    According to UPS tracking it's only about 75 miles away, I'll get it today
    I'm going in to work early so I can come home this afternoon and start on it.:eek:

    LOL I told my wife that we were staying home so I could get my PC back together, and she weren't even mad :eek:
    I told my boss yesterday I wanted to work 1st shift ( instead of 2nd) so I could go home an put my PC together this afternoon, he said "I don't think so" and I said... you know... I haven't EVER called in sick or late but I think I'm starting to come down with a bug, I may not be able to come in tomorrow afternoon :rolleyes: He said " I'll see you in the morning" Then had the nerve to call me a smart azz :eek:

    I got it put back together but haven't powered it up yet. I done some cool mods on my North bridge and I mounted the fan on the rear of the PC like I showed you in my previous post. I'll post some pics soon.:cool:

    I've just been messing with that 'ZoneAlarm', a third party firewall which is free to download.. I think if you don't already have a firewall then it would be great but it was a little too intrusive for my liking, plus the icon in the task bar would never stop flashing (unless you turned the web off) which I found really annoying so I eventually got rid of it..

    The only thing I can think of is that for some reason your original PSU shorted out, now it's starting to become really obvious that something else is buggered too and I don't think it was your mobo.. You've replaced it right? And your still getting blue screens! Therefore something else in the mix is suspect too... As you know, the most likely candidate is going to be your memory... I bet you thats what it is...
