    Because it's just a cheap piece of plastic. I seriously doubt it's good at even shielding the CODEC from EMI.

    Plastic cap for the Creative CODEC.

    It was attached with two screws. I removed them.

    See above. ;)

    I told ya I'd have some soon after Computex. W1zz is, well, a wizzard, after all.

    AH, you got your gooooooooodieeeeeeeeeeeeeees too!

    Yes, seems purely a vanity plate, with a soft squishy plastic inner ring. Made for a neat picture, though.

    It might very well be, altohugh I do beleive the VRM designs on each board is different, so that'd be were they might conflict with each other.

    You guys asked for ASRock reviews, so we've made it a reality. They just arrived yesterday, and I do ahve several other board reviews to come still, but I'll squeeze one into the next few weeks.

    Hey Athlonite, Well i'd like a full tower case with a side window and dust filters on the intakes...needs to be able to mount a 240 rad in the top and hopefully under $300NZD - Looking at the NZXT phantom enthusiast at this stage.

    Currently looking at selling my HAF 932, motherboard, cpu (with the Xiggy tower cooler), ram, both of my 5850's, dvd writer and 160GB HDD.

    Know anyone who might be interested?

    I've read your review, nice work man! You mentioned that you updated the bios to the latest revision - which method did you use to update the bios? and what improvements did you see other than the voltage readings?

    Mines still in its box waiting for a new case and PSU. Will post loads once it's up and running :)

    Honestly, I didn't notice much else. I'm sure there are other improvements with compatibility with memory and such, but that wasn't really an issue I encountered myself.

    Part of my testing process always involves updating to the most recent BIOS. I used the USB BIOS Flashback method, as well as the tool inside the BIOS.
