    Does this mean that you two are not going to drop everything you're doing, and assuage my deep rooted, nagging fears, about the possible failure of a motherboard I don't actually own, and have no intention of buying?

    Giving it some thought though, I wonder if I should submit my article, "DRAM, now available in Suppository", to the "Digest" as well....:rolleyes:

    (Note: MegadouchePowerrrrPC™ is a ficticious OEM. Any resemblance to Hewlett-Packard support is purely co-incidental)

    *Useful Cougar Point factoid.


    If it concentrates on I/O throughput then it should be right up RD's alley!

    Well thanx anyway, MegadouchePowerrrrPC™, I'm never even going to consider possibly buying one of these boards from another maker, ever again.

    Way back when men were men, and hard drives were, well hard, MegadoucheStorageConglomerate™, would have at least had the courtesy to slap together a faulty firmware update, that would have bricked the part altogether, thereby circumventing the aggravation and hardship of your inaccessible RMA procedure. This would have been instrumental in allowing me to move on, in an attempt to piece together the tattered shards of my life, that your faulty motherboard have created.

    Go Eagles! No really, go.

    Indeed, while those were brilliant Chef...I enjoyed your fictional works. My favorites were "A tale of a City" and "Some of the Kings Men"

    Oy...! Now you're going to tell me that doesn't rate a boo, aren't you?

    My favorites are, "Dances with Wolf", and, "Didn't quite Make it out of New York".

    For adult entertainment, it would be, "Snow White and the Two Dwarfs". (Condensed dual entendre)

    That last one is hot enough to blow the SATA controller right out of a Cougar Point chipset board.

    Luckily I learnt from the RD editing process. I negotiated my my next article to be index linked to government fiscal spending, so look out for "20 Billion Leagues Under the Sea" running through to the November 2015 issue (or impeachment...whichever comes first).

    BTW*: Cougar Point covers twelve different chipsets (C202, 204 and 206 for Xeon E3-12xx, P67, H67 and H61 for desktop, B65 and Q67 for office/business, and HM65, HM67, QM67 and QS67 for the monile markets).

    BTW = Back on Topic Woohoo
