I'm here because my Google-fu turned up the same problem but no workable solutions. I'm trying to install windows 7 Pro on a new build after the old version would seize up after a few minutes of use. During the install the system would freeze up and become unresponsive at the Extracting Files...
Not too concerned about aesthetics as the case will not be windowed. I'm currently holding off for bit as dropping $ for the 5960X hurt my bank just a bit, also curious to see what Gigabyte might have.
In my haste to finally complete my 4p (big thanks to Musky), I dropped a chip and bent a few pins in the socket. Does anyone have any experience fixing this or do I have to ship it off to be fixed?

I will have the first pair of chips in hopefully by Tuesday. I will be buying enough parts to get the system up and running tonight when I get home from work. pics will follow when I have things to take pics of
Ok have a pair of 6180's on the way, will have a second pair probably next week. Does anyone know how well they will OC? Also will 4 Gig dimms have and better/worse effect than 2 Gig dimms at same specs?
