    Thanks, it definitely is a solid motherboard :cool: Hopefully tonight I can get the rest of that build finished. Can't deny that it would be fun to get an FX-8120 rig together though!

    Sounds like a plan :toast: If this HDD ever finishes its low level format I will post pics of the finished Athlon X3 build later tonight. If I cant have an FX, I'm crossing my fingers its a stable unlock to an X4 :laugh:

    Wow! very generous of you :respect::respect: That is a sweet board :toast:

    If I was home when you sent this message and in the middle of gathering parts for my next cruncher I would have been all over this.... unfortunately I wasn't home and won't be pulling parts together for another cruncher until this summer :rolleyes:

    It unlocked to a Propus X4 (no L3 :(), but it still needs to be stability tested. Got into Windows with no tinkering, so thats a good sign. Do the temp sensors always get disabled when you unlock a CPU?

    That's awesome Dub! I don't think any of the processors that unlock will have the L3.

    Yep, the sensors are always wacky at best on a processor that unlocks.

    Always for the cores but they are historically inaccurate anyways :shadedshu The main CPU temp sensor on the board should still be working fine :cool:

    :laugh: Yea I had a system, I think it was a Asus Crosshair III, that reported an unlocked 550BE at 9C. :laugh: Now 9C is about equal to 48F. :laugh: Of course it was running on air.

    You would have thought it was outside in 20F weather. :roll:

    Why not just load the OS install image on a USB flash drive?

    lol, That would work if the board had ide. Not to familiar with ubuntu. Haven't used it in yrs.

    If someone has a link to where I can read on how to do it by usb, that'll help.

    Well today my PSU for my 6 core EXPLODED! It was a 400W 20A I had from a prevous build and was testing 3.8Ghz OC when about the 4th pass of ITB it Physically EXPLODED! Sparks flew Everywhere! I though it took it all with it but I was lucky, I had a 275W psu that I do testing with and it posted with it but I did not load windows due to the lower wattage so now Im down a cruncher.

    Would anyone have a PSU they could donate for the price of shipping or one they would sell cheap. My six core is dead in the water :(
