    Hi Drew,
    I installed 11.2's last week with no issues so far.
    December update had given me lots of problems but these newer ones
    look good.

    Hi John.. somebody needs to liven things up around here.. It is too quiet
    anymore. It sucks that Microsoft chose to do what they did. Understandable
    but it still sucks!

    You're right, Drew. Nevertheless, I'll keep monitoring this newsgroup, till
    it dies completely.

  15. Yeah, I just finally built a new box. First decent one in a couple of years.
    1090 Black hex core, 16 GB of RAM, and a 1690 video card on a good Gigabyte
    mainboard. Only weak links at this point are the conventional SATA2 hard
    drives. Need to buy new SATA3 and probably an SSD for the boot. But that
    will wait until next month. Meanwhile, rebuilding everything is a PAIN.

  16. Yup, the only expensive thing in my list was that video card. Same chipset
    mobo. And just trying to be patient until I can throw some newer SATA3 HDs
    at it, Or SDDs, if I have a good gig. ;)

    It makes me a little jealous hearing about the new rigs but, well I guess my
    old machine still does all right then
    Intel "bad axe" d975xbx2kr mainboard.
    Intel q6600 7.1 wei
    4gigs ddr2 800 7.1
    Twin ATI Sapphire toxic 4850s 7.4
    gaming graphics 7.4
    primary hard disk Intel x25 ssd as of last year but scores a 7.4
    Thermaltake Armor full tower with 3 120mm fans and 2 80mm fans
    Antec 550 power
    1 liteon dvd burner
    1 liteon dvd rom
    running 4 seagate barracuda's for storage.

    This 4+ year old box still rocks with win7 pro.. Heck it ran Vista business
    well too. I think I will hold off until windows 8 just to see what is out
    then upgrade.

    Hi Drew

    I was getting 7.4 for my Intel ssd until I changed "both" settings in the
    bios.
    I had it only changed in one place & was only getting 7.4.
    You might also have to update bios to the latest.....
    The Antec case has 5 -120mm fans & one big boy 200mm on the top.
    Side panel door has place for another 120mm fan & also another 120 fan
    in holder of 2nd drive bay(all fans 120mm & big boy 200mm are lit.
    Lots of air-flow
    Ram has 2 small fans on top of it if & when I over clock.
