Windows 7: Going to swap mobo and cpu shortly

03 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Going to swap mobo and cpu shortly

Wish me luck.
Should go smoothly like it did the last time.
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Last swap was a Q6600 Asus board to an i7 870 and Asus board.
Powered up, Win 7 saw the new hardware, installed drivers, rebooted and all was good.
Now is the i7 870 Asus to an i7 2600K Asus board.
I am still running my original Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit install from August 2009.

Now if the UPS man would hurry up and drop off the parts.

I imagine everything will go fine, I have done similar many times and the only minor thing needed was phone activation of Windows each time.

Have fun
