    I after work I will pick up this board to replace my broken D201GLYL.

    Can some tell me if it is possible to make a custon BIOS splash screen with this board??
    For my D201GLYL I used the next toolkit:

    I received this board late last week, and got it installed last weekend. All I can say is I am a happy camper. This board is replacing my Jetway J7F5 board, which had to be replaced twice (what a piece of @#$@_) due to recurring stability issues. This board has been stable from the first moment so far. I love it. Further, it is about %50 faster on everything (perceived by me) than the C7 processor was. Much better than expected. All the bench tests I read about had it almost comparable to C7 in performance. I dont' see that at all. It also runs much cooler than the Jetway, which was a complete surprise. using the same fan, memory, HDD and PSU, this board hardly even runs the fan at all, compared to the Jetway.

    The only issue I've had at all, is figuring out the proper driver settings for the Realtek 97' audio, to get my sound optimized with the integration of HD radio module.

    this board gets 2 thumbs up! My stability issues are solved (I reached the light at the end of the tunnel!)

    Reading through the previous posts, I can report I have no noise during startup, and my Bios loads just fine. I use hibernation primarily, and with the C7 or this board, XP is fully loaded with RR playing music by the time I can put my truck in reverse and get 10' down the driveway. non-issue to me.

    Seninha - Yes, you can use the same toolkit to make the custom BIOS splash.

    Overlander - They're an awesome board aren't they and for the price they can't be beaten.

    Okay I've got XP installing with my CLF2 board... which is good. But what's weird is that I don't get a POST screen when I boot the board. If I tap del it'll go to the BIOS... but there's never any text on the screen. Anybody else get this?

    The manual actually actually says that sometimes the boot splash screen may not be visible because the post is too quick...

    Eh okay that's fair.

    I'm not impressed with the Realtek sound. I get intermittent loud screeches during boot, and I can hear static/hard drive noise in the background when it's idle. And this isn't even in my car yet... it's on my desk hooked up to PC speakers. :-(

    Edit: I discovered that I had two sources plugged into my desktop speakers (home pc and car pc), which caused a ground loop. I don't get the screeching anymore. I'm still planning on using the X-Fi card though, for SQ, bass redirection, fader control (CMRSS Surround mode) -- if I can stuff in in my MoCoSo case with a riser, that is.

    It seems a few people are having sounds issues. I just did a straight swao of my old Epia M10000 to the D945GCLF2 and have had no sound problems at all. No screeches, no background noise, nothing.

    24 month life cycle?

    I just looked at this board on Ebay here . This little snippet caught my eye:

    "The D945GCLF2 will also have a 24 month life cycle making it suitable for some industrial applications."

    24 month life cycle???

    I think that means they will make the board for 2 years, not how long one will operate or how long the warranty is.
