    Would if I could Marcos, to be honest I've often found it a pain to get these vandal switches in the led colour I wanted so it's something I should have learnt by now but haven't, must be someone on here that has though, I'm almost tempted to wreck one to find out how to take it apart lol it would be very handy to know for future reference.

    If there were a greater amount (and cheaper) buttons like that here in Brazil, I would not care so much to open, would open at once to see how it works... :dremel:

    But here as they are relatively "expensive" and difficult to find, can not do it... :wallbash:

    Maybe with your help "dismantling" of these buttons, you will be able to help? :naughty:

    Guys, i need your help ...

    On Monday, is already 99% sure that i get one of these:

    [​IMG]

    And how had the grace to my father to travel to Foz do Iguacu, near the Paraguay, and how hard I'm wanting to set up the "Mega Box, I thought at one time to migrate from platform 1155, as the bulldozer are taking too long to be released.

    So I chose the mobos, it would be one of these:

    ASROCK P67 FATALITY PROFESSIONAL (B3)

    [​IMG]

    or ASUS SABERTOOTH P67

    [​IMG]

    As for the processor, here in Rio de Janeiro, is little more expensive than in Paraguay so I'll buy it here.

    I hope you can help me. :thumb:

    Thank you all.

    Nice build man. I've got the old i7 sabertooth, it's not let me down yet. I'm going to Rio in June from England for a long holiday.

    I've been really impressed with the Asus Sandy Bridge boards :thumb:

    I'm sure both boards are good performance wise but I'd go for the Asus board for looks. ;)
    The other board looks a bit garish.

    Yeah out of those 2 I'd say the asus & hope you have better luck than I always seem to have with asus motherboards, I know I'm a tiny minority who seems to have problems with them though, I must be cursed when it comes to asus motherboards :lol:.

    Thanks man! :thumb:

    You already know which place you will stay here in Rio de Janeiro?

    Thanks for the tip! :thumb:

    Yeah, the ASUS visually matches the style of the case, since the ASRock board is a more "flashy", but she seems to have an ability to overclock higher than that of ASUS.

    Thanks for the tip! :thumb:

    The problem is that this Gigabyte mobo is not to sell where I buy.

    She's a great mobo!

    ASUS has a very good support RMA here in Brazil, but hopefully not have problems with the mobo. :rock:

    Murphy's Law got me again, after all "If anything can go wrong, it will"... :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:

    My father could not buy any of the two mobos, though he ran into a store that had announced that ASUS, but the clerk could not find it... :duh:

    So with that, I'll have to buy everything here in Brazil.

    Thanks to everyone who helped and gave their opinions. :thumb:

    The places that people like to go are: Pão de Açúcar and Cristo Redentor, but you can also go to beaches like Copacabana, Ipanema, Barra da Tijuca and Recerio dos Bandeirantes.

    And in the center of the city of Rio de Janeiro, you can visit the Teatro Municipal, Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, Centro Cultural dos Correios, Casa França Brasil, among others, but the latter is more suitable for those who love the arts and art exhibitions.

    Depending on the time you spend here in Brazil, as here in the fall, the weather might not be so good, but you can enjoy a lot here. :thumb: :naughty:
