One more question, does the motherboard come with a manual? and if so how good is it?
yes, my mobo came w/ a manual...however there were occasional points where i was scratching my head as to WHY my system wouldn't boot up, and the main cause was PROPERLY INSTALLING THE MEMORY IN THE CORRECT SLOT TO BOOT...
you have to put only 1 stick of RAM in slot B1 (blue slot) just to get the system to boot up into bios FIRST, then after that you're free to add more sticks if you want.
however, you MUST install indentical RAM sticks if you want to use the Dual Channel Mode function.
i don't have indentical RAM but it still works in single channel mode.
that was my main problem through the build.
the manual is pretty good, but just make sure you READ everything it says and don't try any shortcuts...just follow the instructions.
make sure to definately install the ASUS utility software and PC Probe which will tell you everything about your system.
any more questions....feel free to ask!
