    If you find out that the problem is your mobo, not your RAM, have you considered this AOpen board from logicsupply? It's Socket P, and I'm thinking about switching to it since I've been having some trouble with the video card on my GM965 (and would like to be able to customize my bios boot logo, which you can't do with the new AMI Bios)...

    Thats a nice board but its a little expensive for me since i'd have to get rid of my mini pci express wireless n card plus its like 40 dollars over what i paid for the GM965 and like 60 over the Jetway Extreme board which i think is the best one. Mostly because you are dealing with a decent company and not these half baked companies that charge u to RMA a part. Screw E-ITX they suck

    The Aopen is a nice board I have the i945gtt but it is prone to issues. I had to RMA my board 6 times before I got one that worked properly. You may want take a look at this thread Aopen i945GTt quite a few others had simular issue and had to RMA multiple times.

    The i965 is the newer version of the i945 so they may not have the issues the i945 did, just thought I'd give you a heads up.

    So here is an update to my build. I'm horribly behind schedule due to the fact i can't get a working motherboard. So i'm in limbo waiting for MSI to send me a new motherboard. I'm almost at the point of saying screw this carputer idea and just building a media computer but i'll give MSI a couple more tries before i give up.

    Thanks for the support but that site makes it kinda difficult to buy the product. I'm trying to get a replacement fan but i have no idea where to get it from. i don't wanna go to those a holes at e-itx. That has got to be the worst site i've ever bought from. So does anyone have any other ideas?
