    Or you can return the board and get a nvidia chipset and save yourself alot of grief.

          so what? was there a gigabyte board in the mix? No matter which chipset - gigabyte runs hot.

          and which chipset for amd wins with cnq enabled?
          790GX
          and which ones loose?
          nvidia

              fine, but that does nothing to the fact that gigabyte is just a bad choice for a motherboard.

                    an I love asrock because the boards are cheap and robust.
                    Something I can't say about MSI or Gigabyte. Had lots of mainboards in the past, Asrock never let me down.

                      there are 4 usb ports on the back, how do i tell which is usb 1.1, and which is usb 2.0. but really, should that matter? its usb, simple keyboard, and simple mouse, should just work.
