yuo can fry anthing by just changing frequncies and voltages a little right. Hard mods is crazy i just mkean bios, you can tfry in the bios right.
