Nice little toy although I agree with you about it being green... All those wires and 'hook-ups' are going to take some sorting out..
As for Gigabyte boards... I love em! My last 2 mobos have been Gigabytes and they are rock solid.
What did you mean about newer cards?
Oh ok, with you now.. I've spent half the afternoon messin' with Crysis again until I changed the driver (again!) and now alls running smooth again.. Seems like these later driver releases aren't that good for the game although they should contain everything that was included with the original driver release for the game.. Weird
No but I wont be able to start putting it together until I get back on Sunday
Maybe I should cancel the trip to the beach Do ya think the Wife and kids would mind me canceling the trip to build my PC? LOL
Kemical, You could probably hear her yelling at your house.
abit have put backlight blue LED's on the board. These are adjustable for brightness in the BIOS and flash all of the time that the board is on. Certainly this is an excellent thing for those who have case windows and it adds that extra special element into the board putting it above other boards. That is: IF you like blue!
I found a pic of one mounted on the new MoBo I'm getting !
I took my fan off and turned it around and mounted it to the other side of the cooler so it would draw the heat out and blow it out of the case instead of blowing across the cooler. Doing that lowered my temp about 5 more degrees
