These capacitors may block larger heatsinks like this Thermalright AX7. It’s too high on the board. If you like to leave your board on the mobo tray in your case when changing HSF’s or re-applying thermal paste then your SOL. If you do, you’re asking for trouble The issues went away for a week, and now it’s suddenly back. Usually, that can be fixed by holding down insert while booting or using the fail-safe jumper that was part of the reference design but not actually implemented by most manufacturers to boot at MHz that’s only included on some MSI board I think it’s MSI.

Combined with a number of other factors including a mature DDR DRAM market with an availability of good modules, putting together a good Athlon XP box is easier than ever and performance has never been better. The downside to this BIOS however is that you sometimes need to adjust one of the eight jumpers located on the motherboard, and some of them are in awkward locations. Haven’t gone into bios, haven’t changed anything etc.

I’m going to have to warn you on this board: I have no problem recommending it. It just wouldn’t boot this morning.

Ars Scholae Palatinae et Subscriptor. The audio is okay, but since I have an Audigy I use that.
