    A lot nicer than I expected!!!!

    As you all know this board has been deep freeze ready. Had nail poish all over it...and de- electrical grease all over it. PLUS still had spots on it from when it had the major major leak on it and would not turn on for two weeks.....ALMOST DONE AFTER HOURS AND HOURS

    I used a Zip-Tie and a paper towel to wipe the zip-tie on it. About to move to alcohol to get the last tid bits/ O man I didn't want to break one little chip and kill my board.....

    Hey my board came down in price a little LOL
    $329.99

    Motherboard is going to be white(It's going to look sweet I already know). I don't know about the pci slots and stuff. I might just let them be....Don't know yet. I could just cut a pci-e video card bottom off and paint them one by one.


    Sorry Camera Phone today.....

    I'm about ready.....I had crap all over this board....

    Anyways I didn't want any cracking paint and have just been taking my time. Also the SB had that paste on it that you have to wipe for 1 hour so before it comes off......

    Lol. Don't you just hate that stuff!? It's the holidays and you just get in tangled with everything. Even if you never wanted to to begin with...

    I can't wait to see this! Make sure once you get done, to use a can of air and make sure you get anything left over.. Don't want anything to go wrong with ya... Also.. PM me about how many you think you need on your card mod. Putting in a order this weekend on everything.

    Let me just say that tapping these slots up is driving me nuts LOL. I have found tapping a few toothpicks to make them taller makes this a lot easier.
