    Hey chicken patty I had the same 88 code after a bios flash and several OClocking attempts. After I reset the cmos via the jumper it booted up. Give it a shot it worked for me.

    It's good to run a fan on that NB/Mosfet cooler. I just got done strapping a water block to the North Bridge, but now I'm tired. It's a great board, I love it. :)

    It's a Swiftech MCW30. It had some hard time fitting as I had to bend two 2" bolts, then widen the holes in the brackets to acconodate the bent bolts. It seems tight and there isn't a gap between the block and the lower half of the heatsink, so hopefully it will work. One nice thing is that the water block sits right on top of the heatpipe for the mosfets now. It should be up and running tomorrow if there aren't any leaks. *crosses fingers :)

    Been planning out a system for the kid's LP JR/X4 9550 setup, would you recommend that block, or should I look for something the fits better? I don't shy away from a little modding if it comes to it :)

    I can't recommend the swiftech block. So far trying to mount it has been futile, so I'm getting an EK NB/SB "Asus" 1 block for it. According to the compatability chart it should be a direct fit.

    I had a DFI LP UT X48 T2R awhile back.. and when ever I tried to update bios using winflash, my computer wouldn't boot up. I searched all around forums and stuff and gathered that winflash can actually kill your bios chip if it doesn't complete correctly. After reading this I contacted DFI and they sent me a new BIOS chip after I mailed in my old one. My computer started right up with the new one installed. From what I have learned, I can comfortably say it is much safer to flash the bios using a different method than winflash. Since then I have been using burned .iso files and an external floppy drive to update bios. That's been working like a charm. I don't know if that was your problem but just thought I'd let ya know anyways =).

    could have been. I had done a BIOS flash through WIn flash not long before mobo died. However, it booted up afterwards. Wierd :confused:

    Any of you guys know what CPU NB VID? I believe this is a divider. Default in the BIOS is 00. THis is not voltage.
