No, that would have been a further pain in the arse. The concept is great, but I think it's still not too practical. Unless you're one of those people who MUST have a totally quiet PC...

Oddly enough, YES!




The mobo is over-clock friendly and has a N.O.S. feature...

Non delay
Overclocking
System

Basically, mobo monitors CPU usage, and gives it an overclocking "kick" when needed... very dangerous stuff, I thought I fried my processor one night when I set the overclocking percentage a bit high, and WHAMO- I went from 2.2mhz to something like 9.7 (for a sec.), and my system froze.. GULP... All turned out well in the end though...

Oh, I have a cool British chick voice that says, "Power On System Test Passed, now booting from operating system..."

Thanks! It looks MUCH better in person though! I really wanted a PC I could showcase, not just stuff under a desk...
