Hi everybody,

New member on the forums but have been visiting this site for a couple of years and have got some useful info from all of you so thanks for that.

Well what a few days I have had, I have upgraded my asus a8n sli dual 6600gt system to a leadtek 7800, I had to rip everything out of my pc as I wanted to clean it inside, replace all my fans and chipset cooler as I have read that the asus ones are prone to failure and replace my stock amd cooler to an akasa ak 913 (really quiet and cooler than stock) and stick in my 7800.
Ran 3dmark05 and got 7590 and temps were nice and low, good start. Saw that leadtek had a new bios and downloaded it
Tried to flash it in dos with the pal one getting mismatch on sub vendor device, not good, tried the ntsc one in dos and it was ok and flashed it.
Heart beating like crazy as I did not want to stuff a 360 card up and flash was ok. Ran 3dmark05 again and got 7931 temps still good.
Am I happy or what.
Just thought I should share my good tidings with you all

System is amd 3500+ winnie, asus a8n sli, 2gb DDR XMS3200C2PT, 7800gtx
