    It might be because you have not clicked the link in the registration email sent to you? I see in your settings that it's set to allow others to see your avatar, signature, ect so you should be able to create those unless there's a setting somewhere else I missed.

    Anyway, I'll change you to a registered member now, be nice with the images and BIO if this allows you to set it now If you still don't have the options in the above image let me know and I'll look for the amount of posts you need before you can use those, because a setting like that would have to be the only thing left that's stopping you from using your profile.

    *Edit* It was the registration email, you can't use signature, ect until you've clicked the link to register. I changed your member status now though, so you should be all set and can customize your profile.

I connect each push-pin connector using a cross pattern, for example top left -> bottom right -> bottom left -> top right. When I'm done, I firmly pull on each push-pin one at a time to ensure that each one is firmly connected. It is possible that one or more push-pins are not fully seated.
    I also use the cross pattern. They snapped in fine and didn't move at all when pulled.

    Make sure that there isn't any debris that might prevent the cpu from seating fully in the socket.

    It's possible that there is an incompatibility with your psu and motherboard.
    Does your camera have a macro tele-zoom option that would let you shoot from farther away but still get a close-up photo of the pins?
    No, unfortunately it can only focus in macro when I'm really close and it won't let me zoom out in macro mode. Best would be to have a 400mm zoom :-)
    It sounds like your psu has 2 4-pin ATX_12V connectors. Verify that each connector is fully seated and that they are installed correctly.
    Yes they are fully seated and connected correctly. I reconnected them several times. The connectors are keyed, so it's impossible to put them incorrectly. I've also tried with just one connector, which the board allows (according to the manual of the board).

    Thanks for registering me. I didn't receive that mail. I remember waiting for it 2 days ago, looking in all kind of junk email folders. I have changed my email now to another one, maybe this will work better.

    Before I changed my email address in the settings I could see the avatar and signature menus, thanks to your modifications, but now they are gone again (maybe because I've changed my email? - there was a message for about half a second (too fast to read) after I've changed the mail)

    Yes, it could have been due to something with changing email, I'll check the setting again and be sure you are set as a registered member.

    I think we've been having some outgoing email issues lately, so that may be why you are not receiving the registration email.

    *Edit*

    That's it, I checked and it was again set to awaiting email confirmation! So leave your email as-is now, otherwise it will reset again and you wont be able to change those options until you get the email. You should now be able to set a signature again
