    All right now i'm really ****ed off with MSI. I RMAed the board and they sent it back exactly the same. I've changed every other part that has to do with the board and it doesn't work.

    By the way thanks for the bracket BLACK. The one u sent me had a screw broke off in it. I just drilled it right out so it still worked great. Thanks again. Sucks that the board still doesn't work.

    Alright it looks like i have to RMA the board again because the video driver keeps cutting in and out. I added a spare video card i had laying around and then it works fine. I'm getting annoyed quickly as u can probably already tell. I'll keep pushing through. I'm using centrafuse 1.2 and i'm loving it so i will definitely be using centrafuse instead of roadrunner. I'll keep you all posted :-D

    sorry about the screw... i didn't even think to look at it. lol @ "non used" board with a mount already stuck on the board and another mount with a broken screw. logic supply got down on that one. oh well... it works. hopefully you can get the bugs worked out too.

    Yea i'm going to have to send it back to them. The video card i have in there i don't wanna use cause its way too big to fit where i wanna put the case. Oh well back to the drawing board but on the software note. OMG centrafuse is soo smooth!

    I'm feeling your pain just reading this thread..
    Trying to decide on a MB myself and I'm scared now

    Quick question - how are you dealing with heat issues? Unstable boards are very often due to overheating.. do you have active or passive cooling on the cpu?

    REVIVED!!!!







    ok i'm back at it now. After all this time i finally got my pc working. I thought it was the motherboard but it turns out it was a bad stick of ram. I'm running with 1 GB for now. I got xp shrunk down to a 250mb install and 650mb running on the comp. I'm trying to get these fbwf shutdown scrips to work right now.

    I ordered the SI civic navigation console so i can start figuring out where i'm gonna mount this thing. I'm still going with everything in the dash but until someone can give me the dimensions of a stock civic navigation unit i'm just gonna have to wait till i can pull my radio out of the car. I'll keep everyone posted.

    My next purchase will be centrafuse :-D
