It was running in my tower so I just put on the aftermarket chipset coolers and put it on the tray before I put any power to it.
My communications agian. I stripped it all down, to install coolig system and to apply Arctic Silver Ceramaque to all. Then I put it on the tray.
This AM, I decided to do the right proper test bench-no difference so I pulled the CPU and it looks like there are 2 pins in the socket that are bent. Even with a magnifying glass I can't be sure but those two (side-by-side) shine different than all the rest! my evil twin will bet a buck that is it.
I pulled the HSF & CPU and installed it in the 780I SLI MCP and PetCarrier ll is running right now-It's not complete-PSU isn't fasened down yet. I don't have the switches installed and the DVD needs to bee fastend perment.
Next month I'll take the 790i down to the jewlers and have them take a look at the socket and see if that is it-gotta be-would something loke that destroy the board? Didn't hurt anything els as I can tell.
I did a quick install of XP so I could get to my WIN 7 .ISO-I've got to do a little temp reading but I'll be folding by 0-dark-30!

The mod looks good! The batteries should be charged enough so I can take a few shots. I'll post them in the regular thread.
