    Fresh OS install on new B3 MB's

    Just installed my B3 board about 25 minutes ago. Same thing with me, in fact Windows even lost my audio driver. Ended up calling MS to reactive Win7 too.

    P8P67 vs P8P67 Pro

    That's pretty much it. Just to clarify the LAN on the Pro is from Intel, on the regular it's most likely Realtek. Also the regular lacks native eSATA ports, it appears it is only provided through a bracket.

    Why do laptops have *good* AG coatings and desktops suck?

    @ Pultzar not to highjack the thread but where are you finding the U2410 for $450?

    Asus P8P67 Pro PCIe lanes - Did I get it right?

    I'm trying to get a handle on the allocation of PCIe channels on my P8P67 Pro. Piecing together info from a few reviews and the manual I think I have figured it out. Does this look right? Hope this helps others. The board supports 3 different modes for the PCIe x4 slot. (Auto / X4 Mode / X1...

    Xigmatek AM2/AM3 bracket in stock in USA at the egg

    The ATI775 bracket is finally in stock so all the xiggy users like me can mount our heatsinks correctly without blocking memory slots. I'm excited that it's finally available stateside and wanted to share. :D

    Shattered Horizon

    I was in the beta, I agree with the general sentiment that the game is not very good. Didn't hold my interest, not very fun at all.

    nVidia/ATi need to serve it to Rockstar (GTA IV)

    I agree, and for the hard core pc gamer unfortunately that means games like Peggle, Diner Dash and the Sims2 are entry level games now a days. I know a ton of people, many admittedly female who adore flash web based games or other simple "addictive" games that look like products of the mid...

    Overclocking w/ DFI boards... (is it really that hard?)

    I just jumped from an Ultra-D to the DK P35 board. While there are many more BIOS options, you have to keep in mind that they are "optional". To achieve a basic OC all you really need to do is change around 5-10 bios settings at most, nothing any more challenging than the NF4 line of DFI...

    Motherboards with no legacy bullcrap

    I remember a few years back when Abit released a line of "legacy free" boards without PS/2 or Serial and Parallel. Everyone threw a fit because they wouldn't run their perfectly modern IDE drives or uber l337 PS/2 gaming mice. Same thing is happening right now. The number of people who...
