    The driver support sucks - I can´t use the cards driver control panel in Win7 - messes up when you try to use 5.1 sound.

    Instead I use the driver only and Win7´s control options.

    I think he was meaning to remove the plastic tray in the cage. They will break up the airflow more than what the sides of the bays already do. Removing them will allow for the best airflow potential, even with the steel sides of the rack still in place.

    I knew where you were going, just trying to clerify that I dont believe he ment to remove the cage, but rather just the plastic trays.

    Ya pretty empty drive bays. :laugh:

    Only need one hard drive and I have it in the optical bay for better cable management. Just left the drive trays in there for now, I want to see if I can take out the whole drive cage. Didn't really have time, just wanted to get it up and running. Might have to drill out some rivets and then use small sheetmetal screws when I want to put it back. Also thinking about adding a couple of white led fans in the top if I can figure out a way to hook them up to the switch so I can turn them off.

    Thanks for all the kind words. :toast:

    Found this on a corner shelf with a killer price tag of $150 (equivalent). It was love at first sight.

    Yes, it's brand new. My i7-970 is on its way.

    The teeth on the skull make me laugh. Nice find, BTW. For some reason, top intel boards don't hit the shelves here...

    Nice looking board! Personally I would not pay 150$ for a X58 board when I can get cheaper P67 boards for new chipset.

    I'm looking at it differently. I can buy a new $150 X58 board instead of a $150 Z68 one, and I'm getting a used i7-970 for about $50 more than I'd pay for a new i7-2600K. So a six-core chip that OC's quite OK.

    Yea the 32NM 6 core gulftowns are still very good! I thought about 970 but the price of the chip alone here would almost get me a full sandy bridge combo!
