Angry 750i FTW, more like PMO

I swear to god, this board refuses to do what it is supposed to. I finally got around to shaving down my waterblock so that the crossover tube will fit, get everything installed back in the case, and now everytime i try to install windows, both xp and vista, it wont freaking work. I even set the stupid bios to the failsafe defaults. Going to break something soon.

Ya i already pulled a stick of memory. I cant even get the thing to boot into windows to run updates. I just did some rearranging with my sata connections so that the main boot device is on the 0 slot and i -think- i might have xp working now. But seriously this has been a retarded experience. I have never had this much trouble getting windows installed. Dont know what the heck is going on. The more i screw with this crap, the more i'm wanting to go i7 when evga puts out there new x58. Stupid nvidia chipsets.

you need to download the enw drivers off another compy and burn them onto a disk, other wise your comp will just BSOD after instaling the stock drivers, right away.

Ya, i'm setting up dual boot right now, going to download the drivers to the data drive under xp and hope for the best, if that doesnt work i'll just download them to my laptop(which im on right now) and just pull them over from here.

Also, just for the record, these xspc full cover blocks are WAY more restrictive than the DD maze5's i had on the 4870s.
