Time to fix the bios.

Before we go further , we need a stable base ;


I actually bent a 6 foot cheater bar on the vise making sure it was good and tight...lol

I want a keepsake : might as well be the POS northbridge....

Good riddance to bad garbage.I felt quite good after stage 1 of this process.

Nvidia chipset : never again.

Nvidia : Expect my indivdually labeled bags of sand in the mail you fucks.

680i can die a rotten death as well as any nvidia chipset.

My NF4 SLI is actually an awesome chipset. Everything after that was a massive failure on Nvidias part.
