THX is just some software i thought it was something built into the onboard sound. BIOS reset button on the IO panel is handy.
I slated AMDs mounting scheme but it takes a min to get it attached even if its hard to position the cooler on AMD coolers. MY GOD the screw things i tried to use are horrible! Even the push pins i endup using where difficult to get tight. Took literally a couple of hours of swapping brackets before i just lucked it with the push pins. Seems simple but for no reason one of the pins would not tighten and the screw bracket things just dont work on this motherboard.
What did you have before?
I'm looking at moving to a 2600k in Jan.
