ok here it is so far. it's an intel D845HV MOBO with an Intel 1.7ghz processor, 3 Dimm slots of up to 3 gigs om memory, 4 rear usb ports , and a plug on the board for front usb the case doesnt have a hole in the front for the usb yet..........
sad news tp report. i put in my Gf3 ti 200 into the agp slot of the above mb to test it, got a bunch of beeps and some smoke. now the agp don't work. card does. is it safe to assume it's burned out and go with pci?
well i actually managed to fry the board. although through no fault of my own i called the company i bought the board and cpu from and they asked what card i used and i told them my GF3 ti 200 and they said ok to send the board back with the cpu and they will test and intel will replace board in a week, they will test new board and ship when done. not bad huh? i knew my card shouldn't have shorted the board.
well after waiting and waiting i finally got the new board in. ****ers didn't even put the processor back in. had to do it all myself. well the computer is now up and running only after it took me almost an hour i had a bad ram chip, lol. but with that fixed she is happy as a clam about it. so now i just have to figure out how to clean up all the cables. i think i'll just buy rounded. other than that the case is next to be modded as with some additional fans. i'll post some pics as i progress along.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
