    I am working on the ammo PC upgrades right now, along with the upgrade I will be putting a LCD into the green metal case.

    But there won't be updates on that for a while.

    just curious - why exactly do you need a switch for the bios reset jumpers? i know it's difficult to reach, but it's not really something you're going to be using that often, and if you/someone else accidently hits it, it'll screw things up for ya

    It will not be accessable to people on the outside.
    (You have to open the back door to get at it)

    And yes, as I like to tweak this system for gaming, and the inevitable bios reset will most likely be needed, and taking the entire PC out of the case is hard just for one jumper.

    I'm about to (kinda) do this with my Zalman Flower Cooler - need to finish a rig to mount the fan to push air through the fins and out the back...

    Zap, just a little question for you. Why did you go and buy a XP3200 when you can simply oc a 2500 to 3200 by increasing the FSB from 166 to 200? A bit disappointed... ;)

    www.digikey.com
    (Huge catalog, it may take some time, but it's there)

    I already had the Corsair CAS2 XMS Memory from my main system.
    (Which has been changed to a FX)
    So rather then try and push 333 to 400, I would rather put in 400, and push that even higher.

    I wish I could void my mobos warranty as much as you!! Just too scared to mess with a new mobo ya know ;) Cool stuff dude, like the idea for the CMOS clear. Just make sure it can never be set by mistake (i.e. in transport maybe).... :D
