  1. Just use the edge of a plastic credit card, gently does it-it can be tough.
  2. I recently read a review on this Chipset Cooler- Jing Ting Chipforce JTS-0006 chipset Cooler and was wondering if anybody has used it on the DFI boards and if it is worth it over the Evercool one. I notice that he used a DFI board but users knowledge is generally?! more reliable than Reviewers opinions. Thanks Link to Cooler:http://www.bigbruin.com/2006/jts0006_6
  3. I don't know if you have tried this, but sometimes the default ram timings can be a bit tight, loosen them and see how you go. With mine I had to use just one stick of ram to get it to successfully load Windows and after it was loaded put back the other stick and no problems. I lost a bit of sleep over this one.

  5. With the latest AMD price drops ,I will be getting a x2 4200 so is there anything I need to do different or is it CMOS clear , load defaults reboot and load settings and away we go.? ie new drivers etc I know use search but give a noobie a break
  6. Yeah , have to agree spent a couple of arvo's lapping the base of my artic Cooler pro and it certainly made a big difference to the temps(dropped by about 7*-I forget how to make the degree symbol-old age) You really don't know how rough it really is until you start lapping, but at least its flat.
  7. I have just put together the rig and I must say that I read your forums and how to build many times and followed them to the letter and it was a very painless experience when I built it( ie no hassles). Should have changed the Northbridge Chipset Fan ( noisy little bludger) but the missus was a bit leary and we have to keep the cook happy! I am very happy with the expert, was going with the CFX3200, but have had mixed fortunes with the ULI chipset(Asrock 939) , also I don't trust Nvidia to do the right thing with drivers as far as an ATi chipped motherboard goes( paranoid I suppose). Anyway great forum, thanks again from downunder.
  8. As I am considering this motherboard, I have done a search but have been unable to find whether this CPU cooler(pro 64) will fit. I know it fits the DFI LANPARTY UT nF4 Ultra-D, but can find no info for this board. I have had this A8v and its instability, but I am a bit apprehensive about this board after what I have read. Thanks for your help Bryan
