BTW, are you going to use your old 8120 on this one?

They must have gotten the hint, as my two meter came with four large and like 10 small clips and I used all but one small and ran it all the way around the inside corner of the edge and it went past the start point by 4-5 inches......just perfect.

Thanks! I've run into another snag, though. I got the WiFi running and had over a hundred Wondows updates download to my computer. I unchecked the one for IE10 and tried to run them. Two or three installed then the *&^%$#@! thing refuses to install any more. I shut off the WiFi for now until I figure what is wrong. Anyone have any ideas what to do besides shooting it?

I'm dropping in my 965 BE Phenom and then when I update my Corsair 400R which has my OC'd 8120 in it, then I can drop a 8350 or the king of the Vishara hill later and drop the 8120 in this. For now my better half is going from a DDR2 4GB 2.8 std. Phenom to this and the extra speed should be noticeable.

It's a royal PITA but try to only install 4-5 at once. If then there are some that refuse to install, search Google for the offending KB number and download and install manually.
Option 2 here may help.
Windows Update - Reset

It's not near the PITA as not being able to update at all. Thanks for your help! I used the third option and I'm now running updates in small batches.

Nice job, at least you're back on track now. Isn't this building fun?

Oh yeah, I'm having a ball! I got the intitial updates finished and hid IE10 and the language packs. Now I'm at the annoying where I keep checking for more updates, find some, install them, check again, find some more, install them... Seems like an endless loop.

And I still have more hardware to install. Yikes!

The hardware will be a lot more fun than watching updates download. Good to hear you got them slapped into submission.

Yea, watching updates download is in the same category of watching paint dry.
