My System Specs


No wonder it doesnt f'in work.....What a pathetic job on the thermal compound.
Rubber thermal pads for Vregs ? wtf !!
Ok, here's a question for those with a lot more knowledge than I.........

I notice that the Vregs used on this board are small when compared to newer boards without one of these big honking "full board" heatpipes..... Does this mean that the use of a Vreg heatsink allows mobo manufacurers to cheap out on the beefier components they need without a bigA$$ heatsink?
