Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1
Almost like clockwork

If it hadn't been for the boot order giving me the slip at the beginning, I might have done it this time around w/o you guys babysitting me again.
Like a charm! Plus this Mobo doesn't have a bad RAM slot and hasn't froze up once.
Gotta love it.
I plan to take it back to the kid I bought it from and get my money back.
Have this in a CoolerMaster HAF 932 Advanced case and really dig it also.
Only thing I don't like is the the Noctua CPU Cooler appears to vibrated more than I like.
Was going to ask you some RAM questions, then I found some on Feebay and am going to run it and not worry about it.
We'll see.
Thanks again you guys.
Huge relief
