    Speaking of goods, I'll try to get popswalas and Mad Shots stuff out tomorrow. Everything is packed up nicely so I can just walk in, pack the stuff in the flat rate boxes and mail it off. I also found Rayovac CR2032 batteries for $4.37 a pair, so I got 2 packs and should have my 4CoreDual (E6600) back in business shortly, since it has decided to work again. :)

    You are correct lol. Had a few other dead ones appear in the farm and I ran out of spares.

    I'm actually going to try ghetto hardwiring the A8N-E's battery socket to the power LED pins, since front panel LED headers are fed by the 3.3v rail. Yes, it is out of spec by a bit and I'll have to reset the BIOS when I shut off the system, but the board never shuts off on its own and as long as it's turned on it will have a "full battery." :rolleyes:

    If that becomes too much of a pain to deal with, I can just go to RadoShack, get a 2AA battery holder and give that board 5000mAh of juice lol. Seeing as it eats a 150mAh battery a week, that'll keep it going for a long time lol. :rockout:

    Or you can get a 3 volt transformer thingy that plugs in the wall. Hell why didn't I think of this when I had the board.

    Me too! I rigged a 80MM fan for temporary but Its unplayable on high GPU intense games cause it gets to hot and the driver fails. I can play dungeon siege II all day and barely get over 60 deg LOL
