Re: GA-EP45-DS3R and Core 2 Quad Q8200
Well speaking of fan failure my front fan just failed. It was making some noise for some time( a steady ticking sound). I took it out to examine, at the time I first noticed, but nothing looked bad? I will look for a replacement as soon as I get a chance.

Also when I tried to change settings in the BIOS the system would not cooperate. Working on a BIOS template now.
Had a ATAPI error bring my system to its knees as well (stopped responding and went black screen- had to power off to get back to work). Apparently, my SATA DVD CD burner from HP is not playing well with my system. Thats all I can remember at this time.
More to the point of this thread, I did more tests with LinX.
Thanks for listening to me rant.
