Thanks!

Now how to I get the stupid AsIo.dll to load properly on boot and keep this farking dumb-arse ghosty Asus 'Splendid' icon from flashing in the in upper right corner. I get the error "Can not load AsIo.dll" and 'EAccessViolation' when the Six Engine fails to load.

I really hate it when people write obtrusive crap that doesn't work for hardware drivers.

'Splendid' indeed...

I removed GamerOSD: now the silly flashing 'Splendid' logo is gone and I don't get the AsIo.dll or EAccessViolation. Maybe that's why my sound didn't work half the time. But now I get another silly error about Asus Smartdoctor needing GamerOSD for some ungodly reason. So I am going to uninstall Smartdoctor too!

Is there any other software that will measure videocard temperature? I'm getting pissed off with the Asus software.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I solved the chassis intrusion problem with a jumper.

Corsair TX650w 650 watt PSU
Seagate Barracuda 500GB 32mb cache
Samsung SH-S203 DVD+-R/CD-R/RW etc.

$980 without taxes or O/S all up.

What do you think?
Uh oh. My comp went dead on Tues. I think it's the video card as the reset button on the mobo works fine, the fans all spin up, the HD starts etc. Just no signal to monitor. The old Dell still works fine with monitor. If I leave the machine on for awhile, the video card is still cold.

I'm taking it in to Canada Computer today, since I bought all the parts there.

Double-check that the PCIe power is attached, double check all the cables. Perhaps adjusting things or moving the computer around has bumped a connection loose.

Too bad you don't have a spare PCIe vid card. Canada Comp may have a spare to try real quick, verify or eliminate it as the problem. Good luck with it!

Build looks sweet, nice job!

Thanks!

Turns out the motherboard has gone akimbo. Canada Computers diagnosed the problem and replaced it under warranty. I'm very impressed with their service and the quality of the people I dealt with.
