What do you mean by wrong mounting hardware? I think i might have had this same problem. Could you explain further?

UPDATE


Im sending the motherboard back in a few days for the following reasons.


1. It wont boot past 400 FSB.


Although this isn't really the motherboards fualt, but more the chipsets.

975 Chipsets were made for low stable FSB's. SO it would make sense to get a 975 Chipset with a CPU with a high multi like an E6700, X6800, Qx6700.


But the 965 Chipsets would suit an E6300, E6400, and even an E6600 better because they can obtain much higher FSB's.


Since I have a 9X multi on my e6600, 400 FSB gives me 3.6 GHz, and I cannot boot above 380.

BUT with say an E6700, This would be an excellent motherboard as the e6700 has a 10X multi so 380X10 = 3.8 GHz.

I might pick up the regular P5B Deluxe with WiFi.

Oh and about the WiFi. It is SO much better then my PCI card. My signal strength is about 87 percent where as on my PCI Lynksys it was around 50/60.

I'l see what I can do and if I break 400 FSB I'l let you know.

i had the same problem with my msi 975x Platinum power up edition, no booting past 380 fsb.. it would be rock stable under that.. but at 380 and up... it just craps up.. its weird, maybe its one of those bugs. You should trying booting at 410 or something

yea i was wondering why the pictures looked funny.....lol
i just got my E6300 tonight and i probably wont be installing it until tomorrow. but i just found out that its an "A" i guess i should be sad...
i hope the E6300 will be a big improvement from a pentium 4 506 2.66ghz no hyperthreading. i wish i could afford the E6600. i will not be using the stock cooler for my e6300 but instead i will use my arctic cooling freezer 7 pro.
