    hi buening,

    first off... welcome to techspot :)

    if after reading this thread and knowing how simple it is to make your own, you still want to buy an expensive front panel controller...

    in regards to the Abit uGuru controller, yes you need an Abit board to use the overclocking / hardware monitoring features. however the CMOS clear switch should work with any motherboard, it has a standard 3-pin connector and it's just a simple switch (no electronics behind it). but buying that controller just to have a CMOS clear switch would be a waste of money.

    if you insist on buying a controller instead of making your own, then here is a 3.5" drive bay flash card reader that features a CMOS clear switch. this is definitely a more useful (and probably cheaper) option than the uGuru controller.

    cheers :wave:

    But what the hell ever happened to Soyo ? They used to make some pretty boss mobo's up until mid 05....They go belly up or sell to another manufacturer ?
