when you retire or find a machine to old to save get coffee can remove all screws

fasteners and stand off's pace in coffee can repeat often.

now when you need screw get can.

I just changed my cooling from stock which was running at 97 degrees to Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid CPU Cooler System which runs at 54 degrees. My Thermaltake V1 Max-Performance CPU Cooler with Massive 110mm Fan kept temps to around 68 degrees but the pins broke and I put the stock cooler in until I bought and replaced it with the Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid CPU Cooler. I also upgraded to win 8 pro for 39.99 upgrad and a full win 8 pro for 69.99 on my laptop I tried to use the same one from my desktop to my lap top but Microsoft said it was already being used so I got a new key. I also got a new Acer G276HL Dbd 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor and AZZA Solano 1000 CSAZ-1000 Full Tower Case (Black) and just got my cruncher back up and running nice and cool and quite.

I guess Windows has installed the default drivers for the MB/chipset and probably thats why it doesnt see the 3rd channel (and the memory attached to it)...
May be you need to use the MB install CD to load the correct drivers but, as probably there is nothing in it for Win8, the best option is to see if there is an upgraded set of drivers for your MB for the new version of Windows...


Good idea I upgraded from win7 ultimate to win8 pro using drivers from my upgrade which is win7. ASUS web sit has only up to win7 ultimate drivers for P6T board no win8 drivers so I guess I am out of luck unless they write win8 drivers for P6T which is an old board.

I found at tigerdirect had ASUS P9X79 for 259 dollars and i7 3820 for 279 dollars if I can get the 600 dollars up I will upgrade to that.

I just upgraded since September to now

Coolmax ZU Series ZU-1000B 1000W ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Modular Power Supply = $87.74

win 8 pro upgrade = $39.99

Acer G276HL Dbd 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor = $244.76

AZZA Solano 1000 CSAZ-1000 Full Tower Case (Black) = $114.99

Antec Kuhler H2O 620 Liquid CPU Cooler System = $59.99

OCZ Technology 128GB Agility 4 Series SATA 6Gb/s 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive( SSD) With Up to 420 MB/s Read And 72K Max.IOPS- AGT4-25SAT3-128G = $99.99

So these upgrades cost a little over $700 including S&H so Iguess I will get the new I7 3820 and ASUS P9X79 which will replace the i7 920 and the ASUS P6T board and get 2 more sticks of corsair vengeance memory and keep my 2 460 cards
