I've heard alot of people have problems with the chipset overheating because of the close prox to the pci-e card, whats your system temp running at?
Yeah Newegg has good customer service, but if you look at over half of the nforce4 boards it says '** This item is warranted through the product manufacturer only.' In CA a seller has to take a defective item back within 30 days, its a law, so local is a safe bet with a little higher cost.
I hadn't looked at epox before and just now looked at it. I like the code indicator, and it looks like it has a total of 4 fan headers, the more the merrier. The chipset looks well placed, and the oversized heatsink. 2 things I don't like is the odd placement of the power connector, and the fact that the 7900gtx that I'm gonna use will cover up at least 1 of the 2 ide ports.
I saw the ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe
on another post, and seems like it has a good track record, even though the 32x would be a waste for a non-sli solution, its also a little pricy.
I don't really believe the AM2 will be really worth the wait, and then having to deal with new motherboards, and first modifaction of the cpu. I don't think it'll worth the trouble untill 6 months after it comes out.
The sadest part of all this was I was trying to get out of building my parents computer so I wouldn't have to trouble shoot it every other day, and gave them the price of 2500 as a bluff....
