    Ok, I put it in a dishwasher to cleanout the socket, it would have been fine if I didn't forget to take out the CMOS battery and discharge the capacitors

    lol

    here are some base builds to work off of if you want.

    My Base Builds

    This was before they had opterons for 939. I have a feeling with your knowledge youd rather do DFI. Just a few setups for you to look at. Not to mention i could use your point of view on the builds :D .

    Dude, find a wholesaler you can buy from. NewEgg is alot more expensive than a good wholesaler.

    Actually I get really good good prices from a friend. Anyways the mobo would have been fine if I discharged all the capacitors and didn't forget to take out the CMOS battery... it still powers up but it doesnt boot so I'm going to soldier a new BIOS chip omn it and see if that does anything
